No, we don’t reference RoboCop in this PodCap, but he was from New Detroit… and the Cavs did clean up the Pistons the way Murphy shut down crime in that city… and Larry Nance Jr. did play like a cyborg for most of his first start at Center… and Tom, Nate and EG did spend an inordinate amount of time at the end of this long and winding pod playing…

2018-02-09

We asked for a magic bullet… We got an entire clip. Though Ice Cube might disagree… today was most definitely a very good day… especially for your Cleveland Cavaliers. Gone are Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye… and even Dwayne Wade. The incoming new faces are George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson and the son of former Cavalier great, Larry Nance, Jr. Suddenly, the clouds that…

Recap: Magic 116, Cavs 98 (or, Not The Magic Bullet They Were Looking For…)

2018-02-07

The hope this week for the Cleveland Cavaliers was that they might somehow discover a “magic bullet” trade to shake things up and possibly right their quickly sinking ship. Instead, they received another shot to the back of the dome from one of the worst caliber teams in the Eastern Conference… who were on the second night of a back-to-back… and who were missing two starters and a key reserve….

Podcap: Cavs 91, Heat 89 (or, Napoleon and the Yeti)

Talk about hard… this game was like Napoleon trying to win at Waterloo hard… like finding a yeti at the top of the mountain hard. Hard to play, hard to watch and hard to even recap in a reasonable amount of time. For 48 (thankfully only that) minutes which seemed like twice that (yet still shorter than this podcast), the Cavs and Heat took turns bricking threes at an insane…

Podcap: Warriors 118, Cavs 108 (or, Early Dreams… Late Nightmares)

For a half, the Cavaliers realized their dreams of taking it to the Golden State Warriors and changing their regular MLK Day fate of seasons past. Unfortunately, those dreams went dark in a nightmarish fourth quarter that saw them miss 14 of their first 15 shots. In the end, the final score was decidedly closer than the previous two MLK Massacres, but the Cavs had a fourth straight loss (9th…

Recap: Cavs 131, Magic 127 (or, Shootout At The Magic Kingdom)

2018-01-07

If you like your basketball with more shooting and less resistance… then this contest between the Cavs and Magic in Orlando was for you. Defense was barely a rumor (with the exception of one decent quarter), as both teams fired away with regularity… putting up nearly 100 shots a piece (98 for the Magic, 96 for the Cavs) while hitting 50% of them. There were plenty of long range snipers…

Isaiah Thomas is a really good sandbagger. “I have no rhythm,” he said before the game… “I have no feel for the game right now,” he explained…  “I’ve been out for so long it feels like I lost my powers,” he humbly admitted. Well, if last night’s effort is any indication of what a “rusty” IT looks like… the league should be put on notice for when he’s at full…

Recap: Cavs 115, Bulls 112 (or, It Don’t Matter… It Don’t Matter!)

2017-12-22

Hot opponent on a seven game win streak? It don’t matter. Starting shooting guard a late scratch? It don’t matter. Head coach too sick to be on the sidelines? It don’t matter. Twenty-six lead changes? Giving up a 10 point lead in the fourth quarter? One point lead with 14 seconds left? It don’t matter… it don’t matter… IT DON’T MATTER! Lucky for us… LeBron James was mic-ed up tonight during…

Recap: Cavs 105, Sixers 98 (or, Deep Sixed)

2017-12-10

There were many potential factors working against a positive outcome for the Cavaliers as they took on the Sixers at the Q last night. Not only were they on the second night of a back to back (which hasn’t worked out well for the veterans who otherwise usually put the “win” in wine instead of the “old” in gold), but it was hard to even call it a second night…

What does Stephen Hawking have to do with the Cavs’ decisive victory over the Philadelphia 76ers tonight, their eighth win in as many games? Well, you’ll have to listen to the podcap to fully appreciate and consummate the answer. Needless to say, just like time itself… the fortunes of these teams have followed a process (with a capital “P” for the Sixers over the past few seasons, and a lowercase…

Recap: Pelicans 123, Cavs 101 (or, For the Birds)

2017-10-29

Frustrating… annoying… pointless… those are the common interpretations of the idiom in the subtitle of this recap, and they couldn’t be more fitting. Even the context of this game was essentially for the birds. After all, an early season roadie to the Big Easy (where nothing is ever remotely that for the wine and gold), sandwiched between arguably the biggest college football game to date this year in the Buckeye…

Live Thread: Cavs vs. Nets

2017-10-25

Tonight is the second night of a back to back. History shows us that the Cavs turn into zombies on the court in these situations. Halloween isn’t quite here yet, but the team seems to be a bit too old for bodies to rebound quickly enough to handle the strain. Unfortunately, this game counts for double as Cleveland looks to help increase the value of their most recent trade/draft asset…
