WFNY’s preview of the Cavs and Hawks series for the second round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready for more basketball. These five days off are great for the Cavaliers, but torture for fans. The exciting thing is that, if the Cavaliers are going to be in the Finals, then we are at the halfway point of the playoffs.

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Every year we celebrate Christmas with my mom’s side of the family on the Sunday before Christmas. So pretty much every year, rather than drive up there on that Sunday, then drive back to Columbus for a couple days of work, only to turn around and go back to my parents’ place
Apparently Cleveland’s “letdown factor” has led to a bit of numbness as Atlanta, Georgia tops this year’s edition of Most Miserable Sports Cities as constructed by Forbes. So, just how did Atlanta—with it’s stretch of post-season play and general transient population—get the nod? We grade the misery of major sports cities (only those with 75
With the news of Varjao’s surgery combined with injury absences for CJ Miles and Daniel Gibson, this looked like it might be a rough night for the Cavaliers. Instead, we got one of the most inspired efforts from the Cavaliers this season as they came away with a really nice win against Atlanta. Kyrie Irving
One more road game and November will merciful drift away into our memories. The Cleveland Cavaliers (3-12, 13th in the East) travel to Atlanta where they will try to say farewell to a trying and disappointing opening month by trying to upset the soaring Hawks (9-4, 4th in the East). The combination of injuries and

For anyone that remembers my last Cavs game preview, let me reiterate: “first and foremost, my apologies to any and all of you hoping for an Andrew novella in preview to this game. A lot of times when you go to a pinch hitter late in a game, you have to talk yourself into thinking
Yesterday we touched on how Leon Powe can help the Cavaliers by giving them some depth at the power forward. The issue there, however, is that Powe is currently rehabbing his knees after tearing his left ACL and having microfracture surgery. Even though the Cavaliers signed him now, they know he will not be able
Generally I don’t raise my eyebrows at NBA trade rumors too much. This time of the year, you usually get so many names tossed into the ring that after a while, it all becomes a bunch of white noise. It seems like about 75% of the rumors thrown out there are generally unrealistic anyway, so
The Cavaliers sweep again! This game wasn’t pretty by any means, but the Cavaliers escape with the win and with the double digit victory streak intact. The 84-74 series clinching victory may not go down in history as one of the most memorable Cavalier games, but several aspects of it truly were memorable. What follows
Another home game, another blowout. Thursday night the Cleveland Cavaliers used an unbelievably suffocating defense to shut down the Atlanta Hawks offense, and the Cavs ran away with the 105-85 victory. The Cavaliers’ biggest worry now goes from rust to over-confidence. At 6-0 and yet to be tested in the playoffs, the Cavaliers are still
The Cleveland Cavaliers picked up right where they left off in round one of the 2009 NBA Playoffs and had their way with the Atlanta Hawks in Game One by a final score of 99-72. A good omen for the Cavaliers? It is when you consider that no team has ever come back to win
