Recap: Mo Knows How To Get Us Into The Break

  Overview: The Cavs cruise to an easy victory against the Nash-less Suns behind a career-high 44 points from Mo Williams.  Cavs-Related Bullets: When Mo’s got it going like he does tonight, just pack it up and go home. He can’t be stopped when he’s this hot. How do you stop a guy who does most of his damage off long jumpers on the dribble? Hint: you do not. While…

Things To Get You Through A Bad Off-Day

It’s never fun to suffer through that off-day after a loss, especially when Pavs is now apparently out for 4-6 with an ankle sprain (did Larry Hughes curse the team as he left?) Here are a few quick notes to get some space up: -The recap will be late tomorrow, as I’ll be going down the street and masquerading as a real reporter for SLAM. -The Cavs did have a…

Recap: Fall of The Cavs-tille

Overview: In a redux of their meeting in Los Angeles, the Lakers survived an early barrage of three-pointers from the Cavs and manhandled them in the second half to take the game. There were few fireworks from LeBron and Kobe, and the game ball ended up going to Lamar Odom, who finished with a season-high 28 points and 17 rebounds. The Cavs lost their first home game since May 1,…

Notes And Errata For The Weekend

Hey folks, just some things to chew on for the weekend to fill in this 3-day gap in between games: I can’t really sum up any righteous anger over Ray Allen getting the injury-replacement all-star spot over Mo Williams, mostly because Allen was a huge snub the first time around; he’s been Boston’s best offensive player, he’s shooting a career-high 63.2% TS to lead all guards while scoring 18 a…

Lot of stuff happening on CTB today and we welcome all of you-in case interested, I appeared on ESPN’s NBA Today podcast this morning talking LeBron stuff.

Recap: 23 Straight At Home. LeBron wears 23. Something Witty.

Overview: Short-handed again with Sasha Pavlovic out with the flu, the Cavs were nevertheless able to get out to a commanding early lead against the Raptors, only to let them back in the game in the second half and eventually put the team away. LeBron went for 33 and got 9 threes from the combination of Wally, Mo, and Boobie. Cavs-Related Bullets: Okay, who else got caught thinking 62 when…

Off-Day Seminar Of Some Importance: In Which We Redouble Our Efforts, Manifesto-Wise

When I started this site way back in early 2009, I had an unwritten rule that LeBron’s 2010 destination was not going to be a topic of discussion on this site. At all. It’s just an overplayed story, and besides it’s not the favorite subject of Cavs fans. And there’s way too many important things that are going to happen with this team in the next two years to waste…

The Era Of Trey Johnson Is Set To Begin In Cleveland

The Cavs have made a move, but not the Wally Z’s expiring blockbuster many Cavs fans are hoping for. With Jawad Williams’ second 10-day contract up, the Cavs have passed on giving him a full-year contract and instead signed swingman Trey Johnson. (Hat-Tip to Windhorst at the CPD.) This move was made to shore up the bench with old CTB favorite Delonte West still out until around the All-Star break…
