When we last met in the Cavalier Film Room, we talked about Kyrie Irving’s defense. This time, we’re finally going to get into some of David Blatt’s offense. I’m going to start with what has become pretty obvious: Kevin Love is a really good first quarter player. Not only is Love an excellent first quarter
The Cleveland Cavaliers played against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. That means that they played against the trash talking, always maligning, Hall of Fame-bound and sadly declining Kevin Garnett. Cavalier supporters have seen a lot of Garnett over the years, most notably during the Boston-Cleveland Conflict of 2007-2010. This, of course, included the beautful
Orlando Magic 74 Cleveland Cavaliers 106 [Box Score] I know what a lot of people are thinking. What’s the big deal? The Cavaliers are a much better team than the Orlando Magic. They’re supposed to win a game like this. But man, the Cavaliers needed this one. We heard all offense about how effective this
San Antonio Spurs (7-4) 92 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-5) 90 Box Score On the eve of tonight’s showdown with the San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers star and prodigal son LeBron James spent some time gushing over the team that, other than maybe the Boston Celtics, has been the biggest foil of his career. The Spurs, the
Boom Boom, Pau.
The Cleveland Cavaliers played like a turd sandwich in Portland last night, which is fitting since yesterday was Election Day.1 I don’t want to rehash the gory details of the game any more than I want to hand count voting ballots (Kirk handled that bit of dirty work), so in lieu of that, I want to look
Barring a huge trade, it appears that Anderson Varejao will be a Cleveland Cavalier for his entire NBA career.
Wild Thing rejoins the starting five.
A detailed, scientific, indisputable look at which members of the Cleveland Cavaliers are most likely to be thrown through the Spanish Announcer Table.
Analyzing the statistics on the soon-to-be-acquired power forward Where does Kevin Love rank in the NBA’s elite class? Confidently, I’d say he’s a top-12 player. In case you haven’t done this exercise in a while, it is indeed very difficult to rank NBA players. We know pretty well that the top three are LeBron James,
There appears to be quite a deal of confusion about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ salary cap situation. Let’s try to clear the air with some math, shall we? Just last week, GM David Griffin said the team could clear space for a max contract “just by waving our hand and making it happen.” Seems simple enough,
David Griffin has not shied away from the fact that his roster is due for some significant retooling this offseason. One player that could be traded due to a lack of fit moving forward is fourth-year power forward Tristan Thompson. Joe Kotoch of Probasketballdraft.com reports that this is a very real possibility. His veteran post
This will be the first in a few posts from me about my post-season Cavalier thoughts. Before I dive in, be sure to check out the great work from Ben, Andrew, and Jacob in their varying post-season thoughts and breakdowns. It was only this past weekend that I sat down and watched the majority of
I had a dream last night that the Cavaliers got into the playoffs and beat the Pacers in the first round of the playoffs. It was one of those ultra-realistic dreams, too. Like, the kind where even when you wake up and you know it was a dream, you still think it might have been
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
The date was July 8, 2004. It was a Thursday night, and the Cleveland Cavaliers were reeling. It seemed impossible, yet the outcome was simultaneously probable. Some would argue even likely. The Cavaliers took a major risk, and they were burned in a big way. It was that Thursday night when restricted free agent Carlos
Because masochism isn’t for everyone I hate winter. Seriously. I woke up today at 7:00 a.m., barely able to breath for the fifth straight day. I spent the next two minutes trying to vacate my nasal cavity of what I suspect was approximately a fetrick muckton of the crustiest boogers known to man. I then turned

After yet another surprising victory, the Cleveland Cavaliers have just one game left before the All-Star Break. And it’s against a familiar and troublesome opponent. Tonight, the Cavs (19-33) will look to achieve their first four-game winning streak since LeBron James played in Cleveland. They’ll attempt to do so in Detroit against the Pistons, who
The last 24 hours have been very Cleveland Cavaliers-heavy at ESPN.com. While Brian Windhorst was second to confirm Chris Grant’s firing, there also was a detailed article on Anthony Bennett’s next steps for growth. In a separate article focused on Bennett, ESPN.com’s Marc Stein also shared some rumblings about Luol Deng and the Cavs summer
