Podcast Episode 118: Brooklyn Brooklyn (Recap) and Kyle Korver Dreamin’


Recap: Cleveland 116, Brooklyn 108 With the Big Three finally healthy, the Cavs traveled to Brooklyn to face the league’s worst squad. Cleveland handled their business for three quarters and then kept letting their foot off the gas, before popping the clutch into neutral as the Nets scored 40 in the fourth and kept the game interesting enough that the Big Three had to keep them at bay during garbage…


Recap: Cavs 94, Bulls 106 (or, Sometimes It’s Better To Take A Day Off)


LeBron James could have called in sick last night. Maybe he should have. With the other two members of the big three missing in action, and the flu bug hitting hard enough to force him to miss practice, it would have been an easy and acceptable decision by the King to take a day off. Instead, he chose to fight through his illness and try to gut out the Cavs’ last home game…


Sticking With Mike Dunleavy


With the 2016-2017 NBA season quickly nearing the first quarter pole, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been playing as well as any team in the league thus far. At 13-3 with a two-game lead in the Eastern Conference, the NBA Champions have carried over their momentum from last season, and are playing inspired, confident basketball. There are very few concerns at Cleveland Clinic Courts right now.


The Point Four-ward: Dollar Dollar Bills, Y’all


Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) On Friday, the Cavs and J.R. Smith agreed on a new four-year, $57 million contract, ending another preseason stand-off between the team’s front office and Smith’s agency, Klutch Sports. In the end, both sides can claim they got what they were after, as Smith will receive a reported $45 million in guaranteed money — quite a bump up from the $5 million…


Podcast Episode 110: Preseason Cavs, Postseason Tribe

Featured Video Play Icon

With the preseason winding down and the regular season just over a week away, Tom and I hopped in the the podcast booth to discuss all things Cavs. Top on our list was the Cavs effect on their neighbors, the Cleveland Indians. The wine and gold definitely bring an energy to Progressive every postseason game. The team’s effect is palpable everywhere they go, but when LeBron and Co. show up…


Pre-Cap: Chicago 118, Cleveland 108 (or, Final Auditions)


We’ll forgive you if you were watching the Tribe last night, and are just getting back here to catch up on last night’s Cavs action (I was too, which is why this is posting pretty late). Cleveland sat its starters and most of its rotations players as they took on Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo and the Chicago Bulls, Friday. A Cleveland starting lineup of Felder, Liggins, McRae, Holmes, and Corey Jefferson…


Pre-Cap: Cavs 117, Magic 102 (or, Mooovin’ On Uuup…)


Much has been made of the median age of the Cleveland Cavaliers as they find themselves on the cusp of beginning their quest to repeat as NBA Champions. Some might even dare to call them “long in the tooth.” And, that’s not a wholly wrong assessment. In fact, now that Timmy has hung up his spurs in San Antonio, the Cavs are the second oldest team in the League at…

The Point Four-ward: Minor Threat


Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) The 2016 NBA Las Vegas Summer League crowned a champion Monday night as the Summer Bulls bested the Summer Wolves 84-82. Summer League MVP (and former Cavaliers first round pick) Tyus Jones tallied 27 points and 10 assists, eventually falling to the Bulls, led by the duo of Bobby Portis and Jerian Grant. Portis and Grant scored 26 and 24 points…


KneeCap: Summer Cavs 79, Summer Bulls 85 (or, Title Hopes Washed Away)


It was fun while it lasted… but the summer run had to end sometime for these Cavalier hopefuls. While they unfortunately didn’t make it to the Tournament Championship game to face former Cav draftee Tyus Jones and the TWolves, the Summer Cavs showed a lot of fight, effort and talent in getting further than expected. Their endless summer was finally cut short by an undefeated Bulls squad that featured a…


KneeCap: Summer Cavs 91, Summer Nets 83 in OT (or, Why Stop Now?)


Apparently, the Summer League Cavs are just having too much fun to stop their summer run. After coming back to upset the favored Lakers on Thursday, the Cavs cut down the Brooklyn Nets in the quarterfinal round of the Vegas Summer League Tournament, 91-83 in overtime. Despite getting out to a fast start, leading by as much as 10 in the first quarter behind yet another strong scoring effort from…


KneeCap: Summer Cavs 88, Laker (mostly) Regulars 80 (or, The Endless Cavalier Summer Continues)


The Summer League Cleveland Cavaliers, led by Jordan McRae (standing in for LeBron James) and Kay Felder (standing in for Kyrie Irving), showed once again how little the regular season matters (even if it’s just three games), in defeating the previously undefeated and favored Los Angeles Laker Summer Squad last night in Las Vegas. The Orange Mamba (McRae), doing his best Black Mamba impression, scored a game-high 36 points to…
