Cavaliers Road Trip Takes Them to Golden State

The Cleveland Cavaliers have played 4 games this season, and sit at 2-2. In 3 of the 4 games, the Cavaliers were able to feel good about the way they played. Only in the Chicago game last week could their effort and desire really be challenged. This is a good sign for the early season.

Young Cavs give reason to take notice now

Think about this: Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters are both 20 years old. Then think about this: The Cavaliers could be 3-1 right now.

Dion Waiters Provides Good Service!

Last night the Cavaliers went to Los Angeles and shocked the Clippers. Well, it shocked me anyway. I’m easy to shock, I guess.
