“Dwight Howard channelled his inner Hakeem as he absolutely destroyed the Cavaliers’ front court on his way to 28 points on 9 of 11 shooting and 18 rebounds. He also tacked on 4 assists, 4 blocks, and 4 steals, coming quite close to achieving the elusive ‘5×5′ stat-line.” [Conrad Kaczmarek]

“Earlier in the epic streak, Scott toyed (or ‘tinkered’) with the rotation, providing heavy minutes to players like Manny Harris and even giving a few starts to Christian Eyenga.  As the season has worn on, both players have seemingly fallen to the bottom of the depth chart once again, but it was these two players who excelled when called upon in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s loss.” [Scott Sargent]

“Davis, who is averaging 14.3 points on .455 shooting and 4.3 assists in four games with the Cavs, had similar problems on occasion while playing for New Orleans and the Clippers, but doesn’t think [his back spasms are] anything serious. He does, however, want to get things right before he takes the court again.” [Rick Noland]

The Cavs may be an abhorrent basketball team, but, at the very least, The Q’s security staff can assure you there’s a low probability of your exit from the arena involving an ambulance.

“Deron Williams for Nets; Baron Davis for #Cavs, probably out for Wednesday’s game at The Q” [Bob Finnan]

“Go us. RT @Magic_Radio: Magic were the 1st team in NBA history to sweep a 4-game series with the Cavs by winning each game by double digits!” [Eric Knappenberger]

“Not sure whose more insane. The Cavs coming out each and every game with the same game plan or me for thinking it might change.” [realcavsfans]
