Cavs dismantle Mavs

Wow. That is what I kpet repeating while watching the Cavaliers completely destroy the Mavericks last night. LeBron James played great basketball, like always. Mo Williams played great as well, and he was unstoppable in the 4th quarter. Wally Szczerbiak played well, especially for him. Everyone else did their job, and that gave the Cavs an easy win in big D. Anderson Varejao and Ben Wallace played great defense on Dirk Nowitzki. Wallace didn't score, but got 13 rebounds and 3 blocks. Varejao had great husstle plays, even late in the game when the win was locked up. He got a steal then threw a lob pass to LeBron who took a dribble and then made an easy layup. The Mavericks should be embarrassed by this loss, and the Cavs should play like this all year if they want any chance at the division crown.

Cavs dismantle Mavs

Yes it was an impressive win.  Yes we destroyed the Mavs.  I only hope this is the start of a regular occuring event as a Cavs fan.  We beat a good team in the Mavs, a perrenial playoffs team out of the West.  We held their superstar to 8 points I believe.  Good Stuff.  But is it a day in and day out philosophy were talking about, or a fluke.  We had them down by 16 at one point, and gave up that lead completely before coming back strong and finishing.  The difference this time is we produced in the fourth period.  Haven't seen much of that this year.  Look at the two biggest games of the year already with Boston and NO, HUGE meltdowns in both ending periods.  We need to stick with the improved defensive strategies, and get out quicker on the breaks.  Otherwise players like Chris Paul, shred our D as seen in that game.  I'm not a Cavs hater, just wanna see something different then the previous two years, moreso against the West for when the Finals come around :P
