Thankfully, preseason is almost over. In the penultimate exhibition game, the Cavs traveled to Cincinnati to take on one of their main rivals for a playoff spot this season, the Washington Wizards. Jarrett Jack started at the point guard spot, and Kyrie Irving made a surprise start at shooting guard. Andy started at center, TT at the power forward, and Earl Clark got the nod at the three. The first quarter couldn’t have gone better for the Cavs as Jarrett Jack made a very positive impact, notching five points and five assists in 10 minutes of play before Mike Brown shut him down for the night. Tristan Thompson grabbed every loose ball in sight for an eye-popping 10 first quarter rebounds. Kyrie looked to score first, flashing a silky jumper and a command of the ball in transition. Earl Clark stopped trying to do too much and hit face-up jumpers and dunked when he ran with Kyrie. Foremost, the Cavs were the rebounding mavens that Kevin described yesterday, and they closed they closed the quarter 32-20.
