But when healthy, Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has been a spark plug for the team, averaging 32.5 points in elimination games, all four of which Cleveland has won. They have the experience, they know what it takes to win it all and, most of all, they'll never ever hand it to you on a silver platter. Immediately after Cleveland won the franchise's first title previous year, Jefferson announced his retirement, a decision he changed just a few weeks later.

We have three matches at home and one away, so we have a great chance of qualifying".

Durant absorbed much criticism for his move to Oakland but appeared to have found his stride amid the team philosophy and free ball movement of the Warriors. Whether it's his lightning quick dribble, supreme confidence that doesn't seem to waver or ability to score from nearly anywhere on the court, Kyrie Irving seems to be at his best when things look the bleakest for the Cleveland Cavaliers .

PLAY OF THE GAME: Schwarz's homer was his second of the day. The Gators, on the other hand, went with Dyson until the top of the eighth inning, when they turned to Faedo to close out the game. That buildup ended abruptly, though, as the ever unsafe Aiello popped out to end the inning, and the stretch was on. In the end, Faedo's stuff destroyed Wake's hitters, and the Gators are marching off to Omaha.
