Good call Sandy. This is probably one Cavs game we could have (and should have) avoided seeing… mainly because it was just a rerun of last Friday night’s game in Miami. Things went sort of okay for the first quarter plus… at least until Eric Spolstra once again decided to blind the guys in¬†wine & gold light blue and white (wait, are we sure these were ever colors this team…
