Looking Back At The Cavaliers’ Trade Deadline


While the Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t actually make a trade on deadline day, they were extremely active in the days prior, dealing starters Rodney Hood and Alec Burks to the Portland Trailblazers and Sacramento Kings, respectively. When all was said an done, their spots on the roster were filled by Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss, but as is always the case when it comes to trades in the NBA, there is…


Podcap: Celtics 103, Cavs 96 (or, Riding The Young Bull)

Featured Video Play Icon

It’s been an up and down season for Cavs fans, but it’s always exciting to see progress from young players… even in a losing effort. Down a couple more hombres, with Rodney Hood gone in a trade to Portland and Cedi Osman out with an ankle sprain, the Cavaliers rode their Young Bull for the first three quarters of their contest against the Boston Celtics. For a change, Collin Sexton…


Podcap: Cavs 116, Wizards 113 (or, Twofor Tuesday)

Featured Video Play Icon

Well that was almost too close to call… but, the Cavs prevailed on yet another Tuesday night, running their win streak to two games for only the second time this season. The wine & gold dominated the Wall-less Wizards for just over 40 minutes before nearly choking away a 25 point lead in the final eight minutes. Cedi Osman and Jordan Clarkson were the two-headed scoring monster for the Cavs,…


Recap: Cleveland 104, Chicago 101 (the Burks of the Game)


The Cavs took a wild route to their 10th win of the season, surrendering an eight point fourth quarter lead before scoring on a wild offensive rebound and jump hook by Alec BurksĀ to retake the lead with 17 seconds left, before two big stops and two big free throws by the Cavs put a lid on things for the Bulls. Larry Drew wanted this one badly, and played Dellavedova down…


Recap: Atlanta 111, Cleveland 108 (or, Vinced & Burked)


This was a fun one, Cavs fans. Cleveland battled back from an 11 point early first quarter deficit to tie the game, only to be done in by missed free throws, bad execution, and an inability to rebound as they were edged out in the final minute by Vince Carter and the Atlanta Hawks. Vinsanity was in the air in Atlanta as the 41 year old Carter turned back the…


Recap: Miami 118, Cleveland 94 (Or, An 80s Induced Haze)


I was too optimistic in my pregame prediction of the final score. The Cavs were, it appeared, suffering from an 80s induced haze caused by the Miami Heat’s throwback jerseys and court. It’s either that or the zone defense Spoelstra had the Heat in all game long. Whatever the cause, Cleveland could get absolutely nothing going all game long. Sure, there were bright spots and blips on the radar sprinkled…


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…


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: Cavs 99, Nets 97 (or, The Bandit)


East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’ We gonna do what they say can’t be done We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there I’m east bound, just watch ol’ bandit run No, you didn’t just accidentally stumble onto a fan page for the late, great Burt Reynolds. Rest assured, I’ll bring this all back to the Cavs’ narrow victory over the Brooklyn…


Making Moves


While not a successful week in terms of wins and losses, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been quite active this week. As we all know, they traded Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday in exchange for Alec Burks and a pair of second-round draft picks. Then on Sunday, they waived two-way players Andrew Harrison and Billy Preston, while signing Jalen Jones and Jaron Blossomgame to two-way contracts of their…


Not A Recap: Celtics 128, Cavs 95 (or, Nephewed)


Uncle Drew has been in Collin Sexton’s shoes. Kyrie Irving was once a promising rookie getting nightly lessons from the NBA’s best point guards. He understands being the hope of a re-building franchise in the aftermath of a LeBron James departure. He struggled through a 21 win inaugural season (we’ll see if Sexton and this iteration of the Cavs get anywhere close to that), while shouldering the dreams and expectations…
