There are two separate ways you can look at this 4-3 start by the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of those ways is to say that the Cavaliers started with this exact same record through seven games last year only to then go on and redefine NBA awfulness and ineptitude from that point forward. The other way you can look at it, which is also supported by statistical data to some degree, is to instead say that the Cavs are currently on pace to win 37 of the 66 games they're slated to play this season. And to win all 37 of those games by double digit margins of victory too. I am going to wait until at least the Cavaliers come home after this seven game trip to start looking much more into all that. For now, I'm just enjoying the moment. That lay-up was awesome last night, Mr. Irving.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were beat by the Trial blazers last night. The Cavs looked all game long like they were 2 steps slow. Kyrie Irving the Cavaliers number one pick lead the way for Cleveland scoring 21 and Jamison came in with only 11, not the same Jamison we have seen of late. The rest of the Cavaliers team didn’t do much to help the cause. Portland couldn’t do much wrong...
Some thoughts on the Cavaliers heading into the weekend:
1. Well probably see a few more losses like the one Wednesday in Toronto, where the Cavs fell92-77. They looked tired and flat, and everything they tried just didnt work. Welcome to the NBA on the second night of a back-to-back.
2. In other words, this shouldnt have been a surprise, or be considered a major reason for concern...
The Cleveland Cavaliers improved to 4-3 last night with an impressive road win over the young and improving Minnesota Timberwolves. Byron Scott’s club methodically ground down the Wolves over the first three plus quarters, building an 18 point lead in the fourth and cruising comfortably to their second road win of the season. The Cavaliers took the lead in the final minute of the...
Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving remains one of the league's most impressive newcomers.
Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams were the top picks in last year's draft, but the potential matchup to watch Friday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Minnesota Timberwolves is between Irving and Ricky Rubio.
Irving and Rubio are the top rookies in assists per game heading into their first meeting at the Target Center.

To steal a line from a famous Chinese Proverb, the journey is the reward. The Chinese philosopher who first coined that phrase and never got any credit for it wasn't talking about these Cleveland Cavaliers specifically, but he could've been. Or she could've been. Tuesday's win over the Bobcats was fun. Couple that with the fact that it was the second time these...
