NBA Eve of Thanksgiving: Cavaliers VS Trailblazers And Warriors VS Lakers; NBA Record Broken
Who would have thought that the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors would be playing at the same night? Nope, they are not playing against each other and this is not the finals yet but coincidentally, both of last year's finalist were playing on the same day but on different sides of the coast.
The Cavaliers faced the Portland Trailblazers at the Quicken Loans Arena wherein the Cavs power forward, Kevin Love broke another NBA Record.
The charming center of the Cavs was able to score 34 points during the first quarter of the game which greatly help the team in an intense play on the foreign court. The Cavs lead the first half of the game and although they Trailblazers tried to cope up, the Cavs did not give them enough room to make a lot of points.
The game ended in 137-125 in favor of the Cavs. Love explained how he was able to gain momentum during the first quarter. As per BBC, Love said he made his first couple shots and it was on from there.
On the other side of the coast, the Warriors were also busy making a lot of points in their game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Their game ended in 149-106 in which much of the points from the Warriors came from Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant combining for 85 points.
According to Washington Post, Thompson said that it would be cool to belong in a team that can score 150 points in one game. "I don't think a team I've ever been on has scored 150 points in a game, so I thought that would be pretty cool. But I can settle for 149. That's a pretty amazing night on the offensive end," he said.
Both the Cavaliers and the Warriors are ahead of the league and it is exciting to see them play against each other once more.
