The Cavs played hard last night but they were ice cold shooting hitting only 36.7% from the floor. Kyrie Irving led the way for the Cavs last night with 21 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal in 29 minutes on the floor. Omri Casspi (10 points and 1 assist), Tristan Thompson (10 points, 5 rebounds and 3 blocked shots) and Anderson Varejao (8 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot) also pitched in for the Cavs last night. The Cavaliers are now 4-4 on the year.

AROUND THE WEB
I’m just trying to clear my head and play the game. I can’t control if [the shots] go in or out. I’m taking good shots, I’m not forcing them, I’m taking what the defense gives me. It’s hard on me. I’m trying to play like I know I can play, like I need to play. I just [have] to see that ball go in the net. I really feel like I’m turning the corner, that it’s right...

Two of the early-season surprise teams in the NBA collide Tuesday night at EnergySolutions Arena.
The Utah Jazz, who have won four straight, play host to Cleveland in a game that will be carried on ROOT Sports starting at 7 p.m.
The Cavaliers, who...
Prompted by a discussion which took place earlier in the morning, former Plain Dealer Cavaliers beat writer Brian Windhorst appeared on 850AM WKNR on Tuesday and discussed rumors surrounding the team’s front office and their largest human trade assets in center Anderson Varejao and point guard Ramon Sessions.
Windhorst stated that Chris Grant and management his team are very happy...
The Cleveland Cavaliers were beat by the Trial blazers last night. The Cavs looked all game long like they were 2 steps slow. Kyrie Irving the Cavaliers number one pick lead the way for Cleveland scoring 21 and Jamison came in with only 11, not the same Jamison we have seen of late. The rest of the Cavaliers team didn’t do much to help the cause. Portland couldn’t do much wrong...
Anderson Varejao on Media Day
On Tuesday, rumors began to spread about the Cavaliers asking around about trade interest for Anderson Varejao. There’s no indication the Cavaliers have any trade offers, nor is there any indication that they even want to trade Varejao. Just some empty rumors about the Cavaliers keeping their options open.
Cavs GM Chris Grant seems to be the kind of...
Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving remains one of the league's most impressive newcomers.
The Blazers play the first of three in a row at home as they take on No. 1 overall draft pick Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Kyrie Irving had another strong game for the Cavaliers (20 points, 5 assists, 2 turnovers) and Antawn Jamison chipped in 22 points, but the Jazz’ interior, particularly Al Jefferson and his 30 points, were just too much for the Cavaliers.
Anderson Varejao has three years, $27 million remaining on his contract.
The Cavs stayed within striking distance in the first half, but Portland pulled away in the fourth -- handing the Wine and Gold the 98-78 loss on Sunday night at the Rose Garden. Kyrie Irving paced the Cavaliers with 21 points.
Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…
