Beyond The Buzzer:
Wednesday night’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Miami Heat matchup with a tip-off time of 7:00 PM (ET) in Cleveland was delayed due to a reported leak from the Quicken Loans Arena scoreboard.
According to a tweet from Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, “Scoreboard is leaking fluid on to floor.We need to lower scoreboard to fix. Never seen this one before. Going to be several minutes to fix.”
While lowering the scoreboard, a repeated “beep, beep, beep” alarm rang through the arena and it was estimated to take 15 minutes to fix while players waited in their respected locker rooms. Cavs’ mascot, Moondog, tried to provide some comic relief, and walked around the arena with an umbrella.
UPDATE: According to a tweet from Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio, the scoreboard issue was determined to be “‘condensation from CO2 tank.’ Cavs have had scoreboard since 2007, say they have never experienced this.”
The game finally tipped off at 7:45 PM.

Cleveland Cavaliers rookie shooting guard Dion Waiters will miss at least the next week with an injury to his left knee.
Waiters was examined earlier on Tuesday and was determined — via MRI – to have small, loose cartilage fragement. He will undergo a period of tests and treatment while being subject to additional observations and examination. Following one week’s time, he...
In the wake of losing shooting guard Dion Waiters to a knee injury, the Cleveland Cavaliers have signed veteran guard Chris Quinn for the remainder of the NBA season.
The signing of Quinn marks the 28th Gatorade Call-Up (via NBDL) of the 2012-13 season. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not announced. Quinn will wear No. 20 for the Cavaliers and be active for...
His teammates called him "Elvis" because of his fame. They laughed when he donned a wig and sunglasses so he could walk around a mall without being noticed.
Yes, LeBron James was big news when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers 10 years ago, But could anybody have envisioned back then the prodigy from Akron, Ohio, would end up being this legendary of a player?
As a skinny...
Goodness, Cleveland. Have you no pride? The Cleveland Cavaliers were up as many as 27 points against the unstoppable Miami Heat in the Quicken Loans Arena last night, before they eventually rolled over and died. The Heat won their 24th consecutive game – nine games shy of the NBA record set by the 1971-72 World Champion Los Angeles Lakers – as they ripped off a 45-14 run to overcome...
I mentioned Dion Waiters twice this week in my Bleacher Report articles.
On Monday, I considered him for the All-Second Half team before dismissing Waiters and others who aren't playing meaningful games at the moment.
I also ranked Waiters 10th on Tuesday among all NBA players with college eligibility remaining. The only other members of the 2012 Draft Class I had slotted...
It wasnt long ago many on the Miami Heat were seemingly counting the days until the April 20 start of the playoffs.
Little did they know that come March, every game would feel like a playoff.
The same team that amazingly has reeled off 24 straight wins had a number of lackluster efforts early in the season. They lost, egads, at Washington and Detroit. They fell twice to New York...
It would have been poetic if the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers had been able to beat LeBron James and the Heat in Cleveland to stop Miami's winning streak at 23--would have been.
At one time down by 27 points, the Heat overcame their largest deficit of the season to go on to win 98-95.
For a time it looked like they were going to be able to do just that after a 23-3 run...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are about to play another game in Cleveland.
That's what a 23-game winning streak will do for a team.
It mutes even the LeBron-Goes-Home-Again hype.
Someday the Heat will lose another basketball game. Maybe even Wednesday night, when the reigning NBA champions drop by James' old neighborhood to take on James' old team, which happens...
By most accounts, LeBron James is 6-8, 270 lbs. Jason Terry is a modest 6-2, 180 lbs. I would expect James to dunk over Terry 100 out of 100 times.
So… why the hell is the NBA blogosphere still buzzing about James’ dunk from last night?
I thought we saw the end of this silliness when Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski lauded Brandon Knight for challenging this DeAndre Jordan highlight...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a remixed clip of DeAndre Jordan's dunk on Brandon Knight using audio of WWE announcer Jim Ross freaking out.Now, LeBron James dunk over Jason Terry has received the Jim Ross treatment and it is hilarious:
Boston Celtics Stirring Effort Not Enough in Loss to Miami Heat The Boston Celtics didn't deserve to lose on Monday night and they know it. Even the Miami Heat, a team celebrating their 23-game winning streak, knows they should have their heads down in defeat. Once again though it was turnovers that killed the Celtics off. They had an 18-point lead in the first quarter. They...
