Six Kings players reached double figures, as the offense produced the victory. The Kings surrendered a season-high 128 to the Miami Heat in a loss Saturday night. Cleveland entered the game averaging 94.4 points. The Kings did a solid job on Cleveland's second-year point guard Kyrie Irving, who was limited to a 15 point on 6-of-19 shooting. Defending Waiters was another story. The fourth pick of the 2012 draft was close to unstoppable no matter the def...

Dion Waiters: “I think we did a pretty good job on the defensive end”

They shared the ball well. They were able to make shots — they made a lot of shots tonight. We contested them.

Waiters shines on otherwise lost night

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.

Why I'm not worried about the shots that Dion Waiters is missing

Dion Waiters came off the Cavaliers' bench last night to attempt 18 field goals in 26 minutes. He made seven, finished with 15 points and the Cavs lost to the Lakers by 20 in Los Angeles.

Dirk gets shut down by old-man security guard

It's pretty funny to see this guy's attempt at being a hard-ass without cracking a smile while Dirk dicks around with him. Being a Kings security guard can't be an easy task -- I'm sure they're always on high alert because DeMarcus Cousins could snap at any time and choke anyone in the building. It was pretty funny that both announcers noted the security guard...

Four reasons to keep Cavs on radar

Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller.
