Meanwhile, the Cavs Donovan Mitchell put on a clinic in the NBA All-Star Game. He scored 40 points and added 10 assists. Mitchell aided Team Giannis, giving Team Lebron their first loss under Lebron as GM, 184-175. The 40 points were the most for a Cavs player in the All-Star game. In a game where defense is optional until the fourth quarter, Mitchell looked extremely comfortable taking and making shots from long range, as he hit 8 three pointers.

The game was fun and exciting as Boston’s Jayson Tatum scored a game record 55 for Team Giannis. Former Cavs guard Kyrie Irving scored 32 and handed out a game-high 15 assist for Team Lebron. Lebron himself, scored 13 before exiting with a hand injury.
Overall, the weekend was fun and littered with current Cavs players and former Cavs. But now, both the Cavs and Charge set their sights on the second half of the season. Both teams have a chance to really make some noise in their respective leagues. With All-Star performances like we saw this weekend, where our AllS-tars shined bright, there is reason to believe the sky is the limit!
