What Had Happened Was: 12/26/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Basketball fans asked for and received a loaded NBA slate on Christmas Day. The rematch between the reigning Eastern and Western Conference champs did not disappoint, as the Cleveland Cavaliers prevailed over the Golden State Warriors again. While only a regular-season matchup, the Cavs once again had to make a furious comeback, this time to the tune of a 109-108 victory. That now makes it four-straight wins for Cleveland over the Warriors.
