The Bowling Alley that Saved the Cavs’ Season


With the way their season ended in mid-June — within a few lucky bounces and a bad performance from healthy eventual champion Golden State Warriors — it’s hard to remember where the Cleveland Cavaliers were in early January.

Canton among cities that have applied to host NFL Draft

hall of fame canton

In the recent Draft Day movie, for all of its known quirks, my favorite guffaw might have been the mention of Canton in the early goings. The movie erroneously said “Canton is just 20 miles from Cleveland.” That’s just not true. It’s 60 miles. Maybe 50 to the Hall of Fame. But, despite that factual

Box Score: Lakers 94, Cavaliers 100

What a night for Cleveland sports. First, Kyrie Irving came back for the Cavaliers. Then, while the game was going on, the Indians made what appears to be a stellar trade. And then, just for good measure, the Cavaliers beat the Lakers. It was evident from the beginning just how much Irving was missed. Kyrie

Kyrie Irving

Life without Kyrie Irving has not been fun. It was hard. How hard? The Cleveland Cavaliers (4-17, 13th in the East) went 2-9 without him. Sure, the Cavaliers are 2-8 with him, so there’s no evidence of the team being worse without him. But if you watched the 11 games he missed, you know the

It was a rough weekend for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they dropped both of their games Friday and Saturday night. The Cavaliers showed us two very different types of losses, though.

No Kyrie, no problem? Cavs fans were stunned to find out just moments before tipoff that Kyrie Irving would miss the game with a concussion. Everyone was eager for a Kyrie-CP3 matchup, but instead it was Ramon Sessions who provided a monster game in leading the Cavaliers to a huge win. Sessions had 24 points,

Vetting the Indians’ Bullpen

It seems to be fairly accepted wisdom that the Indians were not good last season.  There’s an advanced sabermetric statistic that does a nice job of conveying this. It’s called “losses”, and the Indians had 93 of them. But, for whatever reason, the Indians actually had some pretty good results out of their bullpen in
