Dirk not needed…Cavs lose to Mavs 102-95

If the Cavaliers suffered at all last summer from peaking too soon during the regular season, you can cross that off your list of things to worry about for this year’s squad.  Coming into tonight’s game against the Mavericks, the Cavaliers had been riding a 3-game winning streak…but…its tough to argue that they’ve been playing great basketball in the process.  In those […]

Randolph Childress…where are you now?

I found myself watching the 1995 Wake Forest / North Carolina ACC championship game on ESPN Classic today, and just couldn’t help but post the video of probably the nastiest cross-over ever.  At least the nastiest one ex-Cavalier Jeff McInnis ever stumbled into.  In a game that featured the collegiate names of Rasheed Wallace, Jerry Stackhouse, […]

A win is a win…I guess: 99-89 Cavs over Nets

Since the Cavaliers felt like they didn’t have to put forth maximum effort tonight against the Nets, I am going to assume that its okay I don’t put forth maximum effort in my re-cap post either.  Prior to watching, I did want to though, I promise.  But a game that takes Devin Harris hitting Jamario […]

French Fries and HORSE Shots

In case you hadn’t heard, LeBron James made two steals in one play last night against the Thunder.  My apologies, bad joke.  But he did steal a pass, go the length of the court, make a lay-up, get fouled and then steal a fry from a fan sitting courtside.  Video evidence is below… lsGb3oTaaAA[/youtube] […]

That one was fun to watch

OKC is certainly a young and interesting team.  Kevin Durant definitely has all the tools to stay a star in this league for a long time and they have done a good job surrounding him with young talent.  Nevertheless our boys went to work and got a nice win on the road.   On the […]

Examining the race for home court

If you told me after 23 games that we were going to be 4th in the East, and already lost 4 more games then the Lakers, I would have started hyper-ventilating.  Even after beating Portland last night I was a bit on the ledge that even the Hawks have surpassed us in the standings.  Albeit […]

Andy plays big…LBJ deflects a shot attempt

After opening the game with a first half as depressing as the 3 halves of Cavailers’ basketball that had preceeded it, the Cavs responded from a 54-45 halftime deficit with a momentum changing second half to close out B-Roy and the Blazers 104-99 in a game they absolutely had to have.  In addition to doing what his team needed […]

LeBron Held In Check As Rockets Beat Cavs

It’s really amazing what can happen in two days of NBA basketball. After five technical fouls, forty turnovers, and two loses, the Cavaliers go from riding a four game winning streak to losing two straight, including their most recent loss, in which the Houston Rockets put on a defensive clinic while beating the Cleveland Cavaliers, […]
