okay, I'll repharse the question. If this same thing happened during a tie game or even while they were leading would you be impressed? Lakers won by 40+ this year against the Pistons and compiled a huge lead in a very short period of time. No one was that impressed because it was against the PISTONS. This happened against the Cavs, who lost two of their best scoring options and were lead by CJ Miles, Thompson, and Ellington. Do you realize why I have a hard time being impressed that they were able not only score but shut down these players? Their top three scorers average for the season combines around 21 PPG. That's less than both Wade and Lebron alone. So yeah, this isn't the much IMPRESSIVE thing of the season thus far when it comes against a team that is missing three of it's best players that was ALREADY one of the worst teams in the league with those three players.
