Monday night's Cavalier preseason game was held in Columbus, Ohio at the Value City Arena...

How miserable was Sunday for Ohio's professional football teams?

When it comes to being a fan of Ohio's professional football teams, there have been many bad days. Sunday though brought a new level of misery. How bad was it for Bengals and Browns fans?

Bengals look to move on from Indy

CINCINNATI -- Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko is used to the 24-hour rule. That's the cliche NFL players and coaches like to invoke over how long they get to celebrate a win or lament a loss. The Bengals had plenty to lament following Sunday's 27-0 loss at Indianapolis, their third straight game without a win after starting the season 3-0. Peko did his best to be the...

Cavaliers-Bulls halftime dribbles

COLUMBUS -- A few quick halftime dribbles from the Cavaliers-Bulls preseason game at Ohio State. The Cavs led 51-49 at intermission: 1. Kevin Love didn't do much offensively in the first half, but the guy sure grabs every rebound, doesn't he? At least, it seems that way, as Love is just always near the basket and ready to board. Doing it against Macabbi Tel Aviv is one thing...

Will Gipson's play get noticed?

BEREA, Ohio -- One of the bright spots in Sunday's disappointing loss to the previously winless Jaguars was the play of free safety Tashaun Gipson.

It's been two years since the Blue Jackets hired John Davidson as their president of hockey operations. The club has forged ahead under his guidance by leaps and bounds.

Cavs Dribbles: Are Bulls a legit threat?

Random observations on the Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls, who meet in a preseason game Monday at Ohio State: 1. It's only the preseason, but a lot of folks expect the Bulls to be the Cavs' biggest threat in the Eastern Conference. I'm not so sure about that. I think Wizards will be up there, too. I'm not certain Pau Gasol will be this major help to the Bulls, either...

No easy explanations for Bengals struggles

INDIANAPOLIS --€“ Describing 27-0 is easy. Embarrassing is one word that repeatedly kept coming up in the Bengals post-game locker room after what the Indianapolis Colts did to them at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday afternoon.

Watch: Matthew Dellavedova with textbook defense on Dirk Nowitzki

Point guard Matthew Dellavedova is listed at six-foot-four. Dirk Nowitzki is a 7-foot forward. Although Dellavedova earned a reputation last season as a scrappy defender, nobody would expect him to come on on top in a match-up with the much taller Dallas star. In Cleveland's last preseason game against the Mavericks, Dellavedova found himself guarding Nowitzki on a switch. ...
