Cavaliers-varejao-reacts
The Cleveland Cavaliers lost another game this time they fell to the Phoenix Suns 91-78. As the head-line said, Cavs coach Byron Scott gave a lot of credit for the hard play of Anderson Varejao and said the rest of the team sucked. The Cavaliers have had the saem problem all season so far, the rest of the team isn’t showing the same kind of hustle as Varejao they need to step back and take a lesson from the wild thing, he is playing at a whole new level. The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t been playing good team basketball the bench is not contributing the way Scott would like to see it and the starters are incapable of providing sound defense. The Cleveland Cavaliers have to find a way to play defense, even when they are in the game they can’t stop their opponents from scoring in the 4th quarter. The Phoenix Suns outplayed the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second half last night. If the Cavs only had one more guy like Varejao they could do something this season. If someone doesn’t step up...

Anderson Varejao: Cleveland’s “All-Star Guy”

The elections may be long in the rear view, but the lobbying in Cleveland may be reaching new levels. As the Cavaliers dropped yet another nail-biter to one of the NBA’s elite teams, it was Anderson Varejao who continued to keep his bruised and battered team on the positive side of the ledger, pulling down 22 more rebounds, obtaining possession of balls which he had no business...

Wild times for the Wild Thing

One month into the season, Anderson Varejao is All-Star worthy. "He's the best center in the NBA right now; by far the best in the Eastern Conference," said Cavaliers coach Byron Scott. Even if you don't entirely agree with Varejao's coach, it's hard to argue with the numbers. The 6-foot-11 wild man is averaging a career-high 14.5 points. He leads the...

Anderson Varejao should win the NBA's Most Improved this season

Anderson Varejao should be an All-Star. We've been over this. He's a 14 and 14 guy who's playing out of his mind every night even though it's completely obvious his team will lose before each game ever begins. Maybe that effort will be rewarded with a trip to Houston for ASW. Maybe it won't. Regardless, I do think Varejao does deserve the NBA's Most...

Byron Scott Thinks All The Cavs Except One Player Sucked Last Night

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a paltry 3-12 and Tuesday night’s loss to the Suns didn’t make matters any better. The only bright spot has been the Cavs center, who is having a fairly incredible season which is not going unnoticed by his coach. Byron opened his Tuesday presser with a simple and very true statement: “Andy Varejao was fantastic. Everybody else sucked tonight...

Box Score: Cavaliers 78, Grizzlies 84

This one stings a bit. The Memphis Grizzlies, without starting PG Mike Conley, came out torching the Cavaliers’ defense on their first few possessions. It looked like it could be a predictably rough game. But then Anderson Varejao went to work. Andy started rebounding like a man possessed and ignited the Cavaliers to take the first quarter lead. In fact, the Cavaliers would win...

Byron Scott on Anderson Varejao: “He’s the best center in the NBA”

No doubt about it, Anderson Varejao of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been playing some inspired basketball; he’s averaging 14.5 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game. But the best center in the NBA? “To me, he’s the best center in the NBA,” Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said. “He’s by far the best in the [...]The post Byron Scott on Anderson Varejao: “He’s the...

Schedule stinks, but Cavs must find a way

CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers are entering dangerous territory, the kind that can cause a team to lose a grip on the buying public way too soon in a season. That's not a criticism. It's a harsh reality. The latest example came Tuesday, a 91-78 embarrassment against a Phoenix team that isn't very good. Did we mention the game was at home? Did we mention the Cavs blew...

Box Score: Suns 91, Cavaliers 78

The Cavaliers were playing the 2nd night of a back to back and their 4th game in 5 days. And they played like it, too. Not a whole lot to say about this one. The Cavaliers, without guards Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson, were simply flat from start to finish. Lost in all the gloom and monotony of this game was another great double-double effort from Anderson Varejao who finished with...

Is Byron Scott Heading Down The Manny Acta Path?

Full disclosure, I am not an NBA guy. I often use the hashtag #NBAFree on twitter when discussing my love for the college game. I hope the Cavaliers do well, but I can’t say that I watch the games or intently read the articles the way I do with the Browns and the Indians. I simply see the tweets throughout the day, check out the boxscores, and move on. But I stayed informed. Last...

Suns ride strong defensive effort to win in Cleveland

CLEVELAND -- The Phoenix Suns, in the midst of their longest road trip of the season, stumbled Sunday in Philadelphia, but they rebounded in a big way Tuesday.
