Cleveland Cavaliers Obliterates The Boston Celtics, 121-99 – On The Day of Paul Pierce’s Jersey Retirement
The Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James are having fun again – and winning too.
According to Bleacher Report, the revamped Cavaliers passed their test of fire against current leading East Conference team, Boston Celtics.
The LeBron-led squad trounced the Celtics 121-99 road win, in a game that also hosted Paul Pierce jersey retirement ceremony. Although it’s just one game, many took notice about the difference in the vibe of the team.
Not only did the guys from Cleveland won, they won in a convincing fashion as the team led by 12 points at halftime, shooting 53.5 percent from the field, with 6 of 12 from the three point line.
Currently, LeBron’s team is on a three-game winning streak, which sort of explains why The King and his squad is in a rather good mood. However, one can’t shake the feeling that a big source of this refreshed sense of optimism is the brand new players, which integrated smoothly with the team.
In fact, when new Cavs player Jordan Clarkson made a three point shot in transition, LeBron himself went wild in celebration, pointing happily to his new teammate.
LeBron himself isn’t too shabby himself, as he almost recorded a triple double, with a statline of 24 points, eight rebounds, as well as 10 assists.
All in all, it was a positive game for the Cleveland Cavaliers in all aspect, they controlled the Celtics all throughout four quarters. Currently, the two teams have met three times, with Cleveland winning two of those games.
Unfortunately for Pierce, his end-of-the-game jersey retirement didn’t go as good as it was planned, as he was forced to watch his former team get brutally beaten by LeBron James himself.
