Sixers Take Out Cavs, 86-79: Postgame Reaction Thread

Jrue Holiday's big night propelled the Sixers past the Cavaliers. - Howard Smith, US Presswire

Jrue Holiday wins the battle of young point guards. The Sixers win the game at large.

Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner combined on one of their best games of the season to help the Sixers get by Cleveland in a game that was close most of the way, but never really all that suspenseful.

Holiday got the better of Kyrie Irving in a big way, and while he scored a pedestrian 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting, he played conspicuously suffocating defense on Cleveland's top scorer and added nine assists (against only two turnovers, a welcome change from recent games). Turner grabbed six rebounds and matched Holiday's nine assists (a career high for ET) and led all scorers with 19 points.

The only bad news is the potential loss of Nick Young. His Swagness posted 13 points on 5-of-6 from the floor in only 16 minutes, but was removed from the game after a hard fall late in the third quarter. He was reported to be experiencing dizziness and did not return.

More details later, but this is a reaction thread, so go react already.
