Yeah, depends on how many people post the link to the preview at other boards/sites.
Good job by Cavaliers. Before game i didn't think that we can win it, but Z and Boozer crash the boards . Bench players scores only 9-10 points. Good job by first five speciality Boozer-Z-James. We have good % form field, only in last minutes of play they had few misses. Congratulation Cavz. We are closer to the Play-offs !!
I told all my buddy's that for the cavs to win this game Z was to have a real big game.What happens fellas Z steps up to the challenge and whoops the S*** out of them they couldn't handle him. It was dissapointing watching the lead tumble but we got the win and thats all that matters.
Now im looking towards the playoffs and they say we only need 15 more wins to get there so let's pray and hope the other 6'7'8 seeds keep losing so we can get in and make a little bi of noise. Can i get a(PLAYOFFS) we got this i can feel it!!!!!!!!!!
Now let's woop the S*** out of those Hornets (Boo Boo Boo)
It's great to hear from all these international fans. Who knows, maybe when we travel in Europe and Asia people will come up and talk to us when they see us wearing our LeBron jerseys!

James' first tour around the NBA, as has been well-documented, has been filled with fanfare, if not victories, at every stop. Predictably, though, it has waned a bit in recent weeks, as the media hordes have gotten smaller as his newness wears off.
Throw all of that out the window today, when the James hype machine switches back into overdrive as he plays his first game at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks. Not only will James be the biggest headliner to play New York this week not named Alex Rodriguez, but also the whole thing will be on ABC (WEWS, Channel 5 in Northeast Ohio), the Cavaliers' first network appearance since the 1997-98 season.</div>

Another Article on Game
<u>NEW YORK (AFP) - Rookie sensation LeBron James made an impressive Broadway debut, scoring 22 points to help spark Cleveland past New York 92-86 in a National Basketball Association game.
Lithuanian center Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 31 points against a Knicks team that passed on a chance to claim his rights in 1996, but the star of the show was James, whose numbers compared well to the New York debuts of other stars.
"He's a great player," Ilgauskas said. "All of the attention he gets, he deserves it. I am doing my job. Sometimes, I'm able to help and sometimes not."
James had 22 points, five rebounds and three assists compared to Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers having just one point with no rebounds or assists and Minnesota's Kevin Garnett having no points, four rebounds and three assists.</u>continued

Vince Carter is injury and he will be back from 2 to 4 weeks, so maybe he can get into their spot. Maybe Celtics will lose some games without Mike James. I want to see James in Playoffs in matchup with Carter :bigthumbu
Raps and Celts are in a lot of trouble, I am not too sure about both of those clubs making it.
Thanks for the article Karma

Celtics are tanking, after watching their game last night there is no doubt about that.
Leave it to the Cavs to squander a 23 point lead in the 4th. I just commented last week how the Cavs never win a game where it isn't in some doubt with a few minutes remaining, and I was almost certain with 8 to go in this game that they would finally prove me wrong.
If Anderson's 3 would have stayed in the basket, it would have made things a lot more interesting. Cavs had a ton of positive things going up until the last half of the 4th. Even after 3 or 4 Silas timeouts to stop the bleeding, we still didn't respond. A win is a win, but that wasn't a very encouraging 4th.
The last thing we need to do is start getting over confident in our abilities again. We rattled off 7 of 10 and then promptly had a big let down and lost 5 of 6.
Cavs aren't good enough to start taking quarters off, but they definitely have looked 100% better the last week.
I have to give it up to Z. Who said we should trade him? Give me a break...
I had this game on at the start of the 4th, Knicks down 20. Then I fell asleep and kinda woke up with like 40 seconds left and couldn't believe the Knicks had climbed all the way back! Oh wells. The Cavs played good tonight. Good work by Z.
Bright lights, big Z
<div class="quote_poster">Quote:</div><div class="quote_post">Zydrunas Ilgauskas made his presence felt Sunday despite all of the attention on LeBron James in his Madison Square Garden debut.
Ilgauskas doesn't have a signature shoe and he doesn't have his likeness splashed across a building in Manhattan, but he stood tall in leading the Cavaliers to a 92-86 victory over the New York Knicks.
This is the same Ilgauskas who, at times, has been benched during the fourth quarter and was mentioned in trade rumors.
"I'm glad all of that crap is over," Eric Williams said about rumors of Ilgauskas getting traded. "He makes things easier for us. Our jump shots weren't falling, and we went inside to Z and he was putting them down. I'm so happy that trade talk is over. Let us grow together and see what we can do with the team we have."</div>

EWill knows what's up. He knows that Z is a very very important part of the team.
7 foot centers who average 15 pts, 8 rebs and 2 blks are not easy to come by.
