Baron Davis Still a Dangerous Weapon for Cleveland Cavaliers

baron-davis

Fans in Toronto got a firsthand look tonight at why teams around the NBA still need to fear the beard.

Baron Davis played like a man possessed as he dished out nine dimes while scoring eight points in the first half. He continued to roll in the second half and finished the game with 19 points and a game-high 12 assists along with a couple of huge daggers in the fourth quarter to ice the win for his team.

Davis got J.J. Hickson going early in the game with some great lobs and by setting him up with some easy looks. Hickson benefitted by the inspired play of Davis by scoring 21 points in the first half while going 7-10 from the field.

Hickson finished with a game-high 28 points and a team-high 10 rebounds.

Cleveland Cavaliers Break their own NBA Record Losing Streak!

Get ready for another round of the much-deserved “Cleveland is the most tortured sports city of all” type stories. It’ll be exactly like what the media produced following Lebron James’ official departure. Perhaps Joe Posnanski will write another piece about how everything in Cleveland has a depressing (or at least slightly dark) sounding name.

With a total of 52 games played this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 8-44. That is the worst record in the NBA. They have lost 25 consecutive games, which ties a franchise record and the NBA’s all-time record set by….guess who? the ‘81-‘82 and the ‘82-‘83 Cavaliers!

Like someone who really needs to hit the stairmaster, Cleveland desperately needs to strengthen their Cavs.

They lost 96-99 tonight in Dallas. Congrats Mark Cuban, you’re the next person who gets to set Cleveland aflame like the Cuyahoga River.
