In Case You Didn’t Know, The Cavs Are The Real Deal! Ending Their Six-Game Trip With a W in OKC

The Cleveland Cavaliers six-game Western Conference road trip ended Saturday night versus the Oklahoma Thunder with a 107-102 win.

The Cavs overcame an 18-point deficit, down 74-56 in the third quarter.  But went on to outscore OKC 51-28 for the remainder of the game for the victory.

The Cavs end the road trip with a 5-1 record over those six games with wins against the Portland Trailblazers, Sacramento Kings, Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cleveland has improved their record to 26-18. The team is still in 6th place in the Eastern Conference but only three games behind the number one seeded Chicago Bulls.

Darius Garland recorded one of the most impressive games of his young career versus the Thunder, scoring 27 points on 11-20 shooting while dishing out an impressive 18 assists (a career-high).

Garland has averaged an impressive 19.5 points and 10.2 assists per game over this road trip.

The Cavs also had significant contributions from Evan Mobley with 20 points and Jarrett Allen with 13 points and 13 boards.

Not only are the Cavs showing they are the real deal, but Darius Garland is continuing to make an excellent argument for a spot on the All-Star Team.  In addition, coach J.B. Bickerstaff is making a compelling argument for Coach of The Year this season.  No one expected the Cavs to be performing as impressively as they have been so far.

What do you think?  Is Garland an All-Star?  Should J. B. Bickerstaff be in consideration for Coach Of The Year?  What is the ceiling for the Cavs season?  Let us know your thoughts.
