Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: Trees falling without making a sound

Don’t get me wrong…that was a fun game. The Cavaliers played some of the best team basketball we’ve seen this group play as they came out and just crushed the Pistons 122-100. But as fun as it was, it unfortunately didn’t matter. The Pistons quit a long time ago. They’re the same team who played

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: A game-winner for Dion

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

NBA Rookie Rankings: The Brow Returns, Beal Enters the top 5

NBA: Preseason-Washington Wizards at San Antonio Spurs

With the Cavaliers having two rookies playing prominent minutes, WFNY thought it would beneficial to see how the fresh meat around the league is faring in comparison with the Cavalier rookies. Each week, we’ll have NBA rookie power rankings where we’ll rack and stack the freshman class of the NBA. The rankings will be weighted with

Box Score: Cavaliers 79, Pistons 89

You knew this game would be tough to win, with the Cavaliers starting backcourt out with injuries and the Pistons playing good basketball as of late. For a while, that’s exactly what happened, with the Cavaliers falling behind by 20 points in the first half and trailing by 17 at the half. In the 4th

Box Score: Cavaliers 77, Pistons 116

If you can’t something nice, don’t say anything at all. I should adhere to that advice right now. I haven’t been this frustrated with a Cavaliers game since Game 5 of that infamous Celtics series. But a shout out to Antawn Jamison for the 0-10 night from the field. Pretty impressive. Cavaliers play again tomorrow.

Will Cavaliers and Pistons Try To Out-Tank Each Other Tonight?

Manny Harris

A couple weeks back, when I first addressed the concept of “tanking” to point out that the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-39, 13th in the East) were entering a stretch of brutal games with key players injured, I wrote that I felt the worst (or best, I guess, depending on your point of view) the Cavaliers could

Box Score: Pistons 87, Cavaliers 75

That was….better? The Cavaliers at least defended better and Kyrie Irving was really aggressive in trying to top Brandon Knight. But beyond that, the Cavaliers offense was pretty horrible in this game and the Pistons more or less were able to just coast to victory. Alonzo Gee was simply destroyed by Tayshaun Prince in this

Cavaliers vs Pistons: Let the Tanking Begin!

TANKING!!!

Welcome to Tank Fest 2012! Ok, so no, I don’t think the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-30, 10th in the East) are actually tanking. Or, shall I say, losing on purpose. I believe Byron Scott is trying to get his team to play well, and I believe the players are (mostly) trying their hardest to win. But

Box Score: Pistons 100, Cavaliers 101

Fascinating game. Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Cavaliers not named Antawn Jamison were sleep walking through 3 quarters. But in the 4th quarter, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee took over this game. The Cavaliers outscored the Pistons 35-23 in the 4th quarter to pull out a nice comeback win. I remember plenty of

Cavaliers’ Rematch with Pistons An Important One

Samardo punished the Pistons frontcourt last game

Welcome back Manny Harris! Forget all the other story lines, the big news in this game is the return of Manny Harris to the wine and gold, right? Right? Basketball is funny. I don’t know why, but there always marginal players out there who become my guys. They come in different shapes and sizes, but

Cavaliers Look To Bounce Back Against the Pistons

Game One for the Cleveland Cavaliers was one to forget. Wednesday night, the Cavaliers (0-1) head up to the Palace to take on the Detroit Pistons (0-1) in the battle of the Central Division’s two winless teams. There were plenty of eye opening issues with the Cavaliers in Game One. The first, and most obvious

Rasheed Wallace: LeBron is a Flopper

Rasheed Wallace picked up his 5th technical foul as the Celtics defeated the Raptors.  Wallace, who has never been able to control his temper, apparently takes no responsibility for getting techs anymore.  Instead it was because Hedo Turkoglu flopped while defending ‘Sheed.  That most certainly must have been the reason that Rasheed Wallace couldn’t control

The Cavs Better Replace John Kuester

I am not one of those people that just assumes that people can’t develop new skills.  For example, I recognize that Anderson Varejao has improved his offensive game over the last two years.  I also recognize that he could conceivably get even better at his mid-range jumper than he was this season.  But the reason

Pistons Offer No Resistance As Cavaliers Advance

The good news for the Cleveland Cavaliers is that they now have nothing but time on their hands as they sit back, relax, and wait to see whether Miami or Atlanta is coming to town next. The reason for this is that with their 99-78 dismantling of the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, the Cavaliers have

Game 3 A Dangerous Trap For Cavaliers

The only sure bet in life is that fools will always take the “sure” bet. After a solid win for the Cavaliers in Game 1 of their first round matchup with the Detroit Pistons, the Cavs followed that up with a thrashing of the Pistons for 3 quarters in Game 2 before making things interesting
