The Cleveland Cavaliers have announced their decision to assign power forward Luke Harangody to the Canton Charge, the team’s NBDL affiliate.
Appearing in five games during the 2010-11 NBA season, Harangody has averaged 2.6 points on .455 shooting, 1.2 rebounds and 7.6 minutes of play. He was acquired during the 2010 NBA trade deadline, along with center Semih Erden, in exchange for a second-round draft selection via the Boston Celtics. He finished second in Notre Dame men’s basketball program history in both points (2,476) – second to former Cavalier Austin Carr – and rebounds (1,222).
This move likely signals that rookie power forward Tristan Thompson will be activated this Friday after missing the past two games with an ankle injury.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have dropped 4 games in a row. I guess you can say Cleveland is on a losing streak. The Cavs have been guilty of turning the ball over and making bad decisions passing the ball. Tonight if Cleveland is going to win against the New York Knicks they simply have to stop making mistakes. Sure the Cavaliers are a young team with Rookies Kyrie Irving and Tristan...
[Anderson Varejao] brings a toughness here and it’s contagious. It was contagious throughout the entire game, even through our bench. 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...
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...

The Cleveland Cavaliers are encouraging fans to get healthy in 2012 during the NBA FIT Live Healthy Week in conjunction with the team's "Fit as a Pro" program presented by Medical Mutual and Giant Eagle.
Knicks have not won at The Q since Nov. 29, 2006, a streak spanning nine games.
Kyrie Irving scored 21 of his season-high 32 points in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough as the Cavaliers fell to the Nets, 99-96, on Friday night at The Q. Antawn Jamison added 20 points in the loss.
Looking disorganized on offense and disinterested on defense, the Cavaliers lost to the New Jersey Nets on Friday night at The Q, 99-96, despite a career high 32 points from rookie Kyrie Irving.
