J.R. Smith, Kevin Love

It took a combined LeBron James and Kyrie Irving effort to dispatch the Pistons last night, 103-95. The pair scored 26 of Cleveland’s 28 fourth-quarter points, and Irving matched his season-high with 38. Kevin Love struggled again on offense with just seven points on 3-of-11 shooting, and it was clear from Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy he wasn’t a priority when they were scheming before the game.

Report: Cavaliers “Lost Faith” Early In Season Due To Roster Makeup

Timofey Mozgov, J.R. Smith, LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t the super-team so many expected them to be over the first half of 2014-2015. Given the team’s play since a pair of midseason and the return of LeBron James from injury, it might still have a chance to live up to that billing. If not for those roster shuffles, however, the Cavaliers apparently believe their November and December struggles would have persisted. Read More »

Kevin Love

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls haven’t exactly lived up to preseason expectations as Eastern Conference juggernauts, but that hardly makes Monday’s matchup between the squads any less enticing.

Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers

Say what you will about David Blatt: His team’s offense is stagnant; its defense is wildly inconsistent; and he hasn’t coaxed the most from his players. Fine. But it’s clear the Cleveland Cavaliers first-year coach understands the value of camaraderie.

Kevin Love

On the Friday after Christmas, Kevin Love sat the entire fourth quarter in Cleveland’s second win — over the Magic — in their last 11 outings. Last night against Phoenix, he again sat the entire fourth quarter when the Cavs came back before eventually falling to the Suns, 107-100. As Chris Fedor at Northeast Ohio Media Group notes, this is a bad omen for one-third of Cleveland’s troika of superstars. Read More »
