From Distance: Cedi Bores and Other Things

2019-02-16

  four point play…. 1. I¬†was looking forward to praising Cedi Osman’s MVP performance in the Rising Stars Game at All-Star Weekend. I even pushed back the column in order to allot the proper amount of time and enthusiasm for Cedi’s fantastic play. Alas, Cedi was rather terrible, only seriously competing for LVP. Obviously, a Rising Stars Game doesn’t mean anything for Osman’s professional career. The game is even more…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Pacers

2019-02-09

The Cleveland Cavaliers are playing in the notoriously difficult arena (at least for them) Bankers Life Fieldhouse as they face off against the Indiana Pacers. The good news is that the Cavs saw Kevin Love return to the court, if only for six minutes. The bad news? The Pacers seem to be playing just fine in the face of losing Victor Oladipo for the season. Love will presumably still be…

Recap: Mavericks 111, Cavaliers 98 (or, Lukamania Runs Wild)

2019-02-02

  The Dallas Mavericks came to Quicken Loans Arena to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in what was a night of beginnings and endings for Cavalier fans. Those at the Q got their first up close look at the Mavericks’ rookie sensation, Luka Doncic. It was also the final game at the Q for Mavs legend and future Hall of Famer, Dirk Nowitzki. While these were exciting moments for the fans,…

From Distance: Dallas Joins the EU

2019-02-01

four point play…. 1. The NBA has given me much to be happy about over the last week. The Cavs have played passable ball on both ends of the floor winning the last two, Cedi Osman has finally connected his brain to his skill-set for an extended period of time, Matthew Dellavedova was mic’ed up (that’s all I have on that, that’s just fun), and the New York Knicks traded…

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

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: Heat 100, Cavs 94 (Or, A Back and Forth Affair)

2019-01-26

I was not so foolish this time around. You see, I wanted to have hope that the Cavs would pull of a victory in this third match-up against the Miami Heat. The first two games I expected them to actually win. I’ve learned. Apparently Cleveland can’t score more than 94 points against Miami. And in an age where teams are regularly and more commonly putting up 120+ points, 94 is…

Not a Recap: Denver 124, Cleveland 102 (or, Winter March to Zion)

2019-01-20

Forgive us, Cavs fans. The dregs of January are here, and unexpected commitments forced us to miss the live thread. Personally, I picked the absolute worst weekend to travel to the higher latitudes. It’s about -15 wind chill where I’m at in Michigan. The Cavaliers also suffered from the January chills, as they were dismantled by the red hot Nuggets in the first half, getting outscored 70-46 before Cleveland outscored…

Who Matters? Part 2

2018-12-31

As 2018 comes to a close and the Cleveland Cavaliers approach the halfway point of the NBA season sporting the league’s worst record, now seems like a good time to revisit the question we asked before the season began; who on this team matters in terms of the Cavaliers’ future? This is a question that can have more than one answer, as some players may not matter in terms of…

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

2018-12-30

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…

The above video is a compilation of the cheerleader routines from the 1986 film Wildcats, starring Goldie Hawn as a coach of an inner-city high school football team. The movie itself was not pretty, being widely panned by critics and audiences alike. Yet, it was still probably more watchable than last night’s game. Despite my initial best intentions, I was not able to catch this contest between the Cavs and…

Recap: Chicago 112, Cleveland 92 (or, Holiday Blues)

2018-12-24

The Holiday Blues started at approximately 7:20 PM, December 23rd for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and included a healthy dose of Holiday Orange in the guise of Cleveland’s “City Edition” Tide Pod unis. Those duds can now be officially retired after a 25 point route in the second half to the league worst Chicago Bulls. You read that right. Cleveland led this one by five at the half, and then played…
