Cavaliers beat the Nets for the third time in a row

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets in a close game but ultimately decided in the Cavaliers’ favor. The Nets were clinging to a nine-point lead heading into the game’s final period, but they saw it slip away right up to the game’s last few minutes.

Despite this, the Nets had a four-point lead with less than 30 seconds remaining, owing to the determined play of Spencer Dinwiddie, who was attempting to provide Mikal Bridges with the greatest possible backup.

Dinwiddie and Bridges contributed 25 points to the final tally for the Nets, with Bridges finishing with 32 points.

However, the night belonged to the Cavaliers.

Donovan Mitchell, who finished with 31 points, came up with a big basket and a steal for the Cavaliers when they needed it most, giving them a chance to tie the game. Everything started to go wrong for the Nets when the Cavaliers were ahead by one point, and Mitchell had one more free throw to shoot.

Isaac Okoro eventually got his hands on the ball after Mitchell missed the second of two free throws, recovered the rebound, and then cut the putback attempt he took. Okoro took advantage of a large opening in the corner to sink the game-winning three-point shot for Brooklyn with only 0.7 seconds remaining in regulation.

The conclusion of the game between the Cavaliers and the Nets was so crazy that it defies description; it simply needs to be seen again:

Donovan Mitchell has been the team’s leading scorer during the entire season. Isaac Okoro may have been the hero in Cleveland’s victory over Brooklyn, but Donovan Mitchell was the scoring leader. Mikal Bridges finished with a game-high 32 points, but the Cavaliers’ Mitchell led the scoring with 31 points.

With his first career triple-double against the Hornets, Brandon Ingram showed he is back in top form for the BI. Ingram led the Pelicans to their third consecutive victory, scoring 30 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and dishing out ten assists during the blowout victory.

Jonas Valanciunas, Ingram’s teammate, also had a huge night for New Orleans, scoring 20 points and grabbing 19 rebounds in the contest.

Markelle Fultz, who has been rocking big-time playmaking for the Magic as of late, most notably with this masterpiece of a no-look pass, has been scoring 10 points and dishing out eight assists.

In the meantime, Kawhi Leonard put up Kawhi Leonard numbers against the Thunder, as evidenced by the following stat line:

Thirty-two points, six rebounds, six assists, and four steals are part of this player’s stat line.
