VIDEO: Cavs/Knicks Gameblog…Cavs win in OT 109-102…streak ends

It’s gotta be getting pretty repetitive doing this obligatory pre-game press conference talk, but the Head Coach has to or he’ll be fined, so Byron Scott did it again today. 

With a smile too I might add. 

Below, Byron’s talking about Joey Graham’s injury (out a couple weeks), Christian Eyenga’s play of late in the D-League, and Orlando’s trade with Phoenix earlier in the day:

In case you wondered if a team on a 10-game losing streak still did all the pyrotechnics and music video intro stuff…yep, still do:

My thoughts on first half, via video blog update:

Mo Williams’ hoop to tie at 93-93 w/ 3.7 seconds in regulation is below. 

Quick note, the place I stood to watch the second half was actually an awesome spot to watch the game when the people in front of me were sitting down.  Bit of a downgrade in location when they were on their feet though, but still I had a pretty good look at Mo’s shot to send it to OT. 

Also, worth mentioning if you didn’t know, the crowd was exceptionally electric down stretch, which is a tremendous showing for a fanbase urging its club to get its first win in 11 tries…I’m sure it helped too. 

Mo’s shot:

The streak ends! Cavs beat Knicks in OT, and Byron Scott talks about it…postgame:

“There isn’t another center in the EC right now, other than maybe Dwight, who’s playing better than Anderson Varejao.” – Byron Scott

Mo Williams – who went for 23 points, 14 assists, 5 rebounds, including converting two at the end of regulation to send it to OT – talks about the game, his role this season as a PG, and Anderson Varejao on Amar’e:

“He [Varejao] showed why he’s a 1st Team All Defensive Player in this league tonight.”  – Mo Williams on Anderson Varejao
