Podcap: Nuggets 126, Cavs 113 (or, The Defense Rests)

The Cavs had their whole squad (minus the L8Show) back together against the Denver Nuggets last night, and were able to reassemble the starting lineup that won the Championship last year for the first time in months. Unfortunately, just because they were together again, doesn’t mean they were all necessarily on the same page… especially defensively. Maybe it was the four days they spent at sea level in L.A., taking…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Nuggets (#NoJoke)

It’s almost comical when you look at the stats Denver Nuggets big man, Nikola Jokic, has been putting up this season… especially over the past six weeks. “The Joker” as the Serbian has been dubbed, is averaging 16.2 ppg, 9.4 rpg and 4.7 apg for the season. However, it’s been 19.8/11.4/6.1 for the month of March. He’s also rattled off five triple doubles since the beginning of February, after logging…

The Point-Fourward: Entertaining Losers

Four points I’m thinking about the NBA… What players do we want to watch in the playoffs? With most teams having about 12 games remaining to fulfill their tanking dreams, accidentally make the bracket, or properly position themselves to ultimately lose (ok, other than that singular team that grabs the trophy), the final couple weeks of the season will go a long way to deciding our May Netflix schedule. 1….

Third Quarter Progress Reports

We’ve just passed the third quarter mark of the 2016-17 NBA season, yet we still haven’t truly seen the Cleveland Cavaliers in action. While J.R. Smith has returned to action, Kyle Korver has yet to play with Smith due to an injury of his own. Deron Williams played with Kevin Love for the first time last Thursday, and Andrew Bogut was a Cavalier so briefly that Tyronn Lue never coached…

Links to the Present: 3/21 Cavs Focused on End Goal

What the Cavs are like in Los Angeles | Cleveland Plain Dealer The Cavs are a fun bunch.  As a team who doesn’t practice much, the Cavs used their time in LA for business (for some as Richard Jefferson will tell you) and pleasure (remember, LeBron has a house in LA).

Recap: Cavs 125, Lakers 120 (or, City of Stars)

If you come to La La Land… you expect to see stars. After all, it’s a city that’s full of them. It’s even one of the few stops in the NBA where the names you see in the stands are as big as those playing the games on the court. Look around and you’ll find them… Denzel, Jack, even Tristan’s girlfriend Khloe. They were all there last night at the…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Lakers (#TheBusiness)

The Cavs are in Los Angeles for a second consecutive night, as they go about their business of getting through the stretch run of the regular season in taking on the Lakers. Apparently, the League called the team out yesterday to give them the business for damaging their business by resting stars LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love against the Clippers. Reportedly though, the Cavs feel like it’s none…

Not A Recap: Clippers 108, (Not) Cavs 78 (or, Not A Surprise)

For me, the best news about last night’s game between the Cavs and the Clippers at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, was that unforeseen circumstances prevented me from shelling out a couple hundred bucks to watch it in person. Unfortunately, the some 21,000 other fans in attendance weren’t so lucky. The highly anticipated Saturday night match up between LeBron James and his big three against CP3 and his big…

Podcap: Cleveland 91, Jazz 83 (or, This isn’t even my final form)

Today Mitch Suchan and Elijah Kim discuss flashes of swish, locked in Lebron, how to use Shump, playoff strategy and more. Last night’s game marked Kevin Love’s return, in which he scored 10 points and grabbed nine boards in 19 minutes. The surprisingly potent Gobert Jazz team refused to be ignored. Cleveland had a 36-22 lead early in the second quarter, but in regular fashion, started to let off the gas when comfortable….
