Live Thread: Cavs vs. Hawks

Seven teams remain without a win in this fledgling NBA season, and with both the Hawks and Cavs at 0-2, something’s got to give. Cleveland makes its home debut after giving up big second quarter runs to the Raptors and T-Wolves. The Hawks come in having given up 257 points to the Knicks and Grizzlies, with an average loss margin of 16.5. Leading the Hawks have been Taurean Waller-Prince who…


Recap: Minnesota 131, Cleveland 123 (Cedi’s you’s a balla’, but…)

Froggy Fresh and Moneymaker Mike here. Yeah, we’re bringing it back to 2010 for Froggy’s ode to Derrick Rose (still together!), Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, the Bulls, and most especially we’re “talkin’ bout that man, Jimmy Butler.” Now the Cav’s all ’bout to get slaughtered Cause Jimmy Butler is your father Preach, Froggy. After a nice opening seven minutes that saw the Cavs up 13-21, the Wolves outscored the Cavs 56-28…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Timberwolves

The Cavaliers travel to Kevin Love’s old stomping grounds tonight to face the disgruntled Jimmy Butler and his pack of timid youths. After a rough first game for Love, I’m sure he will want to bounce back and have a big game against his former team. The Wolves, meanwhile, lost their first game to the Spurs in a tight 112-108 contest. The Cavs face a tough first two opponents in…


From Distance: Lasting First Impressions

four point play…. 1. With Game 1 of the 2018-2019 NBA season in the books, it is time to make some sweeping conclusions. The Cavs will not make the Playoffs. -assertion confidence  70% This is somewhat of a 180 for me. I’m not sold and the 30% could grow considerably if Koby Altman is able to pull off a deal that would send Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith and Jordan Clarkson…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Raptors (#WeAreBack)

If you haven’t read Nate’s ode to our Aluminum Anniversary… make sure you check it out here at halftime. Meanwhile… are you ready for the 2018-19 NBA regular season?! Because, it’s finally here! The future is now for your Cleveland Cavaliers. Time to find out if Kevin Love can become a Terminator… if Collin Sexton can be the next John Connor to save the franchise from a bleak existence… or…


The Aluminum Anniversary

Well folks, it’s hard to believe, but we’re about to tip off our 10th season of Cavs: the Blog, tonight. This blog was started way back in 2008-2009 when John Krolik spun up this lowly site for the ESPN TrueHoop network. The oldest post on this site was January 7, 2009, but I believe that a form of it may have existed before we went to WordPress. Regardless, it’s our…

Podcast 183: Overs, Unders, Hoaxes and Blunders

Will the Cavs really win fewer than 31 games this year? Will the Lakers win more than 48? Will the Warriors continue their boring domination? Will the Indiana Pacers go Hoosier and shock the world? Who will win the end of season awards? And, most importantly… will Tom have to become a vigilante to stop the spread of a new fruity drug scourge from claiming victims in Southern Ohio? All…


Looking At The Final Roster Spot

Some thoughts on the Cavaliers’ open roster spot in light of  the team’s recent moves… A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Cavaliers’ various training camp invitees, what they brought to the table, and their chances of making the team. It seemed like Isaiah Taylor was the favorite for the fifteenth and final roster spot until word spread about the stress fracture he was dealing with. After that, it…


Preseason Recap: Pistons 129, Cavs 110 (or, Waxed)

Dan Gilbert once famously offered the Cavaliers coaching job to Tom Izzo. Maybe he should have tried Wax Tom Izzo instead… On second thought, nah… too creepy. After seeing multiple cut aways to Austin Carr and others posing at the strangest wax museum in sports (which exists inside the Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing) during the Cavs’ preseason finale against the Pistons, I’ve…


Preseason Live Thread: Cavs @ Pistons (in Lansing)

The Cavs travel to Lansing tonight. Sorry, the Cavs travel to East Lansing (which any Spartan will tell you is not Lansing), to play the Pistons in the Jack Breslin Student Events Center on the campus of Dan Gilbert’s Alma Mater, Michigan State University. The Cavs will be missing Larry Nance, who sprained his ankle and Isiah Taylor who has a stress fracture. The Pistons will start their regular season guys…
