I was surprised today to watch the Cleveland Cavaliers lose to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a similar fashion as the Los Angeles Lakers did just a few days ago. Again, the consistent story line was the disparity in the number of offensive rebounds. The Thunder had 16 offensive rebounds (5 from Adams and 4 from Roberson) to the Cavaliers’ 3! To lose on your home floor 148 to 124 must be very disheartening for Lebron and the Cavs fans. People following the NBA are not surprised when the Lakers are the recipients of a blow-out home loss, but not so with the Cavaliers who have “the king” and other respected veteran talent.
As a Lakers fan, I have to admit I enjoyed the Cavs’ loss thoroughly!
