PREVIOUSLY, THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS...beat the Hawks 95-84 last night in Atlanta. The win moved Cleveland past the Hawks and into first place in John Hollinger's mechanized power rankings. It was Cleveland's fifth straight win (and tenth in eleven games), four of which have come on the road. Cleveland have not lost at home since November 5th.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

Is there any chance of a re-do a-la Hawks vs. Shaq's Miami Heat?
