[WATCH] Jordan Clarkson blows kisses to Sixers fans
The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t had much to cheer about this season, but Jordan Clarkson gave Cavs fans something to cheer about on Friday. The guard put the finishing touches on a nine-point victory against the vaunted Philadelphia 76ers. Clarkson added insult to injury after scoring a late dagger when he started blowing kisses to a silent Philly crowd.

Clarkson finished the night with 19 points on 15 shots. He provided the spark that the Cavaliers needed off the bench. The starting unit did the majority of the heavy lifting. Rodney Hood led the way with 25 points while Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman added 23 and 20 points respectively.
Not many people expected Clarkson and the Cavs to upend the Sixers. After all, folks were debating whether or not Duke could beat Cleveland just last week. This should put that debate to rest for good. It won’t, but it should.
The idea that Duke would take down the Cavs is absolutely ridiculous and Cleveland’s victory over Philly, one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, is enough evidence to put this myth to bed for good.
The Cavaliers may end up with one of Duke’s fabulous freshman. Despite their victory over the Sixers, the Cavs are sure to be near the top of the draft lottery. Whether it’s Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, or Cameron Reddish, the Cavs have a good chance to draft one of the Duke freshmen who some folks believe would beat Cleveland.
