Cavs’ late surge not enough after abysmal second quarter

It’s nothing new. We’ve seen the Cavaliers play far less than 48 solid minutes per game. Most of the time, a good chunk of it is in the third quarter. Tonight, it came instead just before the half, and the combination of the Cavaliers’ frigid offense and Hornets’ scorching scoring left the Cavs with their […]

Cavs stats of the week: continuity needed, as schedule ramps up

With only two games played over the past week, there wasn’t much new on the statistical forefront, but there are a few things that I will address this week. Barely a month into the season, we still don’t have a very good grasp of what we are dealing with in regard to the 2010-11 Cleveland […]

Cavs beat Sixers 101-93…all even at five

Heading into Tuesday’s match-up with the Sixers I really thought I was going to be talking about how J.J. Hickson responded to his coach questioning his desire to rebound on Monday with a monster game on the glass. Only that response came in the form of 2 rebounds, total, for the game. So there’s not […]

Cavs lose to Indiana, fall to 4-5 with critcial stretch upcoming

The Cavs await a 2-8 Philly team’s trip to the Q on Tuesday in need of a home win in the worst kinda way you could need a home win. After falling to Indiana on Saturday 99-85 due the inability to remotely cover Pacers Forward Danny Granger (34-2-2), coupled with Cleveland’s worst second half effort […]

Odds of a Cleveland Playoff Push

To look at the atmosphere in Cleveland this NBA season, it’s clear that both players and fans believe the past is past and the future is now. Over the course of 82 games, the Cavaliers are looking to prove that their Eastern Conference dominance and the former presence of one now absent player were not […]

Stats of the Week…if Cavs score 101 they win

Stats of the Week (11/12/10): Well the 2010-11 season is now eight games old and the Cavaliers are 4-4.  While we haven’t quite played the who’s who of the NBA (combined 26-36 record thru Wednesday’s games), we have been competitive against the competition we have played.  No one is saying that we are still a […]

Second Half Woes Pile Up

So what started out as a three game road trip against what I like to call “Neighbouring Teams” has come full cycle, and we returned home Wednesday for part deux against the Nets. Before we get into what occurred at the Q, just a quick little run down of what was a satisfying win over […]

A Great 48 Hours

Last week I mentioned that the Cavs had four games on the horizon that we should be looking at picking up four wins from four. Through two games, we’re 2-0, with a back to back against the Nets this Tuesday and Wednesday. This weekend was a particularly profitable weekend for yours truly, as a few […]

There’s no more need for responses, let’s focus on us Cleveland

All of a sudden we have a lot going on right here in Cleveland these days. The Browns are surging after knocking off the defending SB champs and now the Hoodie in successive games, and your Cleveland Cavaliers are in first place. I’m not here to tell you the Browns will or will not surge […]

Our friend Josh Wilson scores 43

Over the last handful of months, our guy Josh Wilson has been providing a look into what life overseas as a professional basketball player is like for us here on these very blogwaves.  In case you hadn’t heard, his season’s starting out a little better than the Cavaliers one is too. Josh scored 43 the other night, and is rapidly emerging as […]

A Good Loss?

40 first quarter points given up. 14 turnovers compared to our opponents 7. They had almost double the number of assists we had. We had two guys tally 12 points or more – they had 5. Yet going into the 4th quarter of last night’s game, we only trailed by one point. One. Having looked […]

A career night for The Hickson

J.J. Hickson shot sixty-five percent from the field against Atlanta on Tuesday night on his way to a career high 31.  Sitting at 1-3 after a game in which the visiting squad scored 40 points in the opening session, this is something I am going to chose to focus on, and be excited about.  How excited?  Well not MVP chanting excited, but […]

Cavs – Hawks: talent disparity glaring in 1st half, rally in 3rd, lose 100-88

Pregame thoughts I got down to the Cavs – Hawks game tonight in time for shoot-a-round, walked in as Coach Scott was finishing up his pregame comments.  Summary of said comments — Mo Williams is playing, Jamison isn’t.  Starting line-up as follows —  Hickson, Moon, AP, Sessions, Andy.  I have a funny feeling AP just might be […]
