Not A Recap: Celtics 128, Cavs 95 (or, Nephewed)

Uncle Drew has been in Collin Sexton’s shoes. Kyrie Irving was once a promising rookie getting nightly lessons from the NBA’s best point guards. He understands being the hope of a re-building franchise in the aftermath of a LeBron James departure. He struggled through a 21 win inaugural season (we’ll see if Sexton and this iteration of the Cavs get anywhere close to that), while shouldering the dreams and expectations…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Celtics (#NewNumber2)

This is gonna be quick, because I’m not at home, but wanted to get a thread up for you diehards on the last Friday night in November. Collin Sexton and the Cavs make their first trip to Boston in the regular season tonight, and the new #2 gets to face off against the old #2 (who is now #11). Kyrie would like his fans to believe (via his new Nike…


From Distance: Actual Progress

four point play…. 1. The last two weeks of Cavaliers’ basketball has certainly been far more enjoyable than the previous two. With Larry Drew at the helm, the Cavs have slowly worked out some rotation questions and, gasp, even a blurry identity. While Ty Lue simply babbled about pushing pace, Drew’s team has been for more selective in pushing the ball make or miss. The players aren’t blindly running into…


Recap: Thunder 100, Cavs 83 (Or, Pain in the Paint)

The Cavs kept it close for a half before the Thunder clamped down on defense and owned the paint in the third quarter to outscore them 26-15. Cleveland finished the night shooting just 39.3% from the field, while the Thunder shot 47.7% andĀ  controlled the paint scoring 56 points there compared to Cleveland’s 32. The Thunder were a pain in the paint. Cedi Osman provided the Cavs with a steady…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Thunder/ Update, Kyle Korver Traded To Utah

  The Cavs are away tonight to take on the Thunder. Cleveland played the Thunder tough last time battling back from a 16 point half-time deficit only to lose. OKC was without Russell Westbrook that night, and Dennis Schroeder torched the arena for 28 points. This game Russ is back, but Cavs coach Tyronn Lue isn’t. How much that matters, I don’t know. The Thunder are coming off a tough…

Podcap: Wolves 102, Cavs 95 (or, Off The Rails)

I’m not sure the degree that Tom, Nate and I actually captured the outcome of this Cavalier setback tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves, as we spent a large chunk of time debating the semantics of what transpired in the Browns game Sunday and the subsequent shade thrown by Baker Mayfield on his former coach today. Tom and I were on diametrically opposed sides of the argument, while Nate was content…


Live Thread: Cavs vs. Timberwolves

The Wolves roam into town tonight having won five of their last seven since the Jimmy Butler trade. Now there are only a couple of winning teams in that win column, but Cleveland can’t take them lightly. The Wolves are at full health, and Townes, especially, has been killing it lately. Karl-Anthony is fresh off posting a 35/22/6 and +17 night against the Bulls, so TT and Larry are going…


Live Thread: Rockets at Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers are fresh off a big win against the Philadelphia 76ers for only their third victory of the season. The Cavs will now go up against another tough match-up in the Houston Rockets and will be doing so on the second night of a back to back. The last time Cleveland played on the second night of a back to back, things got, well, let’s just say ugly….


Recap: Cavs 121, Sixers 112 (or, Process THAT!)

Okay… the Cavaliers are now undefeated on Tuesdays… and Black Friday. I know. I’ve been so wrong… but it feels so right. Seems the more I doubt the Cavs and bury their chances for victory in each Live Thread… the harder they play to win, forcing me to eat crow in the subsequent Recap. To that I say… “pass the salt!” If we’re being real though, it’s one thing to…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Sixers (#BlackFriday)

For the first Black Friday in a while, the Cleveland Cavaliers find themselves as sellers rather than buyers. Of course, it’s still early days, but this is typically the time of year that teams have at least an inkling of how their season will play out. The Cavs, maybe against their front office wishes… or maybe not, it appears will retain their first round pick next summer, as they seem…


Saying Goodbye

I’ll never forget the night the Cleveland Cavaliers traded for JR Smith. It was January 5, 2015, and my wife and I had taken the kids to my parents’ house for dinner and to watch the Cavs play the Philadelphia 76ers. The Wine & Gold and been struggling while LeBron James rested some nagging injuries, and despite the fact that Kyrie Irving was also out for that night’s game, I…
