Jeff Teague Hits Game-Winner Against Cavaliers

The game-winning shot was a fitting end to Jeff Teague’s night, one that saw him set a career-high with 34 points. However, none were more important than the final shot that gave the Hawks a 127-125 double overtime victory over the upstart Cleveland Cavaliers.

As you can see in the video, Teague was not given a chance to see whether or not his shot fell as he was mobbed by his teammates after the buzzer sounded. It was nice to see a humble Teague defer attention and give his teammates some credit after the shot.

“A lot of guys made some plays,” he said. “I think we’re growing as a team, so that’s a positive step.”

For the Cavaliers this loss stings in particular, as the team is now lost 6 of its last 7 after building a surprising 3-game win streak. Kyrie Irving, who dropped 40 for the second time this season, was particularly upset.

“He made a tough play,” Irving said. “It’s definitely a heartbreaker.”

Yes, he did Kyrie. Yes he did.
