#1: Kevin Porter Jr. leads Cavs to fourth quarter comeback vs. Heat

The best moment of the Cavs’ season to this point to me again is their comeback against the Heat in late February. It looked as though the Cavs were going to be blown out by Miami once again, which happened the game before and has on other occasions this season.

The Cavaliers were down by 19 points heading into the fourth, per ESPN, but to change things up, J.B. Bickerstaff, who took over the head coaching reigns post-All-Star break after John Beilein stepped down from that role, went with a Garland-Kevin Porter Jr.-Nance-Love-Thompson lineup.

They willed the Cavs back with stifling defense, and Nance clearly got after Duncan Robinson, who killed Cleveland with 15 points in the first half (all from three-point range), as Nance’s length and ability to get through screens and post him up at the other end was crucial for the Wine and Gold.

The Heat did not have Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro in this game, no, but this was still a heck of a comeback, and the Wine and Gold outscored Miami by 25 combined points in the fourth quarter and overtime, leading to a 125-119 W, as KJG’s Corey Casey alluded to.

What really stuck out was the superb play of Porter, though, who had 30 points on nine-of-18 shooting, and he hit four-of-seven from three-point land.

As Casey also hit on, KPJ had “15 of his 30 in the fourth quarter/overtime, and along with that scoring outburst, Porter had eight rebounds, three assists and three steals, too.”

Moreover, this game, and fourth quarter/overtime stretch, really, showcased Porter’s sky-high potential for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He had it going, and further displayed how good he can be for Cleveland if he keeps progressing as a pick-and-roll creator, and his defensive ability flashed in a big way, too.

Okay so those are my three best moments of the 2019-20 season to this point, of which it’s again unclear if the current season will resume at some point, for the Wine and Gold. What are yours, Cavs fans?
