Cleveland Fried Hawk: Cavs vs. Hawks Behind the Box Score

BtBS_2014-15

Wow. I certainly didn’t expect to see the Cavaliers bring this type of effort against the Hawks at home on the second night of a back-to-back where they looked atrocious on defense. The Cavaliers put up one of the most impressive offensive displays these two eyes have ever seen. The Cavaliers end-to-end fricasseed the Hawks

BtBS_2014-15

In the early going of this season, I expected the Cavs to play down to some of their lesser opponents. I figure that if you’re going to keep the heavy underdog in it until the final two minutes, that team is going to find a way to pull out the win a decent chunk of

After reaching an offensive low point on Wednesday night in Utah when the wine and gold had a franchise-low six assists, the Cavaliers made a specific effort to share the basketball more effecitvely.

The Sundiata Spot: Cavs vs. Jazz Behind The Box Score

BtBS_2014-15

Oof. What a kick in the pills. After getting absolutely blasted by the Blazers last night, the Cavaliers came into Utah and turned in another putrid defensive performance. An impressive comeback from down 16 on the heels of James and Irving offensively came out just short as Gordon Hayward delivered the game-winning jumper as time

Perfect Ten Then Face-Plant: Cavs vs. Blazers Behind the Box Score

BtBS_2014-15

I think most of us rational fans anticipated some bumps in the road in the early part of this season. Opening night was an outlier, a once-in-a-lifetime atmosphere that could have short-circuited anyone. But, there’s no other way to describe the second half tonight other than the Blazers steamrolling the Cavaliers, particularly in the fourth

Defending the Cleveland Browns against uniform cheap shots

Cleveland Browns Jordan Cameron

Last week, FOX sports national posted a Buzzfeed-style flipbook of the NFL uniforms, ranking them 32-1.

Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Ryan Raburn, and Jason Giambi—four players who were all significant contributors on a 92-win playoff team last year that featured just twelve hitters1. This season, all four have spent time on the disabled list, and three of them have missed significant action2. So just how are the Cleveland Indians still standing and in the AL Wild
