The Cavs Report-Issue 1

Story Of The Day

Cavs Beat Nets, 81-77

Yesterday was Game 1 of Clevelands’ series with the New Jersey Nets. They beat the Nets at home in a low scoring game, 81-77. Lebron lead the Cavs with 21 pts, 11 reb and 7 ast. Z added 8 pts and 14 reb, and Gooden added 14 pts and 14 reb. The guards played well too with Hughes 17 pts and 6 ast and Pavlovic scoring 15 pts.

Also Pavlovic made a big block in the final 2 minutes on a Jason Kidd layup. After the game Pavlovic said this about the block, “I lost the ball on that pass and I just didn’t give up on the play because it was very important. I knew Jason Kidd probably was not going to dunk, so I just followed him and tried to get the ball.”

For the Nets Carter had 21 pts, 13 reb and 6 ast. Kidd had 7 pts, 9 reb and 10 ast. Other players of note are Jefferson who cored 16 pts, Morre who scored 10 pts, and Nachbar who added 12 pts.

Game 2 is Tuesday at 8:00 PM eastern time in Cleveland.
