Mo Williams bounces ball off Mike Muscala’s face, Iman Shumpert drains three after catching it (video)

The Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday night in a route no better defined than a wacky play in the game’s fourth quarter.

Hawks troll themselves using Crying Jordan meme after Cavs' barrage
