Honestly, if ESPN was debating whether or not Bruce Bowen should be suspended for accidentally kneeing Steve Nash in the sack, then there's no way Mikki Moore survives the flagrant foul he laid on Sasha Pavlovic tonight.
Moore was steaming after a collision between him and Pavs in Game 2, and started jawing about it right away. Then in Game 3 he tried to pick a fight with Anderson Varejao under the basket. Moore's attitude did not cool off with the Game 3 victory, because he took a cheap shot at Pavlovic tonight and drew a flagrant foul. The NBA's gotta step in and sit him down for a game. If they don't, I'd love to see Scot Pollard get two minutes of game time and send the little bitch to the Cleveland Clinic Wednesday night. He's a cheap-shot artist and he deserves to sit down for it.
But on the bright side, Moore's antics woke up the Cavs. We went on an 11-0 run immediately after it, and you could just see LeBron's game elevate. Pavlovic is LeBron's main guy. He loves Pavs, and when Moore tried to hurt him, James took it personally.
With the Cavs courageous win, they snap the Nets 10-game home winning streak and they bring themselves one win away from their third-ever Conference Finals appearance.
So now we get to win this series at home in 5 on Wednesday night. Tipoff is at 8pm.
Incidentally, the Cavaliers have not won a playoff series on their home court since 1993, when they beat.....New Jersey at home in Game 5. That sounds like fun. Let's do it again.
