Contrary to what was posited in the Saturday Night Live sketch that was cut for time last weekend, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard is in fact not a Roomba. However, such a point guard would have been handy in sweeping up the smoldering ashes of the Toronto Raptors following Monday night’s Game 4 extinction level event. As expected, the Cavs completed their impressive clean sweep of the top seeded dinos,…

2018-05-02

For once in these 2018 NBA playoffs, LeBron James wasn’t forced to carry the Cavaliers all by himself. On a night when his tired legs produced one of his least efficient games in the post-season to date, he got by with a little help from his friends. Four Cavs scored in double figures, and JR Smith became the first of LeBron’s teammates in eight playoff games to reach the 20…

LeBron James went all Top Gun on the Pacers in Game 2, scoring 20 points in the first quarter and 46 for the game to lead the Cavs to a victory that wound up a little closer than it should have. In the end, Cleveland evened things up with the feisty Indy squad and their “Iceman” Victor Oladipo. The Cavs supporting cast didn’t wash out as much as they did…

Recap: Cavs 123, Knicks 109 (Or, Of Course)

2018-04-10

Not a lot happened in this game that was unexpected. The Cavs managed to beat the New York Knicks 123 to 109. They accomplished this feet by trying, well, only sometimes. Of course this would be the outcome and everyone in the arena knew it. New York is in tank mode and Cleveland doesn’t much care about their seeding going into the playoffs. Fortunately, the Cavs did manage to get…

On a night when LeBron James tied the “unbreakable record” set by Charlotte Hornets owner, Michael Jordan, of 866 consecutive games with at least 10 points… the real catalyst was a dude who’s been missing for a while. According to Larry Drew, JR Smith got inspired by playing with a labrador belonging to the North Carolina baseball team during practice this morning… but maybe, just maybe… he found the Fountain…

“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” — Jonathan Swift, Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting Before you go expecting a deep dive into John Kennedy Toole’s famously posthumous, Pulitzer Prize winning novel as a pointed allegory for the current state of the Cleveland Cavaliers coaching staff… just know that it was…

Recap: Cavs 115, Pacers 108 (or, Quadrophenia)

2018-01-27

It qualifies as dramatic understatement to say that the Cleveland Cavaliers have undergone a bit of an identity crisis this season. We’ve already seen the squad that stumbled to a rocky 3-5 start… then the one that ripped off 13 straight wins during an 18-1 stretch… and most recently the one that seemingly forgot how to play defense, dropping 10 of 13 contests while sinking like a stone in the…

When are 120 points not enough? When you give up 129. That’s obvious and simple math… but the Cavs chose to try and sprint along next to the Warriors in an attempt to outrun, outgun and outscore them with a team loaded with shooters. In the end… they just couldn’t quite match the offensive firepower, which was magnified by their own mistakes and inability to get stops when they desperately needed them.

LeBron James said he’s more of a red wine guy than a beer guy in his post game presser, referring to his pantomiming of taking a swig during a break in play in the third quarter of the Cavs’ opening game victory over the Toronto Raptors. If he continues to play at this rate, he might just be a champagne guy again at the end of the post-season. The King…

It wasn’t always easy… but at least it was quick. The Cavs put the finishing touches on their first round sweep of the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, becoming the first team to punch their ticket to the second round. For their efforts, they get to kick back and relax for a week or so as they wait for the winner of the slugfest between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto…
