They made a very nice run in the third quarter to take the lead back after being down as many as 11 at one point. Andre Iguodala was looking very good out there. A few nice dunks and some very nice crossovers on a few defenders.
Then came the 4th quarter.
With the Cavaliers benching their franchise player in LeBron James to give way to scrub time, the Cleveland bench rose to the occasion and quickly took back the lead and never looked back… AGAINST OUR STARTERS. It was pathetic.
Oh and Mareese Speights; I noted a while back that I thought he could be a star in the making, well that was in Summer league, and I was way off after watching last night. He was the most laxadazical NBA player I have ever seen. Walking up and down the court, barely concentrating at the line and jacking his 2nd FT after BARELY making the first and getting the roll. It was very frustrating to watch, especially as he was getting owned on the glass at every end by Sasha Pavlovic and Anderson Varejao.
The Chosen One in 3 qtrs of play: 20 points 8 rebounds and looking meaner then ever.
With the loss the Sixers fall to 3-3 in the preseason with one game left to play against division rival, New Jersey Nets tonight.
