End Of Regular Season Progress Reports


As the regular season comes to an end, now seems like a good time for some Cleveland Cavaliers Progress Reports. It’s been a roller coaster of a regular season with injuries, locker room drama, and a major trade that completely reshaped the roster. Now, as the playoffs begin, Cavs: The Blog will take a look at each member of the roster and assign them a letter grade that stands for…


Recap: Cavs 107, Pelicans 102 (or, The Best Player On The Planet Proves It Again)


The New Orleans Pelicans came to town last night to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that featured two of the true superstars in the NBA. LeBron James and Anthony Davis will likely finish second and third in this year’s MVP voting, in some order. Both men have carried their teams through injury-plagued seasons to remain in the thick of the playoff hunt, but only one of them…


Live Thread: Pelicans @ Cavs


After a 2-1 road trip that saw the Cavaliers’ injury problems continue, the Wine & Gold return home to Quicken Loans Arena tonight to take on the New Orleans Pelicans in a matchup that features two of the biggest stars in the NBA. While James Harden will almost definitely win the NBA MVP Award this season, the Pelican’s Anthony Davis and the Cavaliers’ own LeBron James are like to finish…


What Do We Know About The Cleveland Cavaliers?


Today, the Cleveland Cavaliers sit in a place where even the most pessimistic Cavs fan (or optimistic fan of another team) would never have put them, sitting in just barely the third seed of the Eastern Conference with only 16 games left to play. The only thing that has been consistent with this team is the chaos. Whether it was the slow start to the season, winning 18 of 19…


Recap: Cavs 112, Grizzlies 89 (Or, Off And Running!)


One night after a loss at home against the Washington Wizards in which they seemingly couldn’t buy an outside shot in the second half, the Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies came into the game on a seven-game losing streak, and were 0-for-February. The Cavs had shown much improved energy since revamping their roster at the trade deadline, but a brand new rotation, combined…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Grizzlies


After last night’s loss to the Wizards at home, the honeymoon may be over for the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers, but the bloom is hardly off the rose. Sure, the defense still needs some fixing, someone besides LeBron James needs to attack the basket, and those open threes need to fall, but it’s still a marked improvement over where the team had been prior to the trades. It’s one thing to…


A Pivotal Moment


I’ve been a fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers for as long as I can remember. While the Indians were easily the dominant team of my childhood (my family made a lot of trips to Old Municipal, which was about four miles from my house), I have a lot of fond memories of the Cavalier teams of Price, Nance, Daugherty, and Williams. These were great teams that had the misfortune of…


Live Thread: Heat @ Cavs


To say things aren’t going well right now for the Cleveland Cavaliers may be the understatement of 2018 so far. The team is just 3-7 in their last ten games, the defense is the worst in the NBA, the team chemistry is just as bad, and they just lost Kevin Love, their second-best player, for two months to a broken hand. Now, the Miami Heat, just a half game behind…


Recap: Celtics 102, Cavs 88 (or, old men get tired)


Fresh off a fairly impressive win over the Portland Trailblazers that ended a three-game losing streak, the Cleveland Cavaliers headed to Boston to take on the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics for their second game in two nights. These two teams have engaged in a rather heated (and one-sided) rivalry over the past few seasons, and the trade of Kyrie Irving to Boston for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the…


A Closer Look At J.R. Smith


  Fresh off an 0-3 road trip that LeBron James labeled as “trash”, questions that have bubbled below the surface for a while have understandably begun to pop up for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Should Tristan Thompson play over Channing Frye? How will the return of Isaiah Thomas affect the matchup between the two teams? Has the bench really improved when it matters most? One question that has been in the…


A Mea Culpa


We live in a world where more data is available for public consumption than ever before. With a few clicks of a button, we can find out a tremendous amount of information on any subject we choose. Nowhere is that more true than in sports, where we can seemingly learn everything we need to know about any player we want to,  and subsequently make quick decisions on how we feel…


First Quarter Progress Reports


As Christmas (and the unofficial start of the season for some fans) approaches, it’s time for Cavs: The Blog’s first quarter progress reports. After a slow start to the season, the Cavaliers have won 13 straight games, and currently sit in second place in the Eastern Conference behind the Boston Celtics. As in past seasons, our progress reports take a look at each player on the Cavaliers’ roster, as well…
