They shared the ball well. They were able to make shots — they made a lot of shots tonight. We contested them. I think we did a pretty good job on the defensive end.
– Cleveland Cavaliers Dion Waiters, Tuesday night, after his team gave up a season-worst 124 points (on 51.2 percent shooting) in a loss to the Sacramento Kings. The Kings (14-24) score an average of 97.7 points per game. In the contest, Waiters scored a game- and career-high 33 points (12-of-18 shooting) off of the bench, adding five assists. Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott labeled it as “one of those games on the defensive end we couldn’t stop them.” The 9-31 Cavaliers have now lost three straight contests and play on Wednesday in Portland.

When Dion Waiters has a night like this, it gives you hope.
Yes, the Cavaliers dumped a 124-118 decision to the host Sacramento Kings on Monday night. Yes, they treated defense like some sort of nasty shellfish allergy. And yes, the Cavs were swept by a team that has one eye on the door, as the franchise gears for a move out of town.
But Waiters, man, that was something else.

The whispers surrounding the worst kept secret amongst NBA circles are growing increasingly louder.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott believes that Kyrie Irving has a chance to become the NBA’s best floor general. However, the prequisiste is for him to pick up the phone according to Bryon Scott. Scott is pushing Irving to connect with CP3 next summer, figuring it could only help push Kyrie’s game to the next level if he worked out with Paul.
With the Cleveland Cavaliers struggling with a 9-30 record, good for second-worst in the league, there are very few bright spots to be seen. One being Kyrie Irving, a future superstar who’s making his case for being a top-3 point guard in just his second season in the NBA. Another is the performance of veteran center Anderson Varejao, although he’s been affected by a barrage...

Smh. This is insane, and I like Varejao but super over the top. Try again, Cleveland.

As far as this season goes, the Cavaliers are a mystery from night to night and not a team you can pick to win. When they put four quarters together, theyre actually pretty enjoyable and have a chance against anyone. But that happens about twice a month. Otherwise, they need to rely on their opponent not playing well. Tonight, theyre playing a similar team in the Kings...
