LeBron James, David Blatt

After an eight game winning streak silenced critics following a 5-7 start to the 2014-15 season, the Cavs have now gone just 5-5 in their last 10, including Sunday’s 103-80 shellacking at the hands of the woeful Pistons. The scrutiny has increased again, and coach David Blatt is on the hot seat. But in a recent report from the Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, it sounds like the unthinkable — LeBron James leaving the Cavs AGAIN — isn’t totally out of the question. Read More »

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

His minutes are restricted after coming back from a Jones fracture that kept him out of OKC’s first 17 games, and its affected his rhythm. But when the Cavs came storming back to cut the Thunder’s lead to four with two minutes remaining, the 2014 MVP scored eight points in the final two minutes, including a pair of impressive buckets.

Kevin Love, LeBron James

Lost in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ overall mediocrity to open the season have been Kevin Love’s struggles. The former Minnesota Timberwolves go-to guy knew he’d face an adjustment playing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but surely didn’t think it would be so daunting.

He reached a nadir in last night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, too, scoring a season-low 10 points on 12 shots. Read More »
