Shorthanded and Sick? No Problem

Cavs last night--coming off a disastrous loss in Chicago Thursday (which I was unlucky enough to watch in person)--playing without Z and Delonte, and with Ben Wallace and (supposedly) LeBron fighting illness looked like a sure thing to get their first home loss of the night against New Orleans, one of the best teams in the West.

But it turns out that the team, in both on-court performance and coaching strategy, were amazing. A mixture of Lebron playing point guard, then center, frustrated the Hornets beyond belief. And it's kinda hard for me to believe LeBron is sick--check out 1:14 of the game highlights.

Now the road trip...
