Where LeBron Is Just Too Much Happens
The Cleveland Cavaliers continued to dominate the Detroit Pistons last night, as once again, the boys from Motown proved they have absolutely no answer for the presumptive MVP. Last night’s game was a little more hard-fought than Game 1, especially in the fourth quarter, which saw Mike Brown rest his superstud. Once the Pistons cut the lead down from double-digits, James reentered the game to put the finishing touches on Cleveland’s 2-0 series lead.
There were some fun moments in the game, especially when Anderson Varejao got involved.
Overall, however, it was another dominate performance from the Eastern Conference’s best team. There’s no point in breaking this game down like I did with Houston/Portland. The bottom in last night’s game — as well as the rest of the series: The Cavaliers have LeBron and the Pistons, well, don’t.
It was another night as the office for James, as he posted this ho-hum stat line: 29 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists. Moe Williams and Delonte West were also effective for Cleveland, scoring 21 and 20, respectively.
Game 3 is Friday night. It’s too bad the league did away with the best-of-five series for first-round match ups — at least for Cleveland, anyway. Detroit, for that matter, also deserves to be put out of their misery so the franchise can move on to the offseason — where a rebuilding project no doubt awaits.
