2018-12-06

According to the score, the Warriors blew the Cavs out by 24 points. The game was close though, I swear. The Cavs finished the first-half on a 19-5 run hitting five 3s to be up six. The third quarter didn’t go as planned though, as the Warriors outscored the Cavs 37-22 behind 15 Kevin Durant points. By the time the fourth rolled around, Cleveland was done for and the Warriors…

Live Thread: Warriors @ Cavs

2018-12-05

The Warriors return to face the Cavs for the first time since time sweeping them in the 2018 Finals. A lot has changed. The Cavs are without LeBron James. Kevin Love has missed most of the season due to injuries. They probably won’t make the playoffs. And, the Warriors are no longer the clear cut favorites to win it all. The league has beefed up, especially in the West where…

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

2018-11-28

  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…

The Wood Shop: Deny, Deny, Deny

2018-11-19

Collin Sexton has looked better since being slotted into the starting lineup. He’s putting up 18.8 points and shooting 70% from deep. He’s able to get buckets and appears to be trying on defense,even if it’s not showing up in the results. Statistically, according to NBA.com, anyone who has him guarding them is shooting 7.6% better than their average. Keeping in theme with my last Wood Shop, I’m going to…

2018-11-15

The Cavs came out lifeless to the Wizards tonight in a loss. On first look the 119-95 score looks a lot worse than it is. The Cavs were tired after a great win against Charlotte and it showed. They got sloppy with the ball turning it over 24 times giving 29 easy points to the Wizards, who ran the floor every chance they got. Aside from the turnovers, the game…

The Cavs finally grabbed a second win last night against the Hornets, a team that previously blew them out. Today, they face off against a struggling Washington Wizards team who are just 4-9 this season and facing even more turmoil than the Cavs, as the general news around their organization ranges from the players disliking each other to full on hating each other. The Wine and Gold have a chance…

Recap: Orlando 102, Cleveland 100 (The Vets Showed Up and The Refs Backed Off)

2018-11-05

The Cavs fought back tonight only to lose to an Evan Fournier last second shot. After being down 11 at halftime, Cleveland held the Magic to just 12 points in the third while scoring 32 themselves behind what seemed like 8,000 Tristan Thompson screens. Cleveland entered the fourth with a nine point lead and all the momentum in the world. A twenty point swing will do that. For most of…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Magic

2018-11-05

The Cavs need a bounce bag win after the drubbing Charlotte handed them and news that the vets think Collin Sexton doesn’t know how to play and that the front office backed out of a handshake deal to trade Kyle Korver if LeBron James left over the summer. Thankfully, the Magic are on a back to back, although they did get the win against the Spurs on Sunday, and are only…

The Wood Shop: Nance, Nance, Revolution

2018-10-30

The Cavs are facing some turmoil. On Sunday morning, the front office canned Tyronn Lue. The rumored reason revolved around Lue preferring to play veteran guys like Kyle Korver over younger players with unknown upside. This team is only going to get more difficult to watch as interim Coach Larry Drew plays the young guys. I’m watching this team no matter the record, so I’d prefer not to fall into…

In 2003, the great deceased American Rap-Rock singer of Lincoln Park, Chester Bennington, sang in a chorus, “I tried so hard and got so far/but in the end, it doesn’t even matter/ I had to fall, to lose it all/ but in the end, it doesn’t even matter.” I’m bringing up this song for a variety of reasons. For one, most people know this song and have secretly enjoyed it,…
