Look: Netizens throw shade at Cavs after blowing 26-point lead to Hawks

It was a historic day from Russell Westbrook, but the NBA witnessed history in the Eastern Conference as well.

After suffering a 114-100 beatdown in Cleveland on Friday (Saturday in Manila), the Cavaliers blew a 26-point lead in the fourth quarter to lose to the Hawks in overtime on Monday, 126-125.

The Hawks, who outscored the Cavs 44-18 in the fourth period, became just the third team in NBA history to come back from a 26-point deficit entering the final quarter and win.

And because people love to hate on the Cavs, the loss didn’t stop netizens on Twitter to make fun of the meltdown.

Will the Cavaliers repeat as champions this year?
