ThreadCap: All Star Sunday (#TorchPass)

Kudos to those of you who made it through the NBA All Star Saturday events. To be honest, they put me to sleep (literally, I fell asleep trying to watch them). To recap the action… Jayson Tatum edged out Trae Young in the Skills Competition via a half court heave… former Cav Joe Harris lived up to his “Smokin’ Joe” persona by torching the competition (including Steph Curry) to win…

Live Thread: All Star Saturday (#TheBuzz)

It’s that time of year again… the unofficial halfway (but really almost two-thirds way) point of the NBA season, where the League has a week off to celebrate itself and fuel storylines and buzzy rumors for the remaining stretch run, playoffs and summer. This time around, we find ourselves in Charlotte, North Carolina, (home of the Hornets) to watch the stars come out to compete in feats of skill, shooting…

From Distance: Cedi Bores and Other Things

  four point play…. 1. I was looking forward to praising Cedi Osman’s MVP performance in the Rising Stars Game at All-Star Weekend. I even pushed back the column in order to allot the proper amount of time and enthusiasm for Cedi’s fantastic play. Alas, Cedi was rather terrible, only seriously competing for LVP. Obviously, a Rising Stars Game doesn’t mean anything for Osman’s professional career. The game is even more…

Recap: New Jersey 148, Cleveland 139, 3OT (or, Beautiful Disaster)

Forgive me. I’m not going to be able to do this game justice. Due to scheduling constraints, this triple overtime masterpiece, which was one of the viewing highlights of the Cavs’ season will have to do with an abbreviated recap. This game was a peach: a 63 minute slug fest between two hungry squads that featured plenty of mistakes, but even more bravado, effort, and shotmaking. In the end, despite…

Live Thread: Cavs vs Nets

Cedi’s back! This one should be fun Cavs fans. Sure, they’re still missing TT, but this Cavs squad is almost back to full health. For the Nets, Caris Levert is in his third game back after missing several months with a dislocated foot. K-Love, Cedi, and soon TT… only poor JR sitting at home would make the Cavs complete. Regardless, Cleveland should be fun to watch tonight, and should give…

Podcap: Cavs 107, Knicks 104 (or, Winning the Battle… Losing the War?)

Well, the Cavs effectively shot the Knicks into last place by themselves tonight, rolling out to as much as a 17 point lead against their tanking brethren before nearly sliding back into a late tie. Fortunately, Cleveland had Larry Nance, Jr. leading the charge with his sixth straight double double (including a career high 10 offensive rebounds), and got some terrific support early from a rejuvenated Kevin Love and newly…

Recap: Pacers 105, Cavs 90 (Or, Tired Legs, Tired Shots)

No surprises here, folks. Kevin Love was held out seeing as this was the second night of a back to back. Cedi Osman was still absent. And as you might predict, the Cleveland Cavaliers struggled to put up points against the rolling Indiana Pacers as their defense “held” the Cavs to only 90 points. I say “held” because it wasn’t always particularly stellar defense that prevented Cleveland from scoring. Unfortunately,…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are playing in the notoriously difficult arena (at least for them) Bankers Life Fieldhouse as they face off against the Indiana Pacers. The good news is that the Cavs saw Kevin Love return to the court, if only for six minutes. The bad news? The Pacers seem to be playing just fine in the face of losing Victor Oladipo for the season. Love will presumably still be…

Recap: Wizards 119, Cavs 106 (Or, The Newcomer Gets It Done)

The Wizards ended their three game losing streak behind the efforts of former Chicago Bull Bobby Portis. Portis came off the bench in the first and started the game going 6-6 from the floor for 16 points. After just one quarter, the Wizards led 41-27. Bobby led the Wizards in scoring for the evening with 30 on 12-18 shooting. He was 4-6 from deep. His heroics continued in the final frame, as…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Wizards

The Cavs are in the District of Columbia tonight to take on the Wizards for their first game since the trade deadline. Cleveland currently leads the season series 2-1. A win tonight would make the Cavs 12-43. Or, the team that has 25% of their wins against the Wizards. I’m ninety percent sure that the Wizards are the only team the Cavs even have a chance to win a year…
