What’s more, the Gaels were retiring the jersey of all-time leading scorer Matthew Dellavedova.
When the Cougars fell behind by 14 points...

Cleveland Cavaliers (13-8) 94
Oklahoma City Thunder (9-13) 103

As soon I post this, I’m going to go back to polishing off a pint of cookie dough ice cream...

2. The Cavs (13-7) beat the Eastern Conference leaders after trailing...

Whatever was said in the locker room and during practice on Thursday seemed to work well for the Cavaliers.
Lebron James looked like a beast during this game. He turned his 11 point...
