Live Thread: Cavs @ Raptors (Welcome to Jurassic Park)

The Cleveland Cavaliers will venture into the Raptor cage for this Friday night match-up. While the Cavaliers have shown some fight throughout December, netting four wins, including one against the tough Pacers, the Raptors are a hold other beast. Though Toronto is coming off a brutal 12 game stretch, they still managed some big wins. The Raptors managed to take a chunk out of the Warriors, beating them twice in…

Recap: Hornets 110, Cavs 99 (Or, Getting Sandbagged)

Kemba Walker and the Hornets came out and sandbagged the Cavs tonight. Whether intentional or not, it worked. Cleveland controlled the game for the first 19 minutes and nine seconds. No more, no less. Charlotte then went on to outscore the Cavs by 16 in the second half. After scoring 41 in the first half, they scored 41 in the third quarter alone. During the first stretch of the game,…

Recap: Cavs 92, Pacers 91 (or, Tips for Winning)

This is officially getting spooky. I mean, a Tuesday win over the also rebuilding Atlanta Hawks in Cleveland was probably an even money bet, even if it was the first one of the season. A second Tuesday win, over a visiting Charlotte Hornets team? Okay, it could be chalked up to coincidence… or even the tide pod inspired City uniforms. But, a third Tuesday win… on the road… against one…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Pacers (#Physicality)

The Indiana Pacers are a tough team. They showed as much last season in the first round of the playoffs. Physicality is the name of their game, and they’ve shown it off this year as the stingiest defense to score on in the League allowing just 101.2 points per game. To accomplish this, they feature a strong mix of individual and team defenders. They average more than nine steals per…

Santa’s Cavalier Swap Meet, East Edition

It’s that time of year again, no, not the holiday season, I’m talking NBA trade season. Dec. 15th was the date that players signed in the summer of 2018 could be traded. We already saw our first move when the Wizards moved Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers for Phoenix’s Trevor Ariza. The Cavs are in full sale mode, and they’ve got an asset most everyone wants: 2019 cap space. The…

Recap: Philadelphia 128, Cleveland 105 (or, Starting to Fail)

Cleveland ran with the Sixers for three quarters, until Philadelphia decided they’d had enough of the Cavs’ bench, and ripped off a 14-0 run in the early fourth en route to a 39-20 quarter to put a blowout on the Cavs. Philly’s starters were an order of magnitude better than Cleveland’s whose leader among the starters in plus/minus was Ante Zizic and his -16, Sexton, Hood, Osman, and Burks were…

Live Thread: Cavs vs 76ers

The Sixers come to town on this gray Sunday afternoon. Jimmy Butler is listed as questionable for this one, and normally I’d think he’d sit out, but with Philly smarting from a thumping at the hands of the Pacers, and with only a game and a half separating second place from fifth place in the East, I wonder if they’ll take the chance. Though, judging by the way the Milwaukee…

Recap: Milwaukee 114, Cleveland 102 (or, Alphabet Soup)

The Bucks put little respect on the Cavs’ name tonight, opting to rest Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon, much like they rested Giannis earlier this week in Milwaukee. Cleveland overcame a putrid first quarter to almost make Milwaukee pay for it, as the wine and Gold cut the Milwaukee lead which had been as much as 17 down to just five points with three minutes remaining. Alas, there was just…

Live Thread: Cavs vs. Bucks

The Bucks return to the Q after whooping the Cavs in Milwaukee just a few days ago. This time, they will probably not be resting Giannis, so victory will be an even taller order for Cleveland. The Cavs are coming off a fun win over the Knicks while the Bucks got beat by 16 in Indianapolis, Wedenesday. For Cleveland, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and John Henson all remain out. Let’s…

From Distance: A Sip of Delly

four point play…. 1. Oh Delly, how I have missed you. During a season full of poor defensive rotations, ball hogging chucktitude, and generally ill-advised play, your return has been like a sip of Gatorade in the desert. I know I’m thirsty and any hint of liquid would sooth my cracked lips, but sweet baby basketball, are those electrolytes?!  Watching Mathew Dellavedova play basketball after almost a full season of…

Recap: Cavs 113, Knicks 106 (Winning Plays)

This season has made Cavs fans change how they watch the game. Nothing is as it seems when the team you root for is just battling to land in the bottom of the standings in hopes of landing a high draft pick. Someone can put up forty points and it means nothing. Even a 25 point game can mean nothing. Someone on the team has to score, and you have…
