The Cleveland Cavaliers just completed their first, and only, back-to-back-to-back of the season. Three games in as many nights isn't easy for anybody, and due to the lockout shortened season, every NBA team was stuck with one of those this year. Watching guys limp and hobble out of the locker room on Sunday night it certainly looked like they felt it too. They're now back in action tonight in Detroit against the Pistons, but not before they did get one day off. Luke Harangody, however, doesn't get days off. Monday night's series clinching win for the Canton Charge over the Springfield Armor marked the fourth game in as many nights for Luke Harangody. This recent back-to-back-to-back-TO-BACK stretch for Gody included three games against the Armor on April 13th, 15th, and 16th, as well as Saturday's epic showdown with the Washington Wizards. Harangody scored 16, 26, and 7 points in each of those three NBDL playoff games, for an average of 16.3 points per game. The...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday afternoon that they have brought Luke Harangody back up to the big club from the D-League’s Canton Charge. Harangody, who had a huge game filling in for Antawn Jamison in Washington last weekend, was in the middle of helping the Charge in the D-League Playoffs, but will now finish out the season with the Cavaliers. The 6’7″ forward...
Dan Coughlin wrote a blog for Stepien Rules on Friday. I really can't explain how honored I am by that development without sounding real sentimental and dorky, so I'll just say that I remain very grateful for his time on that. When traditional media was the unequivocal king of sports talk in this town, Dan Coughlin was the star of stars. He still is too. Wherever he goes...
CLEVELAND -- Random observations from the Cavaliers' 103-87 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday at The Q:
The Cavs (20-41) have won just three of their past 17 games. Several of the losses have been downright despicable. In Charlotte, these results might not be big deal. But in a sports-starved town like Cleveland, it can hurt.
So who and what is to blame? Well, it's only...
I’m furious with the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-40, 13th in the East). And I hate being mad at the Cavaliers. I love this franchise and I can’t wait for the day when they return to the playoffs and give us fun, rewarding, exciting, meaningful basketball to watch.
What we got last night was the polar opposite of that. The Cavaliers lost by 39 points to a team that was 22-38 going...
That’s more like it. It may seem funny feeling ok about a 16 point loss, but in this game the Cavaliers came out and showed some fight, taking just a 4 point deficit into the locker room at the half. Jrue Holliday went off in the 3rd and the Sixers’ talent overtook the Cavaliers, but the Cavaliers at least played hard in this game and showed some pride and spirit in the way they...
Guard Kyrie Irving wants to get back on the court. He's missed the last 10 games with the injury.
Cavs coach Byron Scott said Irving probably won't face the Pistons on Tuesday. He said there's a better chance of Irving playing against Philadelphia on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena.
When the season ends on April 26 at Chicago, Scott will sit down with all the players...
Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving is back in the starting lineup after missing nine straight games with a shoulder injury.
Irving hasn't played since April 3 when he re-injured his shoulder. The NBA's presumptive rookie of the year will start Wednesday night as the Cavaliers, playing their seventh game in nine nights, host the Philadelphia 76ers. Cavs coach Byron Scott...
Last night marked the fifth game in six nights for Cavaliers Forward Luke Harangody. That six game stretch included a 16 point, 10 rebound, double/double during the first start of his NBA career against the Washington Wizards, as well as a four game back-to-back-to-back-to-back which no other player in the NBA or NBDL has completed this season besides Gody. I don't know that...
If you can’t something nice, don’t say anything at all.
I should adhere to that advice right now. I haven’t been this frustrated with a Cavaliers game since Game 5 of that infamous Celtics series. But a shout out to Antawn Jamison for the 0-10 night from the field. Pretty impressive.
Cavaliers play again tomorrow. Can’t wait.
Maybe the Cavaliers should have kept Luke Harangody around for this game, too.
On paper, the Cavaliers should have had a chance in this game. With Dwight Howard already out for this game with an injury, his backup Big Baby Davis went down with injury early in this contest. That should have cracked the door open for the Cavaliers to play a tough game and sneak out a win.
The Cavaliers aren’t really tanking by choice as can be proven by this victory. The Cavaliers won by nine with a starting rotation including Luke Harangody. Well, maybe someone else is just tanking harder.
A couple weeks back, when I first addressed the concept of “tanking” to point out that the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-39, 13th in the East) were entering a stretch of brutal games with key players injured, I wrote that I felt the worst (or best, I guess, depending on your point of view) the Cavaliers could likely finish is 4th worst.
The Cavaliers currently sit 5th worst in the...

While the Cleveland Cavaliers have said they believe Kyrie Irving will play before the season ends, it won't be against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.
Irving, the league's potential Rookie of the Year, has missed the last eight games with a sprained right shoulder. While the Cavaliers have seven games left and are playing mostly for pride, coach Byron Scott said Irving...
