Recap: Bulls 86, Cavaliers 85 (Or, there shall be worrying where there is no spacing)

Overview: After a close, ugly game, the Cavaliers lost their 2nd home game of the year when a LeBron James was stuffed with the Cavaliers trailing by a point. Cavs-Related Bullets: First things first, and by that I mean the first quarter. Last year, the Cavs’ opening unit absolutely destroyed people and set the tone, whether it was Wallace or Varejao in the starting lineup. The Cavaliers were the best…

Profiles in Profiling: Mo Williams

Watching Cavalier point guards in the LeBron era was a fun kind of suffering. Jeff McInnis was good enough for a while, until Paul Silas woke up one day and decided “You know what? Screw Jeff McInnis.” After that, McInnis went from nearly competent starting guard into NBA oblivion fairly quickly. Then came the era of Eric Snow. Now, when I talk about Jeff McInnis being “nearly competent,” I mean…

Recap: Cavs 102, Wizards 90 (Or, patience beats anger)

Overview: The Cavs survived an early 31-17 first-quarter blitz from the Wizards, dominating the final three quarters behind Shaq’s best game as a Cavalier to date. Cavs-Related Bullets: First bullet goes to Shaq. I have resigned myself to the reality that I’m going to go back and forth on this trade about 70 or 80 times this season, and won’t really know whether or not it worked until deep in…

Recap: Cavs 90, Bobcats 79 (Or, Delonte’s Back and there’s gonna be trouble.)

Overview: Spurred on by Delonte West’s triumphant return and Mo Williams’ continued return to form, the Cavs comfortably put away the offensively-challenged Bobcats. Cavs-Related Bullets: Keeping it short because it’s Halloween: -Mo gets the first bullet tonight. Looking fantastic tonight, putting down his signature three from the left corner behind a screen, a corner dive behind a Varejao back-screen, drives to the hoop, everything. The lane was a little clogged…

Recap: Cavaliers 104, Wolves 87 (Or, Wow That Was Better)

Overview: In a commanding performance from start to finish, the Cavaliers cruised to their first win of the year over the Timberwolves, with 5 Cavs finishing in double-digits and LeBron James and Mo Williams getting 24 and 20 points. Cavs-Related Bullets: I mean, whoa. This team just looked completely different in every possible way. The ball movement and spacing tonight was absolutely¬†unbelievable-Shaq drew a double-team and found LeBron cutting down…

A Few Off-Day Thoughts On Shaq

Alright, so we’re not yet a week into the “I am seriously worried about this Shaq thing working” out period of the season. Others from around the league have done little to assuage me-remember how I said last time that Jamario Moon is like a crazy chick who all your friends shoot knowing glances to each other about? Well, Shaq seems to be treated like the evil ex-wife who eventually…

Recap: Toronto 101, Cleveland 91 (Or: I’m not a worrier, but it’s also not like I sleep.)

Overview: The Cavs were unable to recover from a 57-39 1st-half drubbing, shooting 35% from the floor and losing 101-91 to the Raptors. Cavs-Related Bullets: It is so not time to panic. It is very far from being a time to panic. If the Cavs were 2-0, it’s not like everybody would be celebrating. That said, it is time for a good deal of concern. Onward and upward: -LeBron James…

Recap: Boston 95, Cleveland 89 (Or, the time the honeymoon ended before it began.)

Overview: After a hot first quarter, the Celtics blitzed the Cavaliers’ second unit in the second quarter and carried the momentum all the way through the game, surviving a 38-point effort from LeBron James en route to a 95-89 victory. Cavs-Related Bullets: -Starting on a happy note: LeBron seems to be picking up right where he left off last season. An absolutely monstrous game to the tune of 38/4/8 on…

From The THN Season Preview: The Stretch Four

(Editor’s Note: The Following Is My Piece For the “League-Wide” Section of the TrueHoop 2009-10 Season Preview, so it is not Cavs-centric. I still think it’s worth reading and you guys are still my favorites, so here it is in all of its glory. Again, any slip-ups in formatting are from the transfer of the piece from the PDF-based and great-looking book to my very plain HTML blog. Also, the…
