Play-by-play announcer speaks with forward Tristan Thompson following the Cavaliers 96-90 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
For the second time in three days, the Cavaliers defied the odds.
After dropping six straight games, the Wine and Gold hit the road to take on a pair of the West’s heavy hitters – including the top team in the Conference. On Wednesday night, Cleveland stunned the Nuggets. On Friday, they did themselves one better.
Facing an Oklahoma City team that had won 14 straight home games and had beaten Cleveland by an average of 25 points per contest last season, it looked like they might have to settle for a split.
Opening statement: “Obviously that was a pretty good win, to beat a team this good in their building. Our guys came and competed. It was just like the last game against Denver. It was a good effort for 48 minutes and that’s all I’ve been asking of them, to do that, and we’ve gotten a couple of very good wins on the road.”
While the Wine and Gold are on the road, the Big East Tournament in New York City is raging on. One of the stars from a memorable recent tourney at the Garden is Cavs forward Samardo Samuels.
Samuels starred under legendary coach Rick Pitino at an equally legendary hoops university, Louisville.
Louisville came into the 2009 Tournament with a 16-2 record in the Big East – 31-6 overall. It was the first year that all 16 teams were invited to the Garden and Samuels’ Cardinals didn’t play until the semifinal round on Thursday.
