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…

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…

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…

Not A Recap: Grizz 95, Cavs 87 (or, U-G-L-Y… You Ain’t Got No Alibi)

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…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Raptors (Welcome to Jurassic Park)

2018-12-21

The Cleveland Cavaliers will venture into the Raptor cage for this Friday night match-up. While the Cavaliers have shown some fight throughout December, netting four wins, including one against the tough Pacers, the Raptors are a hold other beast. Though Toronto is coming off a brutal 12 game stretch, they still managed some big wins. The Raptors managed to take a chunk out of the Warriors, beating them twice in…

Cleveland ran with the Sixers for three quarters, until Philadelphia decided they’d had enough of the Cavs’ bench, and ripped off a 14-0 run in the early fourth en route to a 39-20 quarter to put a blowout on the Cavs. Philly’s starters were an order of magnitude better than Cleveland’s whose leader among the starters in plus/minus was Ante Zizic and his -16, Sexton, Hood, Osman, and Burks were…

Recap: Milwaukee 114, Cleveland 102 (or, Alphabet Soup)

2018-12-15

The Bucks put little respect on the Cavs’ name tonight, opting to rest Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon, much like they rested Giannis earlier this week in Milwaukee. Cleveland overcame a putrid first quarter to almost make Milwaukee pay for it, as the wine and Gold cut the Milwaukee lead which had been as much as 17 down to just five points with three minutes remaining. Alas, there was just…

Welcome Back

2018-12-12

For as good as it makes us feel, nostalgia is a flawed feeling. As wonderful as memories of the past can be, they typically aren’t accurate. We often remember times gone by for only the good things, while conveniently leaving out the bad. Whether it’s the 1950s, high school, or the career of Michael Jordan, or countless other events or people, things weren’t ever quite as good as we remember…

  Tom Pestak, EvilGenius, and Nate Smith tried to ignore all the tinsel in the broadcast booth as we fired up a pre-Christmas pod. The Warriors matchups, both in the Finals and at Christmas, were heavily in our discussion as we looked back and looked ahead to the December 25th showdown. Much of our bull session revolved around whether the Cavs need another big man, or even if all the big men…

We squeezed four men into the podcast booth Monday night: David Wood, Tom Pestak, Nate Smith, and EvilGenius. Despite the tight quarters, we were all over the place, talking Buckeyes, Kevin Love, the Cavs’ record, Hollywood westerns, what it’s like to be middle aged, what NBAers could play in the NFL, and most of all, sustainability. Is Kevin Love’s shooting sustainable? Are LeBron’s numbers? Is the Cavs’ roster? Is David’s…

The Point Four-ward: the Point Moving Forward

2016-08-31

Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) Of any position on the Cavs, the one with the biggest question mark hanging over it heading into this season was the back-up point guard position. And that was before news broke this weekend that the presumptive holder of that position, Mo Williams, was contemplating retirement.

  27. Stephen Curry’s Temper Tantrum Clocking in at No. 27 of the #CavsRank, Stephen Curry’s temper tantrum during Game 6 of the 2016 Finals may not be the most impactful moment to appear on this list, but is certainly among the most delicious for Cavs fans. After facing elimination in Game 5 at Oakland’s hostile Oracle Arena, the Cavs were able to extend their championship series on the heels…
