Crazy Night In Cleveland

On a night where the Cleveland Cavaliers were the favorite by a 12 point spread against the Detroit Pistons and an easy night for the Cavaliers was anything but that.

On a unforgettable night at the Q in downtown Cleveland it started out with a crowd over 20,000 people wearing the free give-away Cavalier snuggies to set a record of the most people to wear a snuggie at one time.The crow also got a hot shooting Pistons in the first quarter, who out scored the Cav’s 31-22 in the first. The hot shooting continued for the Piston’s in the second as the Cav’s found themselves down 21 at one point in the second half. After the 8 minute mark in the second quarter the Cavalier’s turned up the defense and allowed the Piston’s to score on one more possesion to find themselve’s within striking distance at a score of 55-46 at the Half.

The third quarter was the story of the night. After a timeout Rodney Stuckey walked over to Jonas Jerebko to give some advice and soon he started feeling dizzy. Shortly, he was on the floor and the medical staff had to attend. After a 20 minute delay and a stretcher the game resumed but the sadium was shocked at what just happened.

After that it seemed like the Piston’s were completely shell shocked and looked lost on the court. LeBron drained back to back 3 pointer’s as he closed the gape to 2 point’s heading into the 4th quarter. In the fourth it was all Cavalier’s as Jamison jump started them by draining a 3 and making a tough jumper that put the Cavalier’s ahead for the first time in the game. The Cavalier’s ended up out-scoring the Piston’s 54-37 in the second half as the Cav’s won by a final of 99-92.

LeBron ended the game with 40 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assistsm along with another strong performance from the newest Cavalier with 17 points and 4 rebounds. The Wild Thing also came off the bench and added 16 points and 10 rebounds along with Delonte West with 12 points off the bench.

As the game ended there were no celebration’s as the heavy heart’s showed that basketball came second. LeBron called the team to center court with the Piston’s and did a quick pray for Stuckey and wished him the best and to his family as well.

Thankfully Stuckey has been reported that he is alright and is staying the night at the Cleveland Clinic (ESPN). “He is stable and that is good news,” Pistons coach John Kuester said. “I think he is going to be OK.”

Tonight showed why basketball is just a game and that no matter who won the only thing that mattered tonight was if Rodney Stuckey would be ok.
