Unbelievable! Cavaliers 102 Heat 90

The Cavaliers with only 15 wins are having a disappointing season, no doubt.

But they’ve had their moments, beating star-studded teams in the Lakers, Celtics and Knicks.
Now, they’ve beaten the one team everybody said could not be beaten by anybody; the Miami Heat with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade.
James, the former local hero-turned enemy, was making his second return to Cleveland since leaving as a free agent last summer.
The Cavs almost blew a 23-point lead, as the Cavs took down the mighty Heat, 102-90.
J.J. Hickson scored 21 points and Anthony Parker had 20 points for the Cavs who got revenge on the Heat and James who embarrassed them 118-90 on December 2, the first time James returned to Cleveland.
James had a nice game but nothing great, 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds. He said after the game that his former team deserves to have a winning team.
The sellout crowd of 20,562 received a scare when the Heat came back from 23-points down to tie it at 83 on Mike Bibby’s seventh three-point goal of the game with 7:03 left. But the Heat went on scoreless for 4:24 and the Cavs took advantage going on a 12-0 run to put the game away.
Cavs shooting guard Anthony Parker took the public address microphone after the game and told the crowd, ” You deserve this win.”
The loss snapped the Heat’s five-game winning streak.

Jim O’Brien fired as Pacers coach

The Indiana Pacers fired Jim O’Brien after the team failed to maintain a tremendous start to the season by losing seven of its last eight games.

Team president Larry Bird said that he was upset that O’Brien refused to give more playing time to the Pacers younger players. The former Celtics legend said that rookie Paul George deserved to play and that Tyler Hansbrough should’ve been playing more earlier in the season.

In 3 1/2 seasons, Indiana went 121-169 under O’Brien and were 17-27 this season.

Assistant Frank Vogel will be the interim the rest of the season.
