Opposing Teams to Kyrie Irving: “No Paint for You!”

The tape may be out. Forty-two games in to his NBA career, opposing defenses are starting to clamp down on rookie point guard Kyrie Irving.

A...

Cavaliers vs 76ers: Battle of the Post-All Star Break Blues

I’m not sure if there is such a thing as dog days of spring or not, but if there is, you could arguably say the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-29, 10th in the East) are there. The excitement of trade deadline has passed, the thought of the Cavaliers making the playoffs has long passed, injuries to Anderson Varejao and Daniel Gibson, along with the trade of Ramon Sessions has left the...

Cleveland.com: On bringing Antawn back next year

I wrote an article yesterday at Cleveland.com in support of the very real possibility that the Cleveland Cavaliers could bring Antawn Jamison back next season once his $15 million contract expires at the end of this one. At a reasonable contract number, with Antawn coming off the bench, I not only think it makes some sense for this team moving forward, but I also think there'...

Box Score: Pistons 87, Cavaliers 75

That was….better? The Cavaliers at least defended better and Kyrie Irving was really aggressive in trying to top Brandon Knight. But beyond that, the Cavaliers offense was pretty horrible in this game and the Pistons more or less were able to just coast to victory. Alonzo Gee was simply destroyed by Tayshaun Prince in this game, and that’s really what set the tone for the rest...
