Waiting For Next Year:
Too little, too late. I’m sensing a theme, here. The Cavaliers come out flat, play poorly for much of the game, make a furious 2nd half comeback, only to fall just short at the end.
Antawn Jamison tried to carry the load early as Kyrie Irving had an awful first half. To his credit, as he is prone to do, Irving recovered and had an enormous 2nd half. If the Cavaliers are going to snap this losing streak, they need Irving to stop looking to set up everyone else early and to come out aggressive and looking to score from the start. Until that happens, I suspect we’ll see more games like this.
As it is, the losing streak now stands at 6. Now it’s off to Denver on Wednesday.

Kyrie Irving has opted to not play with the Australian national team in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Irving, born in Austrailia, has dual-citizenship, thus having the opportunity to represent the nation in the upcoming summer Olympics. Instead, the first-overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft is opting to hold out in hopes of representing America in 2016 under the tutelage of his former...
Cavaliers hope to fare better against Utah this time around
The Cleveland Cavaliers (13-22, 10th in the East) can officially kiss the playoffs goodbye. Not many felt the Cavaliers could actually make the playoffs to begin with, but the Anderson Varejao injury just made things that much more difficult. Now the Cavaliers find themselves on season high 5 game losing streak and everything...

The Cleveland Cavaliers played the Utah Jazz tonight and they lost. This makes the sixth loss in a row for the Cleveland Cavaliers, thus making the losing streak the longest of the season so far. Last year the Cleveland Cavaliers lost 26 in a row. The team certainly doesn’t need to revisit that again. The Cavaliers have seemed to have lost their spark.
Coach Byron Scott said someone...
The Cleveland Cavaliers extended their losing streak last night losing to the Washington Wizards by three points 101-98. Coach Byron Scott tried a new starting line-up with hopes of snapping the losses. The Cavaliers started Alonzo Gee and Ryan Hollins with hopes of bringing back a win. The Wizards were just a little better than Cleveland last night with the play of guys like Jordan...
The Cleveland Cavaliers have assigned guard/forward Christian Eyenga and forward Luke Harangody to the Canton Charge of the D-League.
It took me all of yesterday to get over that last shot from Anthony Parker on Saturday night. The first time he took and missed that buzzer beater against the Celtics I understood it. I defended the fact that he took it, and gave him a pass for missing. Doc Rivers only left Anthony Parker open in that 86-83 loss, and Kyrie Irving was covered by everybody. AP didn't really need...
The postseason possibilities are fading. The talent gap is widening.
With Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott attempting to find the right combination of players and the schedule only getting increasingly more difficult in the coming weeks, what was once a dream is slowly becoming a delusion. On the tails of a reeling and aging Boston Celtics team prior to the All-Star break...
Former Cavaliers big man and current special assistant to Chris Grant Zydrunas Ilgauskas will be spending a lot of time with current Cleveland power forward Tristan Thompson come this off-season.
Prior to the team’s loss to the Utah Jazz, the team stated that the long-time center will work with the very raw Thompson, hopefully expanding an offensive arsenal that is rooted mostly...
Kyrie Irving had to clarify remarks he made Monday night on Mike Krzyzewski’s future with the U.S. Olympic basketball program. The Cavaliers franchise point guard and #1 pick in the #NBA draft this past June, had to back off earlier made comments by saying he spoke prematurely in saying Krzyzewski would coach the 2016 U.S. Olympic team.
“I spoke to Coach K (and) he did tell...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jordan Crawford scored 31 points and John Wall added 24 to lead the Washington Wizards to a 101-98 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
Antawn Jamison scored 29 in his return to Washington but missed a 3-point attempt to tie the game with 35 seconds to play. It was Jamison's first appearance in the Verizon Center since being traded from...
Head coach Byron Scott mixed up the lineups on Friday night against the lowly Washington Wizards but unfortunately for Cavs fans, the end result was still the same as Cleveland dropped its fifth straight game. Ryan Hollins and Alonzo Gee got the start in place of Omri Casspi and Semih Erden. Amazingly, this was Antawn Jamison’s first game at the Verizon Center since he was traded...
