Darius Garland. The spark that ignited the powder. Too quick for Kyle Lowry and the Warmth protection basically, the Cavs bandleader rolled out his basketball and the remainder adopted. A giant match in “solely” 28 minutes of play in the long run.

Cedi Osman. He bent the match when he warmed up on the finish of the third quarter. 12 bonus rebounds and a +/- from elsewhere, at +39 for Cleveland when the Turk was on the ground!

✅⛔️Bam Adebayo. His affect diminished an excessive amount of over the course of the match however the Florida pivot nonetheless didn’t deserve it.
