On throwback night – honoring the 1988-89 Cavaliers – the Cavs dressed up like members of an 80s hairband for the pregame intros, for some reason. Zydrunas Ilgauskas, looking more like Marilyn Manson, entered the game in the first quarter, and set the all-time mark for games played as a Cavalier. Congrats to Big Z, 14 points 6 rebounds on the night.
No Cavaliers scored more than 14, 7 got into double figures, and the defense held the Suns to 90 points. Great effort all around. Now back to the pictures. LeBron looks kinda scary.
Andy looked like he needed an undershirt.
Mo Williams looked kinda like he could have been an 80s rocker.
Parker looked smooth, despite the wearing women’s sunglasses. He shot it well again tonight too, 10 points on 4 of 7 shooting.
Shaq, while disappointing in the pregame picture (jersey and shark teeth?) did not disappoint in the actual game. He completely dominated the Suns in the early going, forced them out of their man to man, and it was a free-for-all from the perimeter from there, shooting over a Phoenix zone that would have made Jim Boeheim physically ill.
Coby Karl did not get in, but made one helluva an appearance in the pregame, as you can see.
Boobie looks more like Bobby Brown, and played well tonight. Nice ‘high hand-off’ to LBJ in the 3rd.
Cavs move to 13-5.
