Today should be a good day at WFNY, folks. We’ve got some of the new kids and infrequent writers in charge with Craig on vacation and Scott on a work trip. Hope you can put up with us for the day. Assorted Cavs-Spurs thoughts: The Cavs, a currently mediocre team, lost by two points to
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
In the latest NBA Power Rankings on ESPN, the Cavs are up to number six from number 14, which is good. But, they do point out something that is a bit troubling even as the Cavaliers are on a four-game winning streak and as LeBron James picked up Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors:
The Minnesota Timerberwolves are reportedly discussing a trade of veteran wing Corey Brewer to either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Houston Rockets. ESPN’s Marc Stein reported the news on Sunday afternoon. Brewer, 28, is an odd piece on the 2-7 Wolves who are limping to a slow start without the contributions of point guard Ricky Rubio.
We know a fair bit about how Kevin Love plays basketball. We know that he is a masterful rebounder and outlet passer. We know that he can shoot threes, and that he prefers them from the left wing. We know that he is patient in the post. “All the Small Things” aims to identify and
Looking for any additional reasons to not believe Sam Smith’s “report” on Kevin Love potentially opting out of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and signing with the Los Angeles Lakers? Look no further than the other 29 teams within the NBA who are apparently desperately rooting for the Wine and Gold’s ascension to the
[Stefon voice] …Kevin?
Happy Tuesday WFNY! As I was driving in to work this morning, I was surprised by how light the traffic was. I don’t normally have too much traffic to deal with, as I leave before the worst of it. But even relative to my normal traffic, it was really light this morning. It wasn’t until
WFNY’s Andrew Schnitkey already wrote the Behind the Box Score for Monday’s 118-111 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. But I thought I’d chime in this morning with a few additional stats notes on just how impressive the Cleveland Cavaliers offense was last night. The Cavs had a 128.0 offensive rating, per NBA.com/stats For context,
What goes around comes around.
New Orleans Pelicans 111 Cleveland Cavaliers 118 [Box Score] On Saturday, the New Orleans Pelicans went to San Antonio and knocked off the defending NBA Champions to move to 3-2 on the season. I only mention this because people might not realize that the Pelicans are not the same team of recent years. Time will
After a week on the road, the Cleveland Cavaliers return home tonight to face one of the most-discussed sleeper teams in the NBA, the New Orleans Pelicans. With Saturday’s road upset of the Spurs, Anthony Davis’ squad proved they’ll be a disruptive force this season. While being back home is nice, the style difference will
Isn’t this fun, you guys?
The 2014-2015 Cleveland Cavaliers, deemed by many the favorites for the NBA Championship, and deemed by many more to be title contenders, had a less than ideal 1-1 start. Then last week, the Trail Blazers humbled the Cavs in Portland 82-101 and the Utah Jazz escaped at the buzzer on a miraculous Gordon Hayward fadeaway
Apparently, it’s Kevin Love’s turn to get into the mix.
It’s going to be a long season, you guys.
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
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
It was early Saturday morning, November 1, not long after midnight on Halloween. A lot of Cleveland Cavaliers fans were either cozily sleeping in bed after a night of trick-or-treating with their children (perhaps looking forward to a relaxing day of college football in the morning) or slinking to the bar for one last drink,
Somewhere, Mike Brown is laughing.
