The Sacramento Kings beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night, 116-112 in overtime, and after the game they unleashed an unusually aggressive attack on social media.
It was the sixth loss in eight games for the suddenly struggling Cavaliers. LeBron James finished with a triple-double – 24 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists – two days after calling out the Cavaliers’ front office for not having enough playmakers on the roster.
The win ended a four-game losing streak for the Kings against the Cavs. After the game, the official Twitter account of the Kings went all in on the Cavs, reimagining Cleveland’s logo as an L (for loss) and playing on LeBron saying he won the 2015-16 championship for “the Land,” a nickname for Cleveland.
