The Minnesota Timberwolves got the best of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the last meeting, though each team had a much different look. Minnesota looks to avoid a ninth consecutive road loss as Cleveland continues its seven-game homestand Monday night. Kevin Love scored a season-high 36 points and grabbed 13 rebounds Dec. 7 in the Timberwolves' 91-73 home win over the Cavaliers, who were playing their 10th of an 11-game stretch without Kyrie Irving as he recovered from a broken finger. Monday's meeting should have a different feel. Love once again broke his right hand, and Minnesota (18-30) has gone 3-16 since he went down Jan. 3. It also has played the last three games without Andrei Kirilenko (strained right quad), including Sunday's 105-88 loss at Memphis. J.J. Barea also sat out with a sprained left foot. Luke Ridnour and Ricky Rubio each scored 17 points for the Wolves, who have lost by an average of 13.3 points during an eight-game road skid. They committed 20 t...

Cavs’ Anderson Varejao Had Life-Threatening Blood Clot

When the Cavaliers announced in January that their center, and the NBA’s leading rebounder, Anderson Varejao would miss the remainder of the season due to a blood clot in his lower right lung – they didn’t know it was life-threatening, and neither did he. In his first interview since the surgery, Varejao says he was “very lucky”. According to Marc J. Spears, Yahoo! Sports...

Cavs Anderson Varejao Says Blood Clot in His Lung Could Have Killed Him

There is no such thing as a minor surgery. That is why you have to sign a bunch of papers before you go into the operating room. Anderson Varejao had surgery on his quadriceps and it almost led to his death. “I was having my best season, the best time of my life, and a week later I’m in the hospital and I could be dead,” Varejao said. “It’s crazy. I’m very lucky.” Varejao...

Checking in on the Cavs Core

Fast forward to next year and nights like Monday, hopefully, will be unacceptable. As for right now, a loss to a hobbled and reeling Minnesota Timberwolves is one that can be taken, reluctantly, with a grain of salt. Chalk it up to the growing pains of a young and inexperienced basketball team. It's hard to tell if that eases the pain or enhances it--that the Cavs have...

Three in a row! Cavs beat Magic 119-108
