Live Thread: Cavs at Raptors

Sorry about the late post.  The Cavs are missing Mike Miller, the Raps have lost DeMar DeRozan for a few weeks. The Raptors are the second best team in the NBA according to SRS.  The Cavs are ninth.  Cavs lead 18-13 with about four minutes left in the 1st quarter.  This would be a signature win if they could pull it out Let’s TALK


Live Thread: Cavs Vs Bucks

The Bucks come into Cleveland tonight looking to bounce back after a 14 point loss to the Rockets. The Cavs need to continue their three game win streak and display above average defense against this young group. Milwaukee has been a surprise this season defending their way to 10 wins to earn the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference; they are allowing just 98.3 points a game, which is good for tenth in the…


Live Thread: Magic vs Cavaliers

The Orlando Magic come into The Q feeling relatively good about themselves. Montenegrin center Nikola Vucevic continues to develop while averaging nearly 20 and 12 on the young season. New teammate Evan Fournier, acquired in the Arron Afflalo deal, has provided surpringly effective playmaking at guard. Second leading scorer, Tobias Harris will be a gametime decision after missing Saturday’s loss to the Heat. Harris is one of the few wing…


Live Thread: Cavs Vs Raptors

The Raptors come to town tonight after feasting on the Bucks yesterday to earn a 41 point win. Toronto currently looks like one of the top teams in the East, and they have both a top five defense and offense. The Cavs, however, aren’t looking too hot after being beat soundly by the Wizards less than 24 hours ago. The rotation inconsistencies, defensive lapses, and lack of ball movement make me…


Live Thread: Cavs at Wizards

In a season where every game is becoming a test, this one really is a test. A loss tonight, and the Cavs drop below .500 and will have lost three straight: the narrative vultures really will be swirling. Meanwhile, the Wizards are 7-3 despite only having Bradley Beal back for one game. The Wiz are winning with defense. They rank 21st in pace adjusted offense, but eighth in pace adjusted…


Live Thread: Cavs/Spurs

Tough assignment tonight as the Spurs come to town. 5-4 Cleveland tries to right the ship against a Spurs team that has been struggling in their own right at 6-4.  Hulk Hogan is courtside, so eat your vitamins before you post, Hulkamaniacs…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Hawks


The Cavs are back home against the high octane Atlanta Hawks.  Al Horford is healthy again and the Hawks have one of the best starting lineups in the league. Cavs need to play a modicum of defense tonight or they won’t be as fortunate as they were against the Celtics. Prediction: 120-110 Hawks


Live Thread: Cavs at Celtics

The Cavs are Boston tonight to take on the Celtics.  It feels like a lifetime ago that LeBron took off his jersey in the tunnel and left a crater in his wake.  And when I say crater I really mean a Death Star->Alderaan level impact. Brad Stevens was enjoying a showering of Atta-boys after he barely missed winning the NCAA Championship. Rajon Rondo was just a pup…you get the point, it…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Pelicans

The Cavaliers are finally back home, after what seemed like an eternity.  With Dellavedova out for 4-6 weeks and Waiters questionable with a back contusion, who will David Blatt lean on tonight to shore up the backcourt?  Could we possibly some see really “big” lineups with LeBron handling the ball as a de-facto guards? Make your predictions here. I say 105-98 Cavs.


Live Thread: Cavs at Nuggets

The Cavs travel to the Mile-High City tonight to take on the Denver Nuggets. The game starts at 10:30 p.m. Eastern time and is being shown on ESPN. Denver is using an 11 man roster right now. Seriously, 11 guys on their team are averaging more than ten minutes a game, and they are trying to run their way through a mountain with fresh legs to find wins. They have the…


Live Thread: Cavs at Jazz

The Cavs are heading to Utah to take on the Jazz. This game should be interesting because if the Wine & Gold lose there will be a lot of talk about their ineffectiveness so far this season. Everyone on the floor tonight should be playing their best game. Tristan Thompson will be trying especially hard to shut down Derrick Favors whenever he has a chance; shutting down Favors would bolster Thompson’s argument for…
