Live Thread: Cavs @ Nets (#NoSleep)

Featured Video Play Icon

The last time the Cavaliers faced the Brooklyn Nets, Tyronn Lue was still the coach… JR Smith and Kyle Korver were still on the team, and Kevin Love was still playing. In fact, that night in late October was the last time Love was seen in anything other than a walking boot. Flash forward six weeks, and the radical changes to this Cavs team are enough to keep anyone associated…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Raptors


It’s a tall order for the Cavs, tonight. Cleveland looks to bounce back from a moribund loss to Boston while the Raptors are coming off an overtime victory against the defending NBA champion Warriors. Yeah, the Raps look the best team in the Association right now, with Kawhi gunning for his first NBA MVP, Kyle Lowry leading all players in assists, and Paskal Siakam locking down most improved player award….


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…


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…


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….


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…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Lakers (Prophecies and Revelations)


None of my fallacious predictions bother me, but I am haunted by the articles I never wrote. In late November 2016, I hemmed and hawed on writing about LeBron James, Phil Jackson, and The King’s indigence over the Zen Master’s “posse” comments. My premise was to be that LeBron’s issue with Phil’s diction represented a larger problem: that LeBron’s and the left of center NBA’s quibbling over word choice echoed…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Pistons


Here we go again. After four days off for Cleveland, and a whoppung fuve days off for Detroit, two rested squads square off at Little Ceaser’s Arena. For the Cavs, Larry is still starting at the four and looks to go against Blake Griffin, while TT will take on Drummond. On the injury front, the Cavs are missing Hill, Dekker, and Love while Detroit is missing only Luke Kennard. Lets…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Wizards


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…


Live Thread: Cavs vs. Hornets (#ItStings)


The pungent stench on the Cavs’ season hasn’t yet reached Sex Panther levels… but it certainly seems to be trending in that general direction. After a close loss to their fellow Lottery scratchers, the Chicago Bulls, the Cavs return home winners of just one of their first dozen games. To add stinging injury to insult, Kyle Korver (foot/possible trade) will now join Kevin Love (toe surgery), George Hill (right shoulder…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Bulls


Tonight’s Saturday night match-up is a real doozy. The 1-10 Cavaliers face off against fellow cellar dwellers, the 3-9 Chicago Bulls. Neither one of these teams is good to begin with and both feature some significant injuries. For the Cavs, they are still without All-Star power forward Kevin Love, George Hill, Cedi Osman, and Sam Dekker. They had to sign the former Grizzley Andrew Harrison just to have some more…
