Small Equals BIG Success

On March 1st it seemed like even Danny Green would have scored 30 points against the New York Knicks. The Cavs led by 12 after the 1st quarter and never looked back after that. At halftime the Cavs were already blowing out the Knicks, a score of 74-48 and looking forward to a stat stuffing second half with no worries of a comeback.

LeBron lead the way with 22 points, 7 Rebounds, 7 Assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals while newly acquired Jamison added 17 points and 12 rebounds. Delonte ended up with 15, Andy added 14 points and 10 rebounds and MO had 10 helpers. It seemed everyone had a big night, even Leon Powe looked strong in the paint.

Playing without a true center the Cavaliers had to play small. JJ HIckson played a very solid game as it was his first career start as a center and he played bigger than all 6 foot 9 inches of him. The Cavaliers played fast and use their athleticism and quickness get the best of the Knicks. Also with such a small lineup the Cavs out-rebounded the Knicks by a wide margin of 60-31 playing as if they had no worries of no big man in the lineup.

This pretty much tells the whole league that the Cavaliers can play any style of basketball. They can play small, big, fast, slow and have the height to match and mismatches any team can bring (Orlando, LA, Dallas). MIke Brown might just find out small equals a BIG success.



  1. Hi Jacob,
    Thank you for visiting my blog site. I would first like to say I have absolutely no interest in the NBA, that being said, I do have a 6 yr old son who sometimes wants to sound cool at school, his other friends talk about football and basketball and soccer sometimes and he doesn’t really know anything about any of them. So I think maybe I will read your blog for his sake. Then I can tell him stuff about games and things. He can in turn sound really educated in sports and I won’t have to listen to him pretend he saw certain games the night before and then get embarrassed when the other boys let him know they know he didn’t. So keep up the Good work. Do you think maybe you can blog about other sports and teams to. You can say no of course but I was just asking. Take care

  2. Thanks for your kind feedback. My Dad actually lives in Cincy.

    I’ll be sure to check out your posts often.
