Little 9: Cavaliers bench players boosting team's 'Big 3'

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- For all their talent and celebrity, the Cavaliers' "Big 3" can't win an NBA title by themselves. Not without help from Cleveland's reserves -- those other guys. Although they may not have the catchy nickname of their three famous teammates, Cleveland's two other starters -- J.R. Smith and Timofey Mozgov -- and the team's supporting cast of bench players...

It’s tough to root against Cleveland, these Cavs

If you put Frangelico and Absolut Citron in a glass and then sugar coat a lemon to take a bite out of afterwards, it tastes just like chocolate cake. Nothing about citrus vodka, sugar, lemon, or hazelnut liquor should taste like chocolate or cake, let alone both, but it does. And so it is with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the most underdog sports town anchored by a league’s best player...

Little 9: Cavaliers bench players boosting team's "Big 3"

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) They don't have the catchy nickname of their three famous teammates, but Cleveland's reserves mean almost as much to the Cavaliers as the ''Big 3.''

Delusional JR Smith thinks Bradley’s being treated like Kobe

JR Smith is a dumb basketball player. Let’s just put that down here for the record. When he’s going good, he can score like crazy. When he’s “on,” he can beat you all by himself. But he’s not bright. He does dumb things on and off the court. And every once in a while, he says really stupid things like:  “Don’t touch Avery Bradley. Apparently he’s like Kobe now...

Celtics-Cavaliers Preview

LeBron James called it nerves and Kevin Love said it was anxiousness, but whatever affected the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first 14 minutes of their playoff opener isn't something they plan to repeat. What James does seem intent on doing again is making sure Love is a big part of the offense. The Cavaliers will try to make sure their performance from the final three quarters provided...
