If the Cavs are consistent at one thing it’s being inconsistent. After finally starting a game strong, and being up by as much 16 in the first half, they fell flat. The Cavs went down by 12 in the 4th quarter and they dug themselves too deep of a hole to get out of.
To see how the Cavs started the game versus how they ended the game is night and day. They held the Blazers to 40 first half points, and were attentive on the defensive end out the gate. They were forcing Blazer turnovers and capitalizing on those opportunities.
Darius Garland was getting into the paint early for easy looks to Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley, and then.. it just kind of stopped. The Cavs had the paint advantage for most of the night but went away from it. On a...
After a day off at home the Cavaliers take on the 5-12 Portland Trail Blazers, who they beat in Portland two weeks ago by a 109-95 score. The Cavs were without Darius Garland while the Blazers were missing Malcolm Brogdan. Both starting point guards are back so we may see more offense on both ends tonight.
The Blazers started 3-3 but have since lost 9 of 11. They are really in a tailspin at the moment, but they did upset 9-6 Indiana on the road two days ago so they are not to be taken lightly. The Blazers are pretty good defensively and held the Pacers, who lead the NBA in scoring, to 110 points, 13 under their average.
The Blazers are 14.1 points better with Brogdan on the floor, so they will definitely be a better team than we saw...

The In-Season Tournament is… kinda fun, maybe? The Cavs entered the night 2-1 needing some help to advance as a wild card. They exited 3-1 needing a lot of help to advance as a wild card. The Cavs pushed the pedal to the medal after the first quarter making it a race to point differentials – so much so the JB Bickerstaff left his starters in late into the 4th. In the end, the Cavs came up just short in point differential losing out to the Knicks for the lone wild card spot.
The first quarter was all about the Cavs not hitting their 3s (only one) and allowing a lot of 3s. The Cavs also allowed another 50+ FG% 1Q which put them down 4 at quarter's end despite scoring 29 points and playing some good offense themselves.
Of course, what...
After a rest day following a tough back-to-back against the Lakers and Raptors, the Cavs take on the Altanta Hawks at RMF. The Hawks are 8-8 overall and 5-3 on the road.
The Hawks have lost games to Boston, Indiana, Philly, New York, Miami, and OKC, so they are not beating the best teams but they are taking care of business against the weaker ones. They have lost 5 of their last 8 with two of the three wins against weak sisters Detroit and Washington and the other against 8-8 Brooklyn.
The Hawks took a big hit last week as starting forward Jalen Johnson sustained a wrist fracture and will be out several weeks. The 6’8” Johnson is one of the top forwards in the game averaging 14.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, and ranking in the top 5% at his...
Just when the night seemed like it was going to be another heartbreaking loss, the Cavs managed to pull through. For the goodness of Ohio sports this weekend, the Cavs at least helped finish the weekend on a high note.
This really ended up being a game of runs, and halves. Both teams traded runs back and forth in the 1st half and with the Raptors leading at the break by 10 points. The Raptors managed to shoot 54% from the field in the 1st half, while the Cavs only managed 17 points in the 2Q.
It's been covered (probably too much) in these columns about teams hot start out of the gate against the Cavs. I’m not sure if that’s the players not being ready, teams having a good initial game plan, some luck, or some combination of all three...
