The Cleveland Cavaliers are on a two game winning streak after knocking off the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. The play of the night, and the one that is GIF worthy was Dion Waiters’ blow by dunk as the Grizzlies set up in their half court defense.
Waiters shows off why he might be the most athletic Cavalier as his man can’t keep with him in 2 steps and Marc Gasol, defensive player of the year, and Zach Randolph can’t get over quick enough to respond with any great support. The dunk pretty much sealed the game for the Cavs as they are 2-0 since firing Chris Grant. The reported talking to from interim GM David Griffin seems to be getting through as the effort has seemingly increased as noted by a couple Twitter followers tonight:
@JaredKMueller I don't think it's the result that matters, it's the difference in play/effort/attitude

@JaredKMueller A little of both I believe. Just good to see them playing hard and having fun again.

The team needs to get the fans on their side again. Wins will certainly do this but how they play the game will help no matter the results. Too many times this year Cavalier fans have seen pouting children on the floor instead of grown man stepping up when things get difficult. The last two nights have been men.
Love the dunk? or Just like it? How are you feeling about the resurgence over these two games against playoff caliber opponents?
