Mo's halfcourt throw, LBJ's 44 roll the Thunder: Cavaliers 102, Thunder 89

With just over four minutes to play, the Cavaliers were up just four points with the ball. A deflection sent the ball past the midcourt line, and the Cavaliers looked certain to suffer a shot clock violation. They needed a miracle heave to at least draw iron, but Mo Williams did better than that. Mo Gotti's 48-foot set shot was as pure as his 23-foot jumpers, and it broke the backs of the young Thunder, who never climbed out of the seven-point hole.

Shaq, no Boobie: Shaquille O'Neal returned without missing a game after getting scratched across the eye by Blazer center Joel Przybilla on Friday night. Daniel Gibson's right pinky, however, was too swollen for him to participate. He was questionable and participated in shootaround, so hopefully we'll see him on Tuesday.
