Then, as the bench came in late in the first and
It’s no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers have been getting virtually nothing from their bench through the first 15 games. But, just how bad is it? Is it worse than it appears on the surface? Is it a problem that can be fixed in-house or self-correct with time and familiarity? Is a mid-season upgrade necessary?

Tristan will get paid, it’ll just be a bit before it happens.
Cleveland Cavaliers: 114 Chicago Bulls: 108 (Overtime) Box Score After a disappointing opening night where LeBron James and everybody played pretty tight, the Cavaliers had an incredibly formidable task on their hands: going into Chicago against their biggest threat in the Eastern Conference and trying to come out with a win.

Pre-season basketball just needs to end. There might be a real basketball game to talk about. Alas, this is what we’ve got. Tristan Thompson was being very strange in a pre-game interview with FSO reporter Allie Clifton. He might have been fulfilling a dare or a bet or doing some kind of inside joke that
Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt announced that LeBron James will sit out tonight’s preseason game versus the Milwaukee Bucks.
