The first 43 minutes of an NBA game is so different from the final 5 minutes and there is no better evidence of this well known fact than tonight’s game against Cleveland. With 4 minutes and 58 seconds left, the Hornets and Cavs were tied up at 83. Over the next 3 minutes and 11 seconds, Kyrie went on a 11-2 run and that was the ballgame. Notice that I didn’t say the Cavs went on a run- KYRIE went on a run as he scored all 11 and had 20 points total in the 4th quarter as the Cavs rolled 105-100.
