Cavs beat Bobcats 120-118 in OT

If you aren’t one who follows the Cavs closely you may not realize how big an impact Flip Murray has had on the Cleveland Cavaliers since their trade-deadline deal. After getting Murray from the Seattle Supersonics for rarely-used PG Mike Wilkes, Murray has upped his scoring average from 9.9 ppg to 13.5 ppg in his 13 games with the Cavs. Tonight Murray scored 19 on 7-11 shooting and hit a game-tying 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left in regulation.

The play in which Murray hit the 3 saw LeBron James get trapped at the top of the key and throw long pass to Murray in the corner. The assist for James was his 10th of the game marking his 9th career triple-double. LeBron finished with 37 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assist and the game-winner from just inside the 3-point arc in overtime.

While the Cavs have been streaky all season, GM Danny Ferry's move to bring in Ronald "Flip" Murray has already proven to be a great one, and it may mean the difference in the Cavs getting the #4 seed in the playoffs versus maybe a #7 or 8 seed.

It's Sports Time, Ohio!
