Live Thread: Cavs vs Heat (Hopefully)

The last time I recapped the a game against the Heat I predicted the Cavs would come out with a win. I suppose I was a bit naive to think this team could compete against any team that was actually trying hard. Cleveland ended up losing that game 118-94. Then, five days later, the Cavs faced off against the Heat again. I thought to myself, “maybe this time the Cavs…

From Distance: Think Outside the Algorithm

four point play…. 1. Poor Victor Oladipo and his torn quad tendon just inadvertently made it even tougher for a team from the Western Conference to win the championship. Though we all know the Warriors are the heavy favorites, there is a high likelihood that every round in the Western Conference Playoffs will be a bloodbath. Depending on seeding match-ups, the Warriors trip to win the Finals could feature obstacles…

Recap: Celtics 123, Cavs 103 (Or, The 21 Turnovers Killed Them, Not Scary Terry)

It’s rare that covering the Cavs is a treat these days. To help make the games I must watch less painful, I’ve been making sure to pick up a great six pack and some take out. Today was no different. I grabbed some Columbus Brewing Insane Wanderer Volume III, which is a top notch hop forward IPA with a bitter taste that comes on slowly and lingers. It’s also 7.4%….

Live Thread: Cavs @ Celtics

Can this Cavs team lose any worse? That’s a legit question at this point. Despite the Bulls being just as bad as the Wine & Gold going into Monday night, the Cavs lost by 16 to them and gave them their 11th win of the season. That event firmly shoved the Cavs into last place in the entire league. The Cavs were without Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance Jr., but…

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

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…

Live Thread: Cavs vs. Bulls (#MLKDay)

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…

Not a Recap: Denver 124, Cleveland 102 (or, Winter March to Zion)

Forgive us, Cavs fans. The dregs of January are here, and unexpected commitments forced us to miss the live thread. Personally, I picked the absolute worst weekend to travel to the higher latitudes. It’s about -15 wind chill where I’m at in Michigan. The Cavaliers also suffered from the January chills, as they were dismantled by the red hot Nuggets in the first half, getting outscored 70-46 before Cleveland outscored…

Recap: Jazz 115, Cavs 99 (or, That Was Much Worse Than It Looked On Paper)

The Cleveland Cavaliers went into Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz at an even bigger disadvantage than they’ve had most of the season. Missing their top three big men in Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love, and Larry Nance Jr., the Cavs were lacking size in a major way. This led to matchups like Ante Zizic starting against Rudy Gobert and Cedi Osman having to guard Derrick Favors. That’s to…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Jazz

  The Cleveland Cavaliers’ brutal January run continues tonight at they visit the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. Despite losing several players to injuries, the Jazz have been playing extremely well lately, winning five games in a row and eight of their last ten. They’ve pulled into a tie for the seventh seed in the Western Conference, and with a fairly easy schedule the rest of the way, are…

Recap: Blazers 129, Cavs 112 (or, Subtly Nurked)

With the Cavs coming off a long winning streak of one, and the Blazers suffering through an interminable losing streak of two, something was bound to break. Let’s get to it. 1st Quarter: The Cavaliers opened the contest with a starting lineup of Tristan Thompson, Cedi Osman, Rodney Hood, Alec Burks and Collin Sexton. As is their custom, the Cavs’ first play fed Rodney Hood the rock off of Pick…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Blazers (#RipCity)

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…

Take A Look At These Guys

Things are looking rough for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Having just snapped a twelve-game losing streak and sporting the worst record in the NBA, the Cavs rate near the bottom of the league in assists as well three-pointers attempted and made. A simple zone defense is beyond their ability to overcome. Meanwhile on defense, they’re well on their way to being the worst defensive team in NBA history by points allowed per…
