JNS.org – A fairytale ending to Jewish basketball coach David Blatt’s first season in the National Basketball Association (NBA) was not meant to be, as the Blatt-led Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night dropped Game 6 of the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, 105-97, to lose the best-of-seven series 4-2.

Blatt, who just last year coached Israel’s Maccabi Tel Aviv franchise to a European basketball championship, failed to finish a second straight hoops season on top. But after the Cavaliers began the NBA season 19-20, Blatt engineered a significant turnaround that saw the team end the regular season 53-29 and make its second-ever NBA Finals. In the photo below, taken by Bob Jacob of the Cleveland Jewish News, Blatt addresses the media after Game 6.
