With seven games and two weeks in the books for the wine and gold you can start to see trends taking shape, some good and some bad.  In the end the Cavs started the week out with a buzz and ended it with a whimper.  Such ups and downs should be expected from a team this young and a roster so incomplete.  But as a proud shareholder of Glass Half Full Incorporated I think I’ll start with the good news. I hate when people talk about “a case of the Mondays” but if this is what they mean I’d buy 20 cases and stock my basement for the winter.  I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve been down right euphoric while watching the Cavs since that cat left.  This night was one of them.  Kyrie continued to show the NBA world that he’s coming and with a small slate of games in the association, people were watching.  They tuned in to watch Kyrie vs Paul for the first time.  The 20 year old accepted the challenge and went at Paul all night starting with 16 points in the first quarter and ...

POTD 11/12/12: Marvin Williams on Jonas Valanciunas

Marvin Williams will never live up to his draft position, but there’s really no shame in that.  After all, he didn’t decide to select himself ahead of Chris Paul and Deron Williams, and it wasn’t his problem that the Hawks were in desperate need of a point guard.  It isn’t like Williams is an Olowokandi type, either.  With great size and a dependable jump shot, Marvin...

Clippers' defense shuts down Hawks

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin scored 16 points, Chris Paul had 15 points and eight assists and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Atlanta Hawks 89-76 on Sunday. Jamal Crawford, who won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award in 2010 while playing for Atlanta, had 11 points after coming in with a team-high 21.8 average -- tops among the league's reserves. Fifth-year center...
