Recap: Ultra-Quick Thoughts

Sorry Guys, but full disclosure is that I missed the second half last night because I was flying back to school. I’ll open up a thread here so that you guys can get your thoughts in, but all I have are a couple of quick hits: -Andy’s off-ball movement: amazing. If JJ wants back in the rotation, he should look at what Andy’s doing. When you move with LeBron, good…

Recap: Business-Like on a weekend

  Overview: In a refereshing blowout not really reflected by the final score, the Cavs easily held their home-court against the red-hot Hawks, controlling the game defensively and cruising to a win behind 20-point efforts from James and Williams. Cavs-Related Bullets: Embrace the boring. We got back to our defensive fundamentals tonight, and the strangling defense allowed us to not really break a sweat in crusing to a victory.  LeBron…

Recap: at this point, that’s not even stressful.

  Overview:  In an overtime game oddly devoid of suspense, the Cavs and Blazers engaged in an extremely ugly defensive struggle, with efforts from LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas eventually able to will the Cavs to an overtime win.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Well, at least we’re used to this by now. And we got back to our defensive fundamentals, which was definitely a good thing, and kept us in this game…

Recap: I’m out of things to say. (Not really)

  Overview: In a playoff-intensity game, the Cavs scrapped to defend their home floor by edging out the Magic behind an epic 43/12/8 from LeBron James, who had a massive go-ahead three with 47 seconds to go.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Seriously, though, what was up with 6 turnovers from LeBron tonight? I kid. LeBron James is more messianic than you are.  Not only did he completely dominate this game, but he…

Recap: That Was Relatively Easy

Overview: In their first game at home after a gut-wrenching road trip, the Cavs allowed the Knicks to hang around for three quarters but were able to pull away down the stretch. Mo Williams went for a team-high 23 on 13 shots, while LeBron added 19/8/10 . Cavs-Related Bullets: The game ball tonight might go to Mo Williams, who seems to have experimented with missing in California and decided it’s…

Recap: That’s Why You Stay In On A Friday Night

  Overview: No. This game defies overview. We somehow won this game. That is all.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Um, holy crap. I know I say that a lot, but this team has a knack for it.  Let me say this before I start, because it definitely warrants mentioning and I’ll forget it later: I got the Kings broadcasters on my LP feed tonight, and I want to give them major props….

Just So I Don’t Forget

I was going to make a mental note of this, but realized I might forget it and it deserves its own post. (Or maybe not, but I can do it anyways. Web 2.0!)  LeBron James just drew a clear-path foul, hit two free throws, and then hit a three after the Cavs got the ball at the sideline. That’s a five-point possession without an offensive rebound or technical foul-it is…

Recap: Prime-Time is Sasha Time

Overview: The Cavaliers were able to beat the Suns at their own game on national television, outscoring the Suns 119-111 behind 30-point efforts from LeBron and Mo. LeBron also notched his third triple-double in a row. Cavs-Related Bullets: It’s really, really hard to lose a game when you go 17-33 from beyond the arc. Great shooting is the universal deodorant in the NBA, and it made up for some supremely…

Recap: 6 seconds of bliss

  Overview: After getting manhandled for the first three quarters against the Clippers in a texbook “trap game,” the Cavs scored 35 of their 87 points in the fourth quarter to erase a 19-point fourth-quarter deficit and win the game. The winning basket was Mo Williams’ three-pointer with 6 seconds to go. LeBron added a triple-double. Cavs-Related Bullets: Holy crap. So this is what that whole “Witness” business is all…

A Quick Note As I Walk Out The Door

Hey all, I’m getting dressed up to go catch Cavs-Clippers over at Staples and don’t have a ton of time, but did just see this on NBA.com (Found Via TrueHoop). It’s a (very good) interview with game-charter and guru Harvey Pollack, who at one point mentions the following tidbit: He said, ‘I watch it.’ So, during the height of Michael’s career, I got the play-by-play of the first 20 Bulls…

Off-Day Notes And Errata: Monday Edition!

  -On the Heat game: sorry for not getting a recap up, I’ve been more or less out of comission all weekend.  -Basically, Mo Williams was the difference between winning and losing-I didn’t see him being this reliable in the clutch in my wildest dreams. Thank god we pulled that one off.  -Holy God, Dwyane Wade does not stop. As I write this, he’s sitting on on 42 points on…

Cavs-Related Bullets:  This was not pretty. The Cavs never got into any…
