2019-02-08

Portis came off the bench in the first and started the game going 6-6 from the floor for 16 points. After just one quarter, the Wizards led 41-27. Bobby led the Wizards in scoring for the evening with 30 on 12-18 shooting. He was 4-6 from deep. His heroics continued in the final frame, as…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Wizards

2019-02-08

The Cavs are in the District of Columbia tonight to take on the Wizards for their first game since the trade deadline. Cleveland currently leads the season series 2-1. A win tonight would make the Cavs 12-43. Or, the team that has 25% of their wins against the Wizards. I’m ninety percent sure that the Wizards are the only team the Cavs even have a chance to win a year…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Celtics

2019-01-23

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: Jazz 117, Cavs 91 (Or, When a Five Point Lead Feels Like Fifty)

2019-01-05

The Cavs have been a hard watch lately. They often times tease by looking mildly competent early in the game. Tonight was no different. They led by one after the first half. They held the Jazz to just five made 3s and 46.2% from the floor. Cleveland didn’t look amazing, but they looked like they might make the game close, as the Jazz seemed a little bit off. This was…

The Jazz are in town tonight for a fun reunion and to play some basketball. Rodney Hood and Alec Burks are both former Jazz players, and old Cavalier sharpshooter Kyle Korver is lighting the la flama blanca in Salt Lake City these days. The Jazz have struggled mightily this season. They were supposed to be one of the top tier teams in the west, but they are currently three games…

Recap: Hornets 110, Cavs 99 (Or, Getting Sandbagged)

2018-12-20

Kemba Walker and the Hornets came out and sandbagged the Cavs tonight. Whether intentional or not, it worked. Cleveland controlled the game for the first 19 minutes and nine seconds. No more, no less. Charlotte then went on to outscore the Cavs by 16 in the second half. After scoring 41 in the first half, they scored 41 in the third quarter alone. During the first stretch of the game,…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Hornets (Bring Out The Bug Spray)

2018-12-19

The Cavs are coming off a well earned win against the Pacers last night to take on the Hornets in the Queen City this evening. The Hornets are 5-5 in their last ten and lost to the Lakers by 28 on Saturday. They’re no joke though, especially in the East. They’re currently the seventh seed. On top of that, they have a true superstar in Kemba Walker. Walker is having…

Recap: Cavs 113, Knicks 106 (Winning Plays)

2018-12-13

This season has made Cavs fans change how they watch the game. Nothing is as it seems when the team you root for is just battling to land in the bottom of the standings in hopes of landing a high draft pick. Someone can put up forty points and it means nothing. Even a 25 point game can mean nothing. Someone on the team has to score, and you have…

Live Thread: Knicks @ Cavs

2018-12-12

The Cavs played a rough one two nights ago against the Bucks losing by 16. The Bucks didn’t even have their number one player, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Knicks are a good team for the Cavs to try and get a bounce back win against. New York currently sits above the Cavs with two more wins, but they certainly aren’t better. They are riding the submarine to the bottom of picks…

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…

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…
