Cavs Clinch Playoff Berth
Two droughts ended last night at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse when the Cavaliers beat the Rockets 108-91.
First, with the victory, Cleveland clinched an NBA Playoff berth for the first time in five years.
Second, by grabbing that Playoff spot, the Cavs qualified for the postseason for the first time since 1998 without LeBron James on the roster.
With their fourth win in a row, the “Wine and Gold” improved to (48-28) on the year and currently is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with just six games left in the regular season.
The top four teams in each conference get homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Jarret Allen led the Cavs in the win over Houston with 24 points and 14 rebounds. Donovan Mitchell added 22 and Evan Mobely finished with 19.
