This game looked like it was going to overtime. Kyrie Irving’s layup tied the game with 0.7 seconds left but Brandon Jennings nailed a 28 footer as time expired. This was a back-and-forth affair. The Cavs built an early lead, then blew it. The Bucks had a lead for awhile, but the Cavs fought back. There’s a few takaways from this game: 1) Kyrie Irving is REALLY good. 2) So is Anderson Varejao. 3) Dion Waiters can play 4) In no way can the Cavs have five bench players on the floor at one time. 5) Luke Walton is blackmailing Byron Scott. Irving paced the Cavs with 29 points, Varejao put up 20 and 17, and Dion had 13. Mike Dunleavy (who the Cavs decided not to guard) paced everyone with 29 points, Monta Ellis had 23 and Brandon Jennings finished with 13 points, including the game-winner. The Cavs’ next game is Monday night in Los Angeles against the Clippers. Game time is 10:30 pm.
