Cleveland Cavaliers News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About Cleveland Cavaliers
Price for a Beer
3/25/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers will certainly be in the playoffs this year, though their seeding is still undetermined. No one is likely catching the Atlanta Hawks for the number one seed and Cleveland has improved up to second in the East over the past month or so. Head coach David Blatt says it is imperative that the Cavs hold that second seed. However, superstar LeBron James does not care at all about seeding. He just wants to get into the playoffs and feels that he (and his team) can beat anyone on any court, regardless of the seed.
3/18/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers continue their dominant play and have moved into the second place in the Eastern Conference. It was not that long ago that the Cavs were in fifth place and struggling to keep pace with the Chicago Bulls. However, all those mid-season trades have helped out the Cavs look to be a threat to go to the Finals this season. They won a huge game against the San Antonio Spurs last week. Kyrie Irving went off for 57 points, hitting 32 shots on the night. Even more impressive is that the Spurs were defending him, contesting him on 30 of his attempts.
3/11/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers remained locked in a tight battle with the Chicago Bulls for Central Division supremacy. Even though the Bulls have lost Derek Rose for several weeks with a torn meniscus, they are putting up a fight. Speaking of fights, LeBron James seems like he is about to get into one. He was on the receiving end of two flagrant fouls within three games, including getting kicked in the groin by James Harden. LeBron is now saying that he may need to defend himself a little more. That is probably true, but his teammates need to defend him a bit more as well.
3/4/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers look better situated than ever to win the Eastern Conference this season after Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls suffered an unfortunate knee injury. Many believed the Bulls would be the biggest roadblock to the Cavs this season, but that was only if they were healthy. In other news, LeBron James set an NBA record for assists by a forward. He passed Scottie Pippen of the great Bulls teams of the 90's when he recorded assist number 6,136 on a beautiful behind-the-back pass to Kevin Love. LeBron may be known for scoring, but his sharing ability is up there as well.
2/25/15: A very interesting report about the Andrew Wiggins surfaced last week and it underscores the power that LeBron James has in the organization. Recall that last summer the Cavs traded Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Eric Love. Wiggins feels that he would not have been traded if he had signed with James' agent. That agent, Rich Paul is with Klutch Sports Group. Perhaps this is sour grapes on the part of Wiggins, or perhaps it indicates how much influence James has with the Cavaliers and the organization's desire to keep him happy or lose him again.
2/18/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers finally picked up their game over the last month or so and are knocking on Chicago's door for the lead in the Central Division in the Eastern Conference. Chicago is not quite ready to cede to the Cavs, and was able to defeat Cleveland in the final game before the All Star break. The Cavs were without Kevin Love, though. In any case, there are roughly 30 games left in the regular season and both the Cavs and Bulls are playing at a high level. It will be a great battle to watch as these two teams, arguably the best two in the East, duke it out for playoff positioning.
2/11/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially kicked it into high gear - and nothing proves that more than the 12 game winning streak they went on over the past few weeks. Those in-season trades for Iman Shumpert and company are really paying off. It also helps that Kevin Love is playing much better. But the topic going around just before the All Star break is Roy Hibbert's flagerant foul on LeBron James where James hurt his wrist, followed by James' criticism of the refs late in that game against the Pacers that snapped the winning streak. It was a tough loss to a motivated Indiana team, but the Cavs have sent a big statement to the league that they will be a tough out in the playoffs.
2/5/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers finally are looking like the team they envisioned they would be, and it took half of a season to get there. But it was not just the team gelling together, it took several trades to get some bench depth and defensive talent that has led to an eight game winning streak. The Cavs now have Chicago in their sights, and Chicago has been slumping lately (losing to the Lakers was a tough blow). This duel is just getting started up, and just in time for the second half of the season. Any team, with the exception of the Atlanta Hawks, is really within reach, so the Cavs could end up with the second seed in the East.
1/28/15: The Cleveland Cavaliers have been very active in the trade market over the past few weeks in an effort to bring some depth and defensive skill to the team. From an anonymous player, the team "had lost faith" in the construction of the roster prior to the trades. The player also noted that their record was not the fault of head coach David Blatt. Since adding J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov, the team has won five straight games and is starting to look like a group that can compete in the playoffs and even with the NBA Championship.
1/21/15: There is no question that the Cleveland Cavaliers are a completely different team when LeBron James is in the lineup rather than when he is out. The team rarely wins if he is not there, and actually had lost nine of 10 games before beating the LA Lakers last week. James was in the game for that one and put up 36 points. He had missed several games before that, which has the Cavs near the bubble for making the playoffs. Additionally, there is a lot of talk that the team has tuned out head coach David Blatt, leading to speculation that he may soon be out of a job.
1/14/15: Cleveland is certainly in 'win now' mode. They have the best player on the planet for at least another year and a half, and everyone wants to be the first professional team from Cleveland to win a championship for the first time in over 50 years. But even with all the new faces, the Cavs have struggled this year and are barely over .500. Defense has been a problem, so they traded two first round picks to Denver for defensive big man Timofey Mozgov. That is a steep price, but this organization wants to win now - and not worry about developing for the future.
1/7/15: With about a third of the NBA season in the books, the Cleveland Cavaliers have not come together to dominate the Eastern Conference like many predicted. Instead, they are a fifth ranked team that is not too many games above .500. But the one player that they need at all costs is, of course, LeBron James. The team is 18-11 with him but 0-3 without him. Unfortunately, news came down last week that James will miss two weeks to allow back and knee strains to heal. It will be the longest missed games stretch of his career, but hopefully he will return in good health for the second half of the season.
12/3/14: Cleveland is still learning how to play together as a team and suffered through a four game losing streak before railing off three consecutive wins. LeBron James put a lot of the blame for the losses on himself, but we saw a similar adjustment period when he first went to Miami. But there is a little concern about Anderson Varejao, who suffered a rib contusion last week. Through 14 games this season, he averaged about 11 points and 7 rebounds per game in just over 26 minutes. But this is the East and Cavs have the best player in the league, so they are certainly not eliminated from anything yet.
11/12/14: That easy walk through the park that many though the Cavs would have this season has been anything but. Perhaps it is simply growing pains and guys learning to play together (especially when many of their starters are accustomed to being 'The Man'), but Cleveland simply is not overwhelming teams with their talent, and instead, losing to inferior teams. They earned their second win of the season last week over Denver, and perhaps that is a step in the right direction. In any case, there is no need to worry now. As long as they figure it out by the playoffs, the Cavs will be just fine.
11/5/14: It is official - LeBron James is back home with the Cavs. The Cavaliers hosted the New York Knicks in their first game of the season, but it was not all lollipops and rainbows. The new look Cavs will win a lot of games this season and may end up winning the title. However, they are a team that has to learn how to play as a team for now. LeBron was out of sorts on opening night, scoring only four points in the first half and 17 on the night. But it was just one game of 82, and the Cavs will right the ship sooner than later.
10/29/14: The City of Cleveland has been buzzing since wayward son LeBron James announced he was returning home over the summer. LeBron brings instant credibility to the franchise, and quickly makes them one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs also added Kevin Love via trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves, while also having Kyrie Irving, who is developing into the player everyone thought he could be. The early reviews are good and now it is time for the real season. Cleveland opens their campaign on Thursday at home against the New York Knicks before heading out on a four game road trip.
The Cleveland Cavaliers had two picks in the first round of Thursday night's NBA Draft and selected Dion Waiters from Syracuse with their first one, taken at number four overall. Waiters played two seasons at Syracuse, averaging 12.6 points in 24 minutes during last season. With their second pick in the first round, taken a little bit later at #24, the Cavs selected Jared Cunningham, a shooting guard from Oregon State. With two young shooting guards taken in the first round, the Cavs are continuing to add youth to their already young backcourt, led by last season's Rookie of the Year, Kyrie Irving.
5/31/12 - The Cleveland Cavaliers received the fourth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft after this year's NBA Draft Lottery. Though there is no other sure- thing besides Anthony Davis, the consensus number one pick, in this draft, many consider this a fairly deep draft class. Cleveland will still get a productive player in either Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kansas' Thomas Robinson or North Carolina's Harrison Barnes to pair with reigning Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving. Cleveland also owns the 24th pick in the first round and the third and fourth picks in the second round of this year's draft.
The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped their final game of the 2012 campaign with a 107-75 loss to the Chicago Bulls. Even with the Bulls resting Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Kyle Korver before the playoffs, the Bulls handily beat a struggling Cavaliers franchise who will look to have a big offseason to address a growing list of needs for the team. Tristan Thompson led the offensive attack for the Cavs with 13 points, 12 rebounds, one steal and a block in the loss. Antawn Jamison scored 12 points in what could be his last game in a Cleveland uniform. He will become a free agent once the playoffs are over.
With a paltry 21-43 record, the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to put the 2012 season behind as quickly as possible. Rookie Kyrie Irving has been the lone bright spot for Cleveland this year, averaging 18.8 points per game through his first NBA season. The team will look to the upcoming NBA draft to address a laundry list of needs, and with such a poor record thus far, they have a good chance of receiving a high pick in the lottery. In terms of the rest of this season, the team's remaining games come against the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls.
With a 19-37 record heading into mid-April, the Cleveland Cavaliers must begin to look to the future to find a way to compete over the next couple of years. Rookie Kyrie Irving has provided a nice spark for the franchise in averaging 18.8 points in his first season, but unfortunately it hasn't been enough to get the team over the hump. Antwan Jamison has also played well, averaging 17.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, however the team is still ranked 22nd overall in points per game and have also allowed 99.8 points per game on defense, one of the worst marks in the league.
