Nowadays, it seems like it is always a big deal if the Celtics lose. The Cavs handed the Celtics only their second loss of the season last night in a 109-104 win over Boston. Lebron James took over in the overtime period scoring 11 points for a total of 38 points in the game.
It was a team effort because Lebron took over in overtime but Drew Gooden kept them in it in the 3rd and 4th quarters. He ended up with a season high 24 points and 13 rebounds. The Cavs big 3 in James, Gooden and Zydrunas Ilgauskas outscored Bostons big 3 of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce 77-64.
