From a coach’s standpoint, you can have four or five bad games, you’re almost giving me no choice but to look elsewhere. With the way he’s playing, do I stick with him or try to find another piece who can help us in this puzzle that we have? I haven’t made up my mind yet.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- LaMarcus Aldridge had 28 points and eight rebounds and the Portland Trail Blazers got off to a slow start but pulled away to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-78 on Sunday night.
Wesley Matthews added 24 points for the Blazers, who led by as many as 24.
Kyrie Irving, the top pick in last June's NBA draft, had 21 points -- 11 in the third quarter. Antawn...
A few random observations on the Cavaliers 98-78 defeat at Portland on Sunday:
1. Im far from disgusted by this loss, despite the fact it came by 20 points. Thats probably what makes me different than the coaches and players (well, that and my jump shot), but the Cavs kept it surprisingly close for two-and-a-half quarters. And I say surprising because the Trail Blazers are a very...

The Cleveland Cavaliers improved to 4-3 last night with an impressive road win over the young and improving Minnesota Timberwolves. Byron Scott’s club methodically ground down the Wolves over the first three plus quarters, building an 18 point lead in the fourth and cruising comfortably to their second road win of the season. The Cavaliers took the lead in the final minute of the...
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...
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.
Cavs coach Byron Scott says he likes to wait 10 games before making lineup changes.
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.
"Maybe the Cavs should start Gee and bring Casspi off the bench. Casspi has not played well and Gee has. Maybe a couple of stints coming off the bench against players who aren't good enough to start might help boost his confidence. But I do not think that Byron Scott should continue to reward Casspi by allowing him to start games over Gee who has, without a doubt, proven...
There are two separate ways you can look at this 4-3 start by the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of those ways is to say that the Cavaliers started with this exact same record through seven games last year only to then go on and redefine NBA awfulness and ineptitude from that point forward. The other way you can look at it, which is also supported by statistical data to some degree, is...
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.
PORTLAND, Ore. - The message to both Omri Casspi and Samardo Samuels is the same. Cavs coach Byron Scott wants...
