Here’s the The Good, The Bad and The Ugly for LeBron and the Cavs last night.
The Good is LeBron scored a season-high 41 (10 in the 4th) and the Cavs outscored the Celtics 38-20 in the 4th quarter. The Bad is it took a huge 4th quarter from the Cavs to beat the Celtics by 1 point. The Ugly is the Cavs allowed the Celtics to score 42 points in the 3rd quarter!
“We gave up a 40-point quarter and that’s unacceptable if we want to grow,” James said, “but we showed growth in the fourth quarter.”
Also falling under The Good was Kevin Love’s double double of 12 & 15 (but his 2 for 10 shooting was ugly) and Kyrie Irving scoring 27 and dishing out 5 assists.
