Americans voted Tuesday to decide their next president choosing between the controversial Donald Trump from the Republican party and Hillary Clinton from the Democratic party and other candidates. However, one upset already happened in battleground Ohio, a crucial location in the US Elections.
The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 110-106 as German point guard Dennis Schroder finished with a career-high 28 points to lead his team to the upset road victory.
NBA on TNT had fun on Twitter of the “upset in Ohio” with their breaking news:

As expected, basketball fans were in panic mode thinking the upset in Ohio was about the US Elections 2016. The good news for them is that it was just an NBA reference but the bad news is that Donald Trump is currently leading the latest early count for the US polls.
Some experts shared their thoughts on Twitter on the latest count. CNN has Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, 136-104 in electoral votes so far with 270 as the magic number to win the US presidency.
Trump can win Florida, Nc, and Ohio BUT as long as Hillary wins either Nevada or New Hampshire she will be okay. #ElectionNight

Going back to basketball, the Hawks also got great production from Kent Bazemore (25 points on 4-of-6 three-pointers), Dwight Howard (7 points, 17 rebounds and 3 blocks) and Paul Millsap (21 points).
The Hawks built a double-digit lead in the third quarter but LeBron James’ team made a comeback late in the game. It was down to three points, 106-103 with 48 seconds left but the Hawks held off Cleveland’s rally.
The Cavs’ loss snapped a six-game undefeated streak to start the 2016-2017 NBA regular season while the Hawks improved to 5-2 for the year.
