Cavaliers’ Winning Steak Snapped at Eight. LBJ is the Player of the Week. »

Nov 20, 2008 at 6:10 pm | lebron-jamesnba-basketball

The Cavaliers looked like the team that won eight straight through the better part of three quarters in Detroit. But down the stretch, the Pistons looked like the team that had topped the Wine and Gold the last three trips they’ve made to Motown. Wednesday’s game was a tale of two halves. Before intermission, the Cavs did all the things that they had throughout their eight-game run – protecting the basketball, moving bodies and the ball and getting to the stripe consistently. But late in the third, Cleveland’s guards got into foul trouble, and the affair unraveled soon afterward. Earlier this week LeBron James was named as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second straight week for games played Monday, November 10th through Sunday, November 16th. In three games during the week, James averaged an NBA-high 33.7 points on .600 shooting, 8.0 assists and 6.0 rebounds in 41.0 minutes per game. James has now won the award 15 times in his career: for the second time this season, three times during 2007-08, twice in 2006-07, five times in 2005-06 and on three occasions during the 2004-05 campaign.

    I thought english was the language of the states maybe I am wrong :lol:
    Good game yesterday but the sheed and AI were in the zone in the fourth quarter, the cavs need another inside scorer

  • Nene33

    I think the Cavs should be just fine, they get about 27 ppg on average from their inside players, which is pretty good, especially with LeBron on the team(that puts frontcourt production around 57 ppg, for example Pistons get 51 ppg from their front-court).
    LeBron’s been a monster so far, and definitely deserves to be player of the week, and leading the MVP race.

  • Coach Oakley

    The Cavs are doing great. The team is dangerous and I believe under Lebron’s leadership the team will be a serious threat (if not title contender) in the NBA playoffs.
