Exploring New York

Delly sees the sights as Cavs continue good form

Hello everybody.

It was a great week on the court for the Cleveland Cavaliers winning three out of our four games.

We started off with a good win at home against the Toronto Raptors, 102-100.

We played a great first half, but they continued to battle and made it close.

We eventually held on to win after a couple of nervous moments.

The next night we played in Detroit against the Pistons.

We struggled to get a rhythm for most of the game and at one stage we were down by 16 points in the last quarter.

We kept chipping away at the lead and eventually got it down to one point with three seconds to go, our ball.

Luol Deng inbounded the ball to Dion Waiters, who took one dribble and hit a buzzer-beating jump shot to win the game for us.

The coaches and players on the bench were excited, running on to the court to celebrate.

It was definitely one of the best wins of the season so far, 97-96.

We didn't play well in Brooklyn against the Nets.

After struggling through the first three quarters we got the margin down to five points in the last quarter, but could not get any closer.

Paul Pierce was on fire in the first quarter with 17 points.

The final score was a 97-108 loss.

On Sunday we were back at home for an afternoon game against the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers.

This was one of the best 48-minute efforts of the year.

This was one of the best 48-minute efforts of the year.  We got off to a great start and didn't let up all game.

We played with a great tempo and moved the ball well.  This resulted in a 90-76 victory. 

We had a day off on Thursday in New York after playing back-to-back games. 

It was my first chance to do some sight seeing in the “Big Apple”.

I went up the iconic Empire State Building, which had an unbelievable view of the whole city.

It is something I would definitely recommend.

Times Square (pictured) was another place I got to check out. One of my old assistant coaches from Saint Mary’s is now the head coach at Columbia University, which is in Manhattan.

It was great to catch up with his family and have him show me around the campus, which was established all the way back in 1754!

We still have hopes for the playoffs, but we have to almost win all of our remaining seven games and have a few results go our way.

We’ll keep working hard and see what happens. Thanks for the support everyone. 

Have a great week!
