The Cleveland Cavaliers have not had much to cheer about or get excited about during the 2013-2014 season. Other than the play of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, the moments of glory have been few and far between.
Cleveland came up with a gritty overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night. It came thanks in large part to the play of Anderson Varejao, who pounded away with Memphis’s bigs throughout the game. But in overtime, with things still hanging in the balance, it was Waiters who came through with the play to seal the game for the home team.
It is not often that you see the lane open up like that against the Grizzlies, but Marc Gasol got caught with his back turned and Waiters took advantage with the huge dunk. The Cavaliers went on to win 91-83.
