Post-Game Grades: San Antonio Spurs at Cleveland Cavaliers
By Jay Desai
The San Antonio Spurs took down LeBron James once again, this time defeating his new look Cleveland Cavaliers 92-90.
It was a tight, back and forth affair, especially in the final minutes where neither team took a lead greater than three in the final 7:34.
The Spurs were able to edge out the Cavaliers though thanks to a turnover by LeBron James in Cleveland’s final possession. The Cavs could have tied the game or taken the lead in that final possession making the loss even more painful for Cleveland fans.
The turnover by James was just one of many struggles for the King. LeBron finished the game with only 15 points, a surprisingly low number given that James was averaging 29.8 over the Cavs’ previous five.
Thankfully, some of the other Cleveland players picked up the slack, the most notable of them being Anderson Varejao who finished with a 23 point, 11 rebound double-double.
For the Spurs, the offense attack was led by Boris Diaw and Tim Duncan who finished with 19 points a piece.
Now that the game is over, we have post-game grades for key Spurs players in the San Antonio Cleveland game!
