Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. The Cavaliers stun the Lakers

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:57 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

    It’s safe to say that the All-Star Break couldn’t be coming at a better time for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers lost the last three games of their recent seven-game road trip, and their struggles culminated in a shocking loss to the woeful Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. The 10-46 Cavaliers were coming off…

  2. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  3. Cavaliers working hard to trade anyone, everyone

    Antawn Jamison

    The Cleveland Cavaliers do not really have a championship roster. You probably figured that out somewhere during the 26-game losing streak. Well, you probably figured it out seconds after LeBron James talked about taking his talents south for the winter. Dan Gilbert figured it out later. What matters now is we are all on the…

  4. Wizards end road drought with win over… Cleveland. Of course.

    Feb 13, 2011, 11:16 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s been 310 days since the Wizards last won a road game. But after going 0-25 this season on the road, the Wizards are finally off the snide. Thankfully, they ran into the Cleveland Cavaliers on a back to back, who, after breaking their own horrendous streak against the Clippers, dutifully wilted. The Wizards actually…

  5. J.J. Hickson informs Blake Griffin that he will not pass “Go”

    Feb 12, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s only fitting that something spectacular encapsulated the Cavaliers getting over the hump of the single most epic losing streak in NBA history. It was going to take the players stepping up on a level we haven’t seen, and they definitely did. Particularly J.J. Hickson. J.J. Hickson was supposed to take the franchise forward into…

  6. Cavs Win! Cavs Win! Cavs Win! (It still counts against the Clippers)

    Feb 12, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    There is something historically appropriate that the Cavaliers ended their losing streak against the Clippers. Cleveland’s oddly fascinating losing streak ended dramatically at 26 with a 126-119 overtime win at home on Friday night. It seemed a fitting way to go — the Cavs had been giving the effort (mostly) for weeks, but had not…

  7. Good news for Cavaliers: Mo Williams returns tonight

    Feb 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Mo Williams Sad

    Of those 26 games the Cleveland Cavaliers have lost in a row, the 14 have come with Mo Williams sitting out due to a hip injury. Think they could have used a scoring guard who doesn’t fear big moments in a few of those games? They get him back Friday — Mo Williams will return…

  8. Byron Scott rips his team, effort after loss 26 in a row

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    In the games leading up to the Cavaliers record in futility — 25 consecutive losses in a row — there were a lot of things you could pick apart about the Cavs: The lack of guys who can create their own shot, the lack of rebounding, the poor execution, the non-existent interior defense, and so…

  9. Anthony Parker says Cavaliers are growing from losses

    Feb 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Anthony Parker

    Anthony Parker was honest after the game — Cleveland is not there but they are growing. They played with a real energy and desperation last night, they just ran into one of the deepest, most talented teams in the league. Even then they had their chances. In the video below Paker talks about that growth,…

  10. Cavaliers would not quit, could not win; lose record 25th straight

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:03 AM EDT

    JJ Hickson

    Desperate teams are dangerous teams. And Cleveland was desperate not to set a new all timeconsecutive loss record Monday night. But the thing that trumps effort is talent — Dallas had a lot more of it and a desire not to be the first team to lose to the Cavaliers since before Christmas. The result…

  11. Cavaliers may be losing but Dan Gilbert is making big money

    Feb 7, 2011, 9:39 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    On the court, Cleveland is an unmitigated disaster. They’ve won one game since the start of December. They are losing big. On the accountant’s ledger, the Cavaliers are winning big. It’s the remnants of the LeBron James era — money committed before he was gone more than covers a post-LeBron payroll, as Jason Lloyd explains…

  12. LeBron’s effect on ratings dramatic

    Feb 7, 2011, 6:33 PM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    The Sports Business Journal just released a report comparing this season’s local TV ratings for NBA teams to the ratings from last season, and one thing is clear: People like to watch LeBron James play basketball. The Heat’s average rating is currently 5.4; that’s the third-highest average rating in the league (behind the Spurs and…

  13. Cleveland enters record book as Cavs lose 24th consecutive games in a single season

    Feb 5, 2011, 10:45 PM EDT

    cavsfan

    There’s no pity in sports. Not really. In fact, many sane, compassionate people are overcome by a certain blood-thirsty ruthlessness when they play,watch, or are involved in sports. It takes over our mindsets and that competitive nature spreads like a virus and removes the part of us that leads us to show concern for our…

  14. The Cavaliers can’t lose them all… can they?

    Feb 5, 2011, 3:20 AM EDT

    J.J. Hickson, Marc Gasol, Sam Young

    It’s just become hard to watch. What forward J.J. Hickson said after Friday’s loss to the Grizzlies — number 23 in a row — summed the desperation up well. “They say you can’t win ‘em all, but in the same light, you can’t lose ‘em all either,” Hickson said. “So, if we stay (focused), I…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Cavaliers almost won one. Almost.

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:44 AM EDT

    Pacers Cavaliers Basketball

    What you missed while thinking about every move Nicolas Cage ever made… Pacers 117, Cavaliers 112: And we are at 22 losses in a row — but it was so, so close. This game was tied at 110-110 with just over a minute left. First the Pacers’ Darren Collison knocked down a three pointer. After…

  16. LeBron has nothing but love for Cavs organization, fans. Gee, thanks.

    Feb 1, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Right before his Miami Heat team sleepwalked through a large chunk of the game and still easily handed the Cavaliers their 21st straight loss, LeBron James had nothing but kind words to say about the Cavs organization and their fans. Which you can be sure sat real well with guys sitting around bars in Cleveland.…

  17. Stick a fork in them: The Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jan 31, 2011, 6:49 PM EDT

    Mo Williams Sad

    This is the first in our new ongoing series here at PBT: Stick a fork in them.  As we feel teams are done, toast, dead to the playoffs, we will give them a sendoff and obit. We’re not talking mathematically eliminated, we mean when their playoff chances really give up the ghost. John Krolik starts…

  18. Former Cavs head coach Mike Brown could be Pacers summer target

    Jan 31, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    For the rest of this season, Frank Vogel will be the guy with the audition to be the next head coach of the Pacers. He’s the interim head coach and if he can get this squad to show real improvement he’ll get to come back and sit in the big chair next season. The more…

  19. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Jan 31, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Boobie Gibson

    Daniel Gibson is going to miss a game or two for the Cavaliers due to a left quad injury. Rather than having a bobblehead night promotion, the Cavs are almost at the point where one lucky fan will get to play backup point guard for a night. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was at the Bucks…

  20. Report: Cavaliers quietly shopping Mo Williams around

    Jan 27, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Mo Williams

    The Cavaliers are going to make some moves before the trading deadline. Maybe they’ll win a game by then, too, but we’re far more certain they are going to make some moves. As expected one likely guy on the block is Antawn Jamison, who was moved last year at the trade deadline to help Cleveland…

  21. Knicks pass Lakers as league’s most valuable franchise

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    The return of the Knicks to prominence has led to a 12 percent jump in the value of the franchise, vaulting it over the Lakers into the top spot on Forbes’ rankings of NBA franchise value. The Knicks jumped from a worth of $586 million to $655 million, based on increased season ticket sales and…

  22. So, just how bad are the Cavaliers?

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Samardowned

    The 8-37 Cavaliers have lost 18 straight games and 28 of their last 29 on their way to claiming the worst record in the league. That’s the bad news. The worse news is that the Cavaliers are considerably worse than their record indicates. As bad as the Cavs’ record indicates, the team’s win margin is…

  23. Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table. And Bosh is going to be out a little…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Cavs and Raptors almost got wins. Almost.

    Jan 25, 2011, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay; Mike Conley

    What you missed while planning to your trip to Flavor Flav’s new fried chicken restaurant in Iowa (Yo! Bum Rush the Restaurant)…. Nets 103, Cavaliers 101: To lose 17 in a row takes a combination of bad luck and very bad execution at the end of the game. There was plenty of bad execution on…

  25. You can get two tickets for .50¢ to see Nets vs. Cavaliers Monday

    Jan 24, 2011, 4:44 PM EDT

    Nets4

    Would you pay the price of a gumball to see the New Jersey Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers? If so, you’re in luck — there are tickets available online for as little as .25¢ each at StubHub, as SLAM noticed when they looked. Why they looked, we have no idea. But we did and…
