Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 starters missing for the Atlanta Hawks and they still win. The Hawks go into Cleveland and win 114-100. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the way for the Hawks with 22 points.
Cleveland is playing for home court advantage in the Eastern Conference, and they still lay an egg!
When you don’t defend consistently in the NBA, you will have bad games like this. The Cavaliers are going to have to clean up their defense if they want to win another title. You thought after the Boston victory that the Cavaliers had turned the corner.
I guess we all thought wrong!
