Despite a great month of February, the Cavaliers are back to struggling as they continue to adjust to guys being out with injury and new players coming in.

Border War: Cavaliers – Pistons Playoff Preview

The 2015-16 Cleveland Cavaliers frustrated local fans all season long. The team’s inconsistent play, unusual coaching moves (including changing out the head coach), and general attitude seemed to just rub Northeast Ohio the wrong way. All that regular season angst can now be stored under the bed. The Cavaliers clinched the top seed in the

A Couple Tribe Fans Share Their ‘Brush With Greatness’: Reliving Yesteryear

Do you have a story? A Cleveland Indians ‘brush with greatness’? Such a story may involve a well-known player, although this is not a necessity. My buddy Paul shared one. “So, we’re sitting there with all this gear he signed for us. Balls, photos… and a large orange poster we’d made for him, for the

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: Trees falling without making a sound

Don’t get me wrong…that was a fun game. The Cavaliers played some of the best team basketball we’ve seen this group play as they came out and just crushed the Pistons 122-100. But as fun as it was, it unfortunately didn’t matter. The Pistons quit a long time ago. They’re the same team who played

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: A game-winner for Dion

The Cavaliers were on the road, playing the second night of a back-to-back. For the first three quarters the team more or less played like it. The Cavaliers fell down by 16 points and it looked like that would pretty much be it. But the Cavaliers got a surprise offensive explosion from Matthew Dellavedova, Anderson

Thoughts on the Cleveland-Detroit rivalry

Pittsburgh gets most of the sports hate in this town thanks to the Steelers, but 2.5 hours the other direction sits Detroit, a city that collectively may be Cleveland’s biggest rival. With Detroit sitting across the border in that state up North, it’s reason enough for Northeast Ohioans to harbor some hatred, but throw in

Box Score: Cavaliers 79, Pistons 89

You knew this game would be tough to win, with the Cavaliers starting backcourt out with injuries and the Pistons playing good basketball as of late. For a while, that’s exactly what happened, with the Cavaliers falling behind by 20 points in the first half and trailing by 17 at the half. In the 4th

Morosi: Cleveland Indians Scouting Matt Garza

There’s still time before the Major League Baseball trade deadline comes, but that’s not stopping teams from trying to make impact moves prior to the All-Star Break.

If you can’t something nice, don’t say anything at all. I should adhere to that advice right now. I haven’t been this frustrated with a Cavaliers game since Game 5 of that infamous Celtics series. But a shout out to Antawn Jamison for the 0-10 night from the field. Pretty impressive. Cavaliers play again tomorrow.

Will Cavaliers and Pistons Try To Out-Tank Each Other Tonight?

A couple weeks back, when I first addressed the concept of “tanking” to point out that the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-39, 13th in the East) were entering a stretch of brutal games with key players injured, I wrote that I felt the worst (or best, I guess, depending on your point of view) the Cavaliers could

Box Score: Pistons 87, Cavaliers 75

That was….better? The Cavaliers at least defended better and Kyrie Irving was really aggressive in trying to top Brandon Knight. But beyond that, the Cavaliers offense was pretty horrible in this game and the Pistons more or less were able to just coast to victory. Alonzo Gee was simply destroyed by Tayshaun Prince in this

Cavaliers vs Pistons: Let the Tanking Begin!

Welcome to Tank Fest 2012! Ok, so no, I don’t think the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-30, 10th in the East) are actually tanking. Or, shall I say, losing on purpose. I believe Byron Scott is trying to get his team to play well, and I believe the players are (mostly) trying their hardest to win. But

Fascinating game. Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Cavaliers not named Antawn Jamison were sleep walking through 3 quarters. But in the 4th quarter, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee took over this game. The Cavaliers outscored the Pistons 35-23 in the 4th quarter to pull out a nice comeback win. I remember plenty of
