Playoff Recap: Cleveland 111, Boston 102 (Or, The Better Bullies)


The Cavs’ defense showed up once again tonight, and the series is now tied at 2-2. They held Boston to just 41.2% from the field and were able to use a 16 point lead built in the first quarter to come out on top with a nine point win. LeBron James led the way for the Cavs with 44 points, five rebounds, and three assists. It was his sixth game…

I joined Evil Genius and Nate Smith to talk about the Cavs convincing win against the Raptors. Tom Pestak hopped in midway through too. We discussed the win, OG Anunoby, the match-up issues for Toronto, Chewbacca Ibaka, Star Wars, the 76ers, Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson‘s lack of NBA ability, TT’s awesome screens, LeBron’s unstoppable skyball turnaround, and much more. Get the quick recap below and then listen to us…


Playoff Live Thread: Cavs @ Raptors, Game 2 (Do They Blow It Up?)


The Cavs return to the Air Canada Center for game 2 against the Raptors, and the stakes are actually high, just not for the Wine & Gold. The Raptors have faced their demise against the Cavs in the past two playoffs. Last year Cleveland beat them in just four games after taking six games to do the same in the 2016 playoffs. If the Cavs can take game two tonight,…


Recap: Cavs 104, Pacers 100 (Or, The Slow Burn)


After 12 minutes of play, the Cavs led by six points. After 16 minutes of play, they led by 16 points. Then the typical Cavalier bleeding started. After 24 minutes, they led by 10. After 29 minutes, they led by five. After 36 minutes, the Wine & Gold no longer had a lead. And, after 42 minutes they were down by one. The Cavs have been treating their leads like…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Pacers, Game 4


The Cavs are back in Indiana again tonight. After giving up an 17 point lead in the 2nd Half of game 3, the Cavs are down 2-1 to the Pacers. This game isn’t a must win, but having to play a must win game in Indiana would be a poor position to be in for game five. One has to hope the Cavs can right their play. They are making…


The Wood Shop: Not Trap Lords, Bojan the Working Man, IT is Right, and the Befuddling Bron


I’ve had about 63 hours to stew about the Cavs loss to the Pacers on Sunday afternoon. I was drinking during the game so my early thoughts about the loss revolved around the Wine & Gold needing to make shots. They did go 8-34 from deep after all. That’s not really like them; they may not have another game in the entire playoffs where they score just 80 points. Heck,…


Live Thread: Knicks @ Cavs


If you’re still watching the Cavs this far into the season, you’ve done it. You’ve survived one of the most bizarre seasons in recent memory. I’m not going to get too deep into it, but just keep in mind that the team traded Kyrie Irving for Isaiah Thomas, Brooklyn’s first round pick this season, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic. Zizic is the only player still on the team.  And, remember this….


Recap: Cavs 112, Raptors 106 (Or, Same Old Story)


The Cavs took care of the Raptors tonight for the second time in 13 days. At this point, the Raptors must be wondering what they did to deserve LeBron James being in the Eastern Conference. It doesn’t seem like they are ever going to figure out how to get past the Cavs. Typically, LeBron James is the one who is ending the Raptors’ dreams. Tonight was different though. Don’t get…


Live Thread: Raptors @ Cavs


The Raptors are in Cleveland for their final game against the Cavs this season. The series is tied at 1-1 after the Cavs made a 15 point comeback during the second half of their previous meeting. Since then the Cavs are 5-1. Toronto is 2-2. The Cavs sit in third in the East with Philly looming. The 76ers have now won two games without their star, Joel Embiid, who is…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Blazers


The Cavs are one day off a win against league bottom Phoenix . However, they may not be able to build any momentum from that win in Portland. Larry Nance Jr. is out for the evening with a hamstring issue he suffered in the first half against the Suns. That means Ante Zizic will get the starting nod tonight. And, Jeff Green will be the backup according to Jeff Green…


Recap: 76ers 108, Cavs 97 (Or, No Shame In Losing)


The 76ers came into the Q and played like a good NBA team with legitimate superstars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. That’s what they are at this point in The Process. They have a 2.6 net rating, which is good for ninth in the league. And, they have the fourth ranked defense in the league.  The Cavs shot just 41.4% from the floor on them and went 9-32 from…
