Random observations on the Cavaliers' big 114-108 road win over the Chicago Bulls in overtime Friday:
1. LeBron James scored 36 points. He still needs to work on his ball-handling. Only one of those sentences is true.
2. This was the James everyone expected. Funny, but I had this thought before the game: "I bet LeBron plays better away from all the hype of being back...

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards has used the term "pace" many times since the middle of September to describe how he wanted the team to play this season. There wasn't much pace dictated by the home team as they fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 in front of 14,479 rather vocal fans Friday night.
Statistically, these teams were relatively even...
One: They had trouble clearing their own zone and it took eight and a half minutes to register their first shot on Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier. This is not coming out and setting the tone of the game. Toronto dictated the pace of the game.
Two: Curtis McElhinney has shown very little rebound control in the last two games. The pucks were bouncing off his pads every which way. He...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Daniel Winnik and Phil Kessel each had a goal and two assists, and Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs past the injury-riddled Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Friday night.

The shortstop, who played at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus this past season, is the highest-ranked Major League prospect who will be playing in the game. Lindor is ranked fourth by both Baseball Prospectus and MLBPipeline.com.
Halloween may be on Friday this year, but Archie Griffin's costume will make a great TwitPic for a future #tbt.
For those who aren't familiar with Internet lingo, #tbt stands for "Throwback Thursday." And if you don't know who Archie Griffin is, he provided a reminder in a pic captured and shared by the Ohio State Alumni Association.
Yep, that is what Griffin...

CINCINNATI - Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis wasn't guaranteeing A.J. Green would play Sunday against Jacksonville but he came as close as possible when it came to talking about the chances of the wide receiver seeing his first game action in four weeks. The same can't be said about running back Giovani Bernard.
While Green practiced Friday on a limited basis for the...

CLEVELAND -- In a move that was expected, the Indians have picked up their club option on infielder Mike Aviles for next season.
Aviles, who will be in his third season with the Tribe, hit .247 with 16 doubles, a triple, five home runs and 39 RBI. He equaled his career-high with 14 stolen bases and had two walk off hits, including a home run on Aug. 14 against Baltimore.
Columbus, OH â Halting the three game skid is forefront in the minds of the Blue Jackets as they host the Toronto Maple Leafs this evening. Of the five losses suffered this season, they were competitive in four of them.
But it's the little things that are tripping them as they look for ways to play a complete 60 minute game. Whether it is mental lapses or taking a shift...
After struggling in his highly anticipated homecoming, LeBron James will face the team that was the best at containing him last season.
With a healthier Derrick Rose and the addition of Pau Gasol, the Chicago Bulls will try to show the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers that they'll be one of their main challengers in the Eastern Conference on Friday night.
James missed eight of his...
The banged-up Columbus Blue Jackets were having enough trouble keeping the puck out of their own net, and as might be expected, it got no better in their first game without Sergei Bobrovsky.
The injury-depleted team's next opportunity to correct things without its sidelined goaltender - among others - comes Friday night at home against a Toronto Maple Leafs club coming off its...
With all of the injuries to have befallen the Blue Jackets in a short amount of time, it's easy to forget that they have only played nine games. They still have, at the very least, four thousand three hundred and eighty minutes of hockey to play. To put it simply, with 73 games to go, pushing the panic button now may be a bit premature.
The organization has touted its depth going...
CLEVELAND -- Nowhere in the months of planning, poring over minute details and dreaming up the bright lights, loud sounds and national stage for LeBron James' basketball homecoming did anybody, anywhere, spend one second thinking that James wouldn't play well when it came.
Or that the Cleveland Cavaliers would lose.
And then it happened.
Pomp, circumstance, tickets for 10...
CLEVELAND -- Random dribbles from the Cavaliers' 95-90 season-opening loss (yes, loss) to the visiting New York Knicks:
1. It was one of 82 games. The Cavs deserve time to gel. So let's not panic. In fact, if you're a Cavs fan, you don't even need to be concerned. One game. It was awful. Now let it go.
2. OK, remember that. Now let's talk about the game.

James, who returned to the Cavs and his native Ohio this summer after winning two NBA titles in Miami, finished with 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting....
