Cavs win and it wasn't because of LeBron

The Cleveland Cavaliers have defeated the Detroit Pistons, 98-82 to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in the team's history. Like I said in the title, LeBron James wasn't that big of a factor, at least offensively, he had just 20 points but he had a great defensive game getting 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. It was none other than rookie point guard, Daniel "Boobie" Gibson who carried the Cav's offensively, he scored a very impressive 31 points and he added 6 rebounds and 2 assists, oh and he did all this coming off the bench.

The Cavaliers are going to have their hands full in the Finals because they are matched up against the defensive powerhouse that is the San Antonio Spurs this coming Thursday night for Game one.

To quote Cav's coach, Mike Brown, "you leave him open and it'll be Boobie for three....shoot it Boobie...Shoot it!"

I'll get more in dept tomorrow, but for now I bid you farewell.
