Twin towers lead the way in unimpressive victory: Cavaliers 99, Nets 89

The two-win New Jersey Nets came into the Q tonight, and the Cavaliers played like they had won the game before they had even stepped on the floor. Turnovers, frequent fouling, and a general lack of focus allowed the Nets to hang around for the entire game. In the end, the Cavalier centers and a Devin Harris ejection proved to be enough to extend the Cavalier win streak to three, but the Cavaliers have a lot to look at after this one.

One in, one out: Daniel Gibson made his return after missing the past two games with a sprained right pinky, but it was Delonte West who kept the Cavaliers at less than full strength. West had "a couple of bad days" according to Brian Windhorst, and so he misses yet another game in the truly hour-by-hour saga that is the 2009 Delonte West.
