Recap: Jazz 115, Cavs 99 (or, That Was Much Worse Than It Looked On Paper)

The Cleveland Cavaliers went into Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz at an even bigger disadvantage than they’ve had most of the season. Missing their top three big men in Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love, and Larry Nance Jr., the Cavs were lacking size in a major way. This led to matchups like Ante Zizic starting against Rudy Gobert and Cedi Osman having to guard Derrick Favors. That’s to…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Jazz

  The Cleveland Cavaliers’ brutal January run continues tonight at they visit the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. Despite losing several players to injuries, the Jazz have been playing extremely well lately, winning five games in a row and eight of their last ten. They’ve pulled into a tie for the seventh seed in the Western Conference, and with a fairly easy schedule the rest of the way, are…

Recap: Blazers 129, Cavs 112 (or, Subtly Nurked)

With the Cavs coming off a long winning streak of one, and the Blazers suffering through an interminable losing streak of two, something was bound to break. Let’s get to it. 1st Quarter: The Cavaliers opened the contest with a starting lineup of Tristan Thompson, Cedi Osman, Rodney Hood, Alec Burks and Collin Sexton. As is their custom, the Cavs’ first play fed Rodney Hood the rock off of Pick…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Blazers (#RipCity)

Cleveland has had a few nicknames (some more derogatory than others) over the years, but the most common one, The Land, seemed popularized over the last four years of Cavalier dominance. It even appeared on the alternate (and forgettable) grey, black and yellow uniforms of last year’s squad. Meanwhile, Portland, where the Cavs visit the Trailblazers tonight, has also been known by many names. The City of Roses, Stumptown, Beervana…

Take A Look At These Guys

Things are looking rough for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Having just snapped a twelve-game losing streak and sporting the worst record in the NBA, the Cavs rate near the bottom of the league in assists as well three-pointers attempted and made. A simple zone defense is beyond their ability to overcome. Meanwhile on defense, they’re well on their way to being the worst defensive team in NBA history by points allowed per…

Recap: Cavs 101, Lakers 95 (or, Turkish Delight)

How sweet was that? For those of who stayed up and tuned in, you were treated to a late night snack. A delicious confection of poetic justice. A sugar coated victory if ever there was one. That’s right, despite my decidedly bitter game thread introduction, the oft-beleaguered Cavaliers served up a candied assortment of just desserts for everyone… from the Lakers and their fans to the doubters and curmudgeons with…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Lakers (#LeGone)

LeBron James has been missing in action for his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, for three weeks now. During his 10 game absence, LA has gone just 3-7. Meanwhile, LeBron has been missing from his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, for six months now. Since his departure, the Cavs have gone just 8-35. The point being that, without LeBron’s availability… LeBron’s teams tend to struggle. None of this is…

Not A Live Thread: Cavs vs Rockets (Sorry guys)

Okay, I admit that this is far too late to be a legitimate Live Thread. That is entirely my fault. This one already isn’t going well. At the start of the fourth the Cavs are down an unfortunate 36 points while the Rockets have already managed to score 117. I’ll see you all in tomorrow’s recap. Still, Go Cavs!

From Distance: The Spurs and Thunder Break Brains

four point play…. 1. Every week, before sitting down to write, I do a last minute NBA news check to see if anything interesting has happened the night before. The answer this week? Yep! When I clicked over to League Pass, I saw a final score of 154-147 in favor of the San Antonio Spurs over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Excuse me, what?! I closed my writing tab and watched the…

Podcap: Pelicans 140, Cavs 124 (or, Too Many Blows)

The Cavs had a promising start to the start of their road trip in New Orleans, hitting all eight of their three point attempts as they threatened to run the Pelicans off the floor in the first quarter. It was almost a carbon copy of what the Pacers did the night before in Cleveland to the Cavs. Unfortunately, the tired legs, lack of front court depth, relentless running attack of…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Pelicans

After getting throttled by 35 Friday, Cleveland faces Anthony Davis’ Pelicans again, this time in frosty confines of the Smoothie King center. Let’s hope Cleveland puts up a better fight, but without Larry Nance, that could be tough. Look Ante Zizic and Jalen Jones to get some time against the Brow tonight, and Tristan Thompson to try like hell to stay out of foul trouble. Hopefully the road trip will…
