NBA Blog Previews: Southwest Division

 

It’s that time of year again. That time when NBA training camps get underway, preseason games are starting, and NBA previews are being made.

Other than the fact that an NBA season keeps seeming more and more unlikely, why should this year be any different? Sure, there’s no training camp and preseason, but that doesn’t mean NBA previews can’t still be done.

Things are just a little different this year. Rather than a true season preview, think of these as more of an offseason report. A state of the union address, if you will. [Read more...]

Cavaliers Preview Game #25

Cavaliers vs TimberwolvesCleveland Cavaliers (20-4) vs
Minnesota Timberwolves (4-20)
Target Center, Minneapolis, MN
Wednesday, December 17, 2008
8:00 PM EST
FSNOH/WTAM

The Cavaliers continue their mini road trip tonight when they head north to take on the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves. As far a road trips go, this one isn’t too bad. 4 games, none of them back to back, and 2 of them against a couple of the worst teams in the NBA (Minnesota and Oklahoma City). In fact, in the last 3 weeks of December, Cleveland has only 7 games, and none of them are back to back. There are a couple moderate tests in Miami in there, as well as tough games against Denver and Houston, which will make the easy games against Washington, Oklahoma City, and tonight’s opponent, Minnesota, that much more important for Cleveland to not get complacent and to take care of business. The Cavaliers will still be without the services of Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Daniel Gibson, and Minnesota has a couple tough offensive players in Mike Miller and Al Jefferson, but this is still a game the Cavaliers should be able to control. The Cavaliers are facing injuries, Delonte West and Wally Szczerbiak are slumping majorly with their outside shooting, LeBron’s minutes are rising, and the offense isn’t running as smoothly as it once was. There’s some adversity facing the Cavaliers tonight, and it will be a good sign for them to come out and take care of business against a team they should beat.     [Read more...]

Central Division Preview

This is it. This is what we’ve been waiting so patiently for. The Cleveland Cavaliers kick off the 2008-09 season tonight in Boston against the Celtics. We’ve been running division previews for the last month, and now we’re to the division you really care about, the Central Division. Will the Pistons win the division yet again and maintain their supremacy over the rest of us, or is the year the Cavaliers finally take the throne? Lets get to it…     [Read more...]

Southeast Division Preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers played their first preseason game at home on October 7th against the Toronto Raptors and their first regular season game is October 28th against the Celtics in Boston. That gives us a less than a month until the season is officially underway, and so we will use the next week or two previewing the NBA season making predictions that will surely not even be remotely close to coming true.

Next up is the Eastern Conference, and we continue with the Southeast Division.    [Read more...]
