The Cleveland Cavaliers battled last night in Denver as they managed to pull off a one point margin if victory against the Denver Nuggets last Night. Not only did Byron Scott’s team fight for this one, they fought for 48 minutes something the team hasn’t done much of lately. The coach was not happy with the team and he let his guys know that after the loss they suffered against the Jazz the other night. Last Night we were able to see the team Scott expects to put on the floor, now it is time to see if this team can reach down deep and continue to make this kind of effort night after night. Denver came out in the second half last night and really fought hard to take this game away from Cleveland, we all know how the fourth quarter belongs to Cavs rookie Kyrie Irving and in this game Irving got a lot of help from Antwan Jamison who had one of his best efforts of the season scoring 33 points to help Irving take this game out of the Nuggets grasp.

Kyrie-markable: Irving does it again

A few quick thoughts on the Cavaliers thrilling 100-99 win at Denver on Wednesday: 1.

But as Cavs fans are slowly learning, with Kyrie Irving, all things are possible. 2. Its true that Irving...

Byron Bucks the “Timeout Rule” En Route to Win Over Nuggets

A rule is a rule is a rule. At least until it’s not. Or until Byron Scott chooses to ignore it, casting it aside in favor of “the hard way”, or at least the path intended by the space-time continuum. With 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Cleveland Cavaliers called a timeout to draw up what would presumably be the final play of the game, Scott’s team down one...

Kyrie Irving is changing the way I watch Cleveland sports

I sat on my couch last night feeling completely confident that he was going to score again after the Denver Nuggets regained a one-point lead in the final seconds.

Not just one more shot, or one more basket, but one more winning...
