I'm going to preface this article with the admission that I was less than intrigued by this game due to the fact of my heart being ripped out by the Buckeyes, but I will do my best.

You had a feeling it was coming, it was necessary, but you didn't really want it in this particular game. The San Antonio Spurs played much like they did on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. The difference, you ask? They finished this game, pressured LeBron James, and made their free throws for their 43rd win of the season. Meanwhile, the Cavs shot well and got great contributions from their frontcourt, but their backcourt struggled and they missed their free throws, leading to loss number 16. It ends the Cavs' eight game win streak, but the Lakers' loss in Oklahoma City decreases the Cavalier magic number to homecourt throughout to just six.
