Cleveland Cavaliers flex muscle against Atlanta Hawks, 127-105, snapping home futility streak while showing frontcourt vision
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Nearly one week ago, hours after the Cleveland Cavaliers stunned the NBA by adding two-time All-Star Andre Drummond at the trade deadline, one jovial player texted cleveland.com with an authoritative statement.

After dropping their 12th straight home contest on Sunday – and in historic fashion – the Wine & Gold got back into the win column in their final game before the All-Star Break, thumping the Hawks, 127-105, on Wednesday night at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.
The Cavaliers were solid on both ends of the floor and in the paint, their three big men all tallied double-doubles, and the second unit – led by Tristan Thompson – was dominant. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
