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…

Forgive me. I’m not going to be able to do this game justice. Due to scheduling constraints, this triple overtime masterpiece, which was one of the viewing highlights of the Cavs’ season will have to do with an abbreviated recap. This game was a peach: a 63 minute slug fest between two hungry squads that featured plenty of mistakes, but even more bravado, effort, and shotmaking. In the end, despite…

Well, the Cavs effectively shot the Knicks into last place by themselves tonight, rolling out to as much as a 17 point lead against their tanking brethren before nearly sliding back into a late tie. Fortunately, Cleveland had Larry Nance, Jr. leading the charge with his sixth straight double double (including a career high 10 offensive rebounds), and got some terrific support early from a rejuvenated Kevin Love and newly…

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…

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)

2019-01-28

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 Burks 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: 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…

Live Thread: Cavs vs Heat (Hopefully)

2019-01-25

The last time I recapped the a game against the Heat I predicted the Cavs would come out with a win. I suppose I was a bit naive to think this team could compete against any team that was actually trying hard. Cleveland ended up losing that game 118-94. Then, five days later, the Cavs faced off against the Heat again. I thought to myself, “maybe this time the Cavs…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Jazz

2019-01-18

  The Cleveland Cavaliers’ brutal January run continues tonight at they visit the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. Despite losing several players to injuries, the Jazz have been playing extremely well lately, winning five games in a row and eight of their last ten. They’ve pulled into a tie for the seventh seed in the Western Conference, and with a fairly easy schedule the rest of the way, are…

The Cavs had a promising start to the start of their road trip in New Orleans, hitting all eight of their three point attempts as they threatened to run the Pelicans off the floor in the first quarter. It was almost a carbon copy of what the Pacers did the night before in Cleveland to the Cavs. Unfortunately, the tired legs, lack of front court depth, relentless running attack of…

From Distance: Twins?

2019-01-04

four point play…. 1. The Cavs now have a season long losing streak of seven games. Honestly, it feels much shorter than that. I guess compared to the joy that was the Cavs’ 26 game losing streak in Post LeBron Volume 1, this little seven game skirt is nothing but a minor setback. Let’s be honest. The Cleveland fan base has more than enough training to get through a single…

Good call Sandy. This is probably one Cavs game we could have (and should have) avoided seeing… mainly because it was just a rerun of last Friday night’s game in Miami. Things went sort of okay for the first quarter plus… at least until Eric Spolstra once again decided to blind the guys in wine & gold light blue and white (wait, are we sure these were ever colors this team…
