Ball Don't Lie:
On December 20, NBA journeyman Earl Barron was cut by the Portland Trail Blazers. Last Friday, he was signed by the Golden State Warriors. Ball Don't Lie has obtained a copy of a letter to his sister Candace back home in Victorian England. They have communicated before.

It has been a trying time as I try to reclaim our family's lost standing in the Americas. When I left England more than eight years ago to pursue employment in the basketballing arts, I knew that I might undergo all manner of petty embarrassments.

The Cavs and Warriors were knotted early in the fourth quarter, but Golden State's David Lee took over down the stretch, handing the Wine and Gold the 105-95 loss in their return to The Q. Antawn Jamison led Cleveland with 19 points.
Finally. After what felt like an eternity (but was really 13 days) away from Cleveland, the Cavaliers (6-6) return home to take on the Golden State Warriors (4-8).
