Live Thread: Cavs vs Pacers (Home Again?)

Well, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 0-5 to start the season. While no one likes a loss, the losses at home against Atlanta and Brooklyn were particularly upsetting. It’s frustrating when your team doesn’t show up for the home crowd. I don’t predict tonight will look any better. The preseason showed us that this Pacers team is like the big brother version of what the Cavs want to be. They do…

From Distance: Watching the Unwatchable

  four point play…. 1. The Cavaliers have been particularly difficult to watch thus far. It’s not as though the previous two regular seasons were a joy. LeBron played with little to no effort on the defensive end. Rotations varied from “huh?” to “you gotta be kidding me”. The offense cratered anytime James wasn’t on the court and the defense bled points regardless. It was frustrating to watch a team play…

Recap: Detroit 110, Cavs 103 (Or, Enough Too Late)

In 2003, the great deceased American Rap-Rock singer of Lincoln Park, Chester Bennington, sang in a chorus, “I tried so hard and got so far/but in the end, it doesn’t even matter/ I had to fall, to lose it all/ but in the end, it doesn’t even matter.” I’m bringing up this song for a variety of reasons. For one, most people know this song and have secretly enjoyed it,…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Detroit (The Love Thread)

After a loss to the Nets less than 24 hours ago, the Cavs are on the road to take on Detroit. So far this season the Cavs have fallen short of getting a win.  They currently rank 30th in the league in 3-pointers made with just seven a game. They are 29th in the league for 3-pointers made by opponents per game with 15.0. They’re allowing 120.5 points a night…

Recap: Nets 102, Cavs 86 (or, Triskaphobia)

Halloween isn’t until next week… but the Cleveland Cavaliers seem to already be suffering from a different brand of terror. No, triskaphobia isn’t the fear of watching Tristan Thompson’s futile offensive stylings (that would be triskaidekaphobia — fear of the number 13). It’s the fear of three… or in this case, threes. Bad things have come in threes so far this season. The Cavs were 0-3 before taking on the…

Live Thread/Diatribe: Cavs vs. Nets (#NoDefense)

As the old idiom goes… “a picture is worth a thousand words.” There aren’t many pictures of Mike Longabardi one can find on the internet… but this one speaks the loudest, intentionally or not. This isn’t a new image to most of you, since I’ve used it countless times thus far in this season’s first three games. It’s been elevated to headline status because I’ve already wasted at least a…

Live Thread: Cavs vs. Hawks

Seven teams remain without a win in this fledgling NBA season, and with both the Hawks and Cavs at 0-2, something’s got to give. Cleveland makes its home debut after giving up big second quarter runs to the Raptors and T-Wolves. The Hawks come in having given up 257 points to the Knicks and Grizzlies, with an average loss margin of 16.5. Leading the Hawks have been Taurean Waller-Prince who…

Recap: Minnesota 131, Cleveland 123 (Cedi’s you’s a balla’, but…)

Froggy Fresh and Moneymaker Mike here. Yeah, we’re bringing it back to 2010 for Froggy’s ode to Derrick Rose (still together!), Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, the Bulls, and most especially we’re “talkin’ bout that man, Jimmy Butler.” Now the Cav’s all ’bout to get slaughtered Cause Jimmy Butler is your father Preach, Froggy. After a nice opening seven minutes that saw the Cavs up 13-21, the Wolves outscored the Cavs 56-28…

Live Thread: Cavs vs Timberwolves

The Cavaliers travel to Kevin Love’s old stomping grounds tonight to face the disgruntled Jimmy Butler and his pack of timid youths. After a rough first game for Love, I’m sure he will want to bounce back and have a big game against his former team. The Wolves, meanwhile, lost their first game to the Spurs in a tight 112-108 contest. The Cavs face a tough first two opponents in…
