“Right now, Baron Davis is giving the Cavaliers a jolt of something they haven’t had all year. He’s been a leader. But he’s also been the Cavaliers closer. Coach Byron Scott – who famously once butted heads with Baron – hasn’t minced words in his praise for Davis.” [Joe Gabriele]

“Even if it means battling Minnesota for the worst record in the NBA. The Cavaliers victory over Charlotte bumped them to 16-61, while the Timberwolves fell to 17-61 with a loss to New Jersey. In the race for the most ping-pong balls in the draft lottery, Minnesota might have the edge, with two of their last four games against teams with winning records.” [Jodie Valade]

“The Cavaliers’ 99-89 victory Tuesday over the Charlotte Bobcats was their 16th win of the season, assuring them they won’t finish with the worst season in Cavs history. But it essentially pulled them even with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the league’s worst record.” [Jason Lloyd]

“Come next season, when Kyrie Irving drops 30 & 10 on us in a Wolves uni, I won’t even care, because the Cavs won 18 games in 2010-11.” [Eric Knappenberger]

“Cavs, Tribe and Charlie Sheen all apparently “winning” in Cleveland tonight. What do they have in common? None in the news in four weeks.” [Zac Jackson]

“#Cavs fans furious their team tops Bobcats 99-89. They miss out on Chalupas AND Cavs’ hold on last place in NBA is more tenuous.” [Jodie Valade]
