Found January 24, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

The Cavaliers got a nice off their bench as Samardo Samuels (15), Ramon Sessions (10), Daniel Gibson (8), and Alonzo Gee (7) combined for 40 points, but Chris Bosh was just too much in the 4th quarter stretch for the Cavaliers to handle as they fell on the road to the Heat. The Cavaliers still deserve a lot of credit for coming out and playing great defense and giving good effort in hanging in there with the Heat. A late Kyrie Irving 3 closed the gap to three, but Bosh and Chalmers made their  free throws to allow the Heat to close out with the win.

Christian Eyenga Returns to Practice

The Cavaliers made the decision at the beginning of the year that swingman Christian Eyenga needed more work and opportunities to play than he would get in Cleveland. So they did what was expected and sent him to the D-League Canton Charge affiliate. Coach Scott said publicly that he wanted Eyenga to work on his defense, and I’m sure the whole organization would appreciate if...

Video: Dan Gilbert may have Tweeted something that made absolutely no sense

We don't know why Cleveland Cavalier owner Dan Gilbert's Twitter account posted a strange picture on his feed sometime late on Wednesday night. We do know that, whether that was his artful and William Eggleston-take on a middling life spent in hotel rooms, or the odd work of some Twitter hacker, we loved the shot. Even if it's since been deleted. A random shot of something...

Irving: Varejao’s Toughness is Contageous

The bench is just as important as the starters, so it feels good to win. [...] I wasn’t really focused on my offense. I just wanted to help out my teammates. I only attempted six shots tonight and I have no problem doing that. I get my teammates...

Cavaliers-Heat Preview

Miami and Cleveland will forever be linked by LeBron James' decision to abandon his hometown Cavaliers and bolt to South Beach in the summer of 2010.

In a game that is generating significantly less buzz than last season, James and the Heat look to...

LeBron says Kyrie Irving reminds him of the young Chris Paul

Don’t call Kyrie Irving another LeBron James just because he’s also a Cleveland No. 1 pick. But if you want to call him another Chris Paul, that might be OK.
