ThreadCap: All Star Sunday (#TorchPass)

2019-02-17

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)

2019-02-16

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…

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…

It’s been an up and down season for Cavs fans, but it’s always exciting to see progress from young players… even in a losing effort. Down a couple more hombres, with Rodney Hood gone in a trade to Portland and Cedi Osman out with an ankle sprain, the Cavaliers rode their Young Bull for the first three quarters of their contest against the Boston Celtics. For a change, Collin Sexton…

It’s Tuesday again… time to #StayWoke and hope that second day of the week luck kicks in once more for the Cavs as they host the Boston Celtics tonight at the Q. The one guy who won’t #StayWoke though, is the same dude who popularized the saying a while back, Kyrie Irving. It’s curious that Uncle Drew chose not to make this trip to Cleveland, the second avoidance of his…

Well that was almost too close to call… but, the Cavs prevailed on yet another Tuesday night, running their win streak to two games for only the second time this season. The wine & gold dominated the Wall-less Wizards for just over 40 minutes before nearly choking away a 25 point lead in the final eight minutes. Cedi Osman and Jordan Clarkson were the two-headed scoring monster for the Cavs,…

It’s that day again Cavs fans… time to see if the magic of Tuesday can return for the wine & gold. After a stumble on the last one against the Pelicans (despite a furious comeback), what better team for the Cavs to conjure up another Tuesday win against than the visiting Wizards? After all, Cleveland had one of their more convincing victories the last time they saw Washington on December…

Recap: Bulls 104, Cavs 88 (or, Skunked)

2019-01-21

It was a forgettable MLK Day for the Cavaliers, as they continued to get skunked by the Bulls this season (now 0-3). Losing by double digits is nothing new for this team… but losing by double digits to the second worst team in the League? Yikes. Cleveland definitely won the tank battle, as they showed just how much separates them from even the other cellar-dwellers in the NBA, while handing…

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said a multitude of amazingly inspirational and poignant things in his all too brief time on this planet. Words that brought hope and stirred belief in the hearts and minds of a nation. One such quotation (above) could apply to everyone, even at their lowest points. So, on this day of remembrance for MLK, these sage words of advice seem particularly relevant to the two…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Blazers (#RipCity)

2019-01-16

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…

2019-01-14

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…
