Recap: New Jersey 148, Cleveland 139, 3OT (or, Beautiful Disaster)

Featured Video Play Icon

Forgive me. I’m not going to be able to do this game justice. Due to scheduling constraints, this triple overtime masterpiece, which was one of the viewing highlights of the Cavs’ season will have to do with an abbreviated recap. This game was a peach: a 63 minute slug fest between two hungry squads that featured plenty of mistakes, but even more bravado, effort, and shotmaking. In the end, despite…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Nets


Cedi’s back! This one should be fun Cavs fans. Sure, they’re still missing TT, but this Cavs squad is almost back to full health. For the Nets, Caris Levert is in his third game back after missing several months with a dislocated foot. K-Love, Cedi, and soon TT… only poor JR sitting at home would make the Cavs complete. Regardless, Cleveland should be fun to watch tonight, and should give…


Trade Deadline Madness


What a 24 hours. The Cavs move Alec Burks, Harrison Barnes goes to Sacramento, Stanley Johnson and Thon Maker trade places, Tyler Johnson Goes to Phoenix, Herculoid Wayne Ellington will probably get bought out, LeBron James shows a complete and total lack of self-awareness, and KD makes that seem completely irrelevant by giving one of the more bizarre media availability sessions in recent memory… whew! And that wasn’t even on…


Recap: Cleveland 104, Chicago 101 (the Burks of the Game)


The Cavs took a wild route to their 10th win of the season, surrendering an eight point fourth quarter lead before scoring on a wild offensive rebound and jump hook by Alec Burks to retake the lead with 17 seconds left, before two big stops and two big free throws by the Cavs put a lid on things for the Bulls. Larry Drew wanted this one badly, and played Dellavedova down…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Bulls (The Losing Edge)


Tank Battle Mark IV, Cavs fans. While the Cavs are 0-3 against the Bulls this season, they are only two games ahead of (behind?) the Bulls in the loss column at 9-41 versus 11-38. Amazingly, the Cavs make up a whopping 27% of the Bulls’ win total this year. There’s a lot on the line here. While the odds for the top four picks are essentially even for the bottom…


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…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Pelicans


After getting throttled by 35 Friday, Cleveland faces Anthony Davis’ Pelicans again, this time in frosty confines of the Smoothie King center. Let’s hope Cleveland puts up a better fight, but without Larry Nance, that could be tough. Look Ante Zizic and Jalen Jones to get some time against the Brow tonight, and Tristan Thompson to try like hell to stay out of foul trouble. Hopefully the road trip will…


Recap: New Orleans 133, Cleveland 98 (or, Shades of 2011)


This team is awful, and it’s not the team’s fault. It’s the fault of Dan Gilbert, whose hubris and ego led him to believe that he could coddle James and get away with it for years, believing that the narcissistic superstar would give Cleveland the hometown discount in preferring Mo Williams over Dwyane Wade. When James declined, Gilbert’s ego led him to believe that the team that James (and Danny…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Pelicans


  Well we’ll see how tonight goes. For the Pels, MVP candidate Anthony Davis wl be suiting up which probably spells doom for the Cavs. I’ll let AC sum it up. The Pelicans are led by Anthony Davis, who is having a career year,28 pts, 13 rebs, 2.5 balks — Austin Carr (@MrCavalier34) January 6, 2019 The guy actually balking? Nikola Mirotic, who’s out with an ankle injury. Out for…


Recap: Atlanta 111, Cleveland 108 (or, Vinced & Burked)


This was a fun one, Cavs fans. Cleveland battled back from an 11 point early first quarter deficit to tie the game, only to be done in by missed free throws, bad execution, and an inability to rebound as they were edged out in the final minute by Vince Carter and the Atlanta Hawks. Vinsanity was in the air in Atlanta as the 41 year old Carter turned back the…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Hawks


Winnable game alert: the Cavs are 1-1 versus the Hawks and the Hawks (like the Cavs) are on the second night of a back-to-back. Of course, this Atlanta team now includes one of the NBA’s best sophomores, John Collins, and is 4-1 in their last five. They also play at the NBA’s fastest pace… Hawks are 1 st in NBA in pace 106.07, 3rd in TO'S forced,16.9- 4 bath in…


Recap: Chicago 112, Cleveland 92 (or, Holiday Blues)


The Holiday Blues started at approximately 7:20 PM, December 23rd for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and included a healthy dose of Holiday Orange in the guise of Cleveland’s “City Edition” Tide Pod unis. Those duds can now be officially retired after a 25 point route in the second half to the league worst Chicago Bulls. You read that right. Cleveland led this one by five at the half, and then played…
