Summer fun rolls on as Delly, Cavs cruise

Anthony Bennett buried a well-defended turnaround jumper that rang up memories of Larry Bird. Andrew Wiggins spun his way past two defenders for a high-flying slam with two hands. Yes, the former No. 1 overall draft picks are feeling fine, thank you very much. Oh, and Matthew Dellavedova? The second-year point guard was never drafted at all, and isn't really known for anything...

Why the Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t make the playoffs

Only in Cleveland would a basketball team have arguably one of their best games of the season and end their playoff hopes on the same night. On Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers were clicking on all cylinders during a 122 to 100 victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Cavs set a franchise record and season high around the NBA for assists in a half with 26. The team led by rookie guard...

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: Trees falling without making a sound

AP Photo/Mark Duncan Don’t get me wrong…that was a fun game. The Cavaliers played some of the best team basketball we’ve seen this group play as they came out and just crushed the Pistons 122-100. But as fun as it was, it unfortunately didn’t matter. The Pistons quit a long time ago. They’re the same team who played a 76ers team on the verge of breaking the all time losing...

I’m not interested in celebrating the simple fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing meaningful games in April for the first time in four years. But I’m also not opposed that simple fact, either. I understand this moment in Cavs history has arrived almost entirely by default.

Video: Pacers’ West gets into scuffle with Cavaliers’ Dellavedova, Hawes

The Pacers surprisingly lost to the Cavaliers and it seem frustration may have mounted with David West. Late in the fourth quarter, with the Cavs handling the Pacers, West was under the rim trying to score 2-points and got tangled up with Matthew Dellavedova and Spencer Hawes. Hawes stepped in to defend his teammate seeing how West threw an elbow at Dellavedova and the two were separated.

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: A game winner for Dion

The Cavaliers were on the road, playing the 2nd night of a back-to-back. For the first three quarters the team more or less played like it. The Cavaliers fell down by 16 points and it looked like that would pretty much be it. But the Cavaliers got a surprise offensive explosion from Matthew Dellavedova, Anderson Varejao was his old rebounding-machine self, and Jarrett Jack had an...
