This one was so much fun. Cleveland came out strong, built a 21 point lead in the second, withstood a furious run by Washington that cut the lead to one in the early fourth, then got dominant again by riding Collin Sexton and Tristan Thompson for a wire to wire win.
Thompson was the best player on the floor Friday, using his ambidextrous hook to put up a 21pt/12reb/3ast/3stl/2blk statline. Kev followed him with 16 & 12 night as he pumpfaked his way to 10-13 shooting at the free throw line. Cedi led everyone with +22, and Darius Garland played his best game with a 16 point six assist effort.
