Cavaliers pummel Celtics 135-102, head to NBA Finals to face Warriors for third straight year

From the moment the regular season tipped off in late October, it seemed like the Cavaliers and Warriors were on collision course for Round 3. And after taking care of the Celtics in five games – including Thursday’s blowout in Boston – both squads are once again ready to rumble. The Wine and Gold advanced […]

Cavaliers down Celtics 112-99

After a head-scratching home loss on Sunday night and a sloppy, sluggish first half on Tuesday, the Cavaliers flipped that proverbial switch after intermission – shooting 71 percent from the floor in the second stanza and blowing past the Celtics, 112-99, to take Game 4 at The Q. The Wine and Gold now stand one […]

Celtics hand Cavaliers first loss of 2017 postseason, 111-108

The Cavaliers seemingly relentless push towards a third straight NBA Finals appearance hit a speedbump on Sunday night as they dropped their first contest of the 2017 postseason – a 111-108 thriller in Game 3 at The Q. After spanking the Celtics by 13 points in Game 1 and destroying them by 44 two nights […]

Cavaliers whip Celtics 117-104 to kick off Eastern Finals

Any concerns about the Wine and Gold being out of rhythm after a nine-day layoff between rounds were erased early and often on Wednesday night in Beantown – with the razor-sharp Cavaliers dismantling the Celtics, 117-104, going wire-to-wire to take Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Cleveland still hasn’t lost in the 2017 postseason […]

Cavaliers beat Raptors 109-102 to earn sweep and head to conference finals

Through the first three games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals (and the first three quarters of Game 4) the Raptors had more than their hands full with LeBron James. Once Kyrie Irving got rolling, it was lights out in Canada. Toronto played its best game of the series – taking a double-digit lead early and […]

Cavaliers down Raptors 116-105

Even after sweeping the Pacers out of the First Round, there was still some concern about the Cavaliers’ propensity to let large leads slip away. That was never an issue on Monday night. Kyle Lowry drained a three-pointer to open the scoring on Monday night, and that 3-0 lead was as good as it’d get […]

Cavaliers beat Pacers 106-102 to earn sweep, advance in playoffs

LeBron James hadn’t lost a single First Round Playoff game in over four seasons. On Sunday afternoon, he made it five.

Cavaliers collapse in 126-125 loss to Hawks

There’s been a lot of talk of the Cavaliers “flipping a switch.” They’d better flip it fast. Nearing the end of an already-odd regular season, the last two games against Atlanta have been some of the year’s most inexplicable – with the Wine and Gold falling to the Hawks JV squad on Friday night at […]

Cavaliers beat Magic 122-102

Turns out, a three-game homestand was exactly what the Wine and Gold needed to jumpstart themselves heading into Boston for the biggest game of the season’s final month. After a so-so first half, the Cavaliers shifted into overdrive in the third, putting together one of their best stretches of the season and turning a tight […]

Cavaliers edge Pacers 135-130 in double OT

If Sunday’s contest between Cleveland and Indiana was a Playoff preview, it’s gonna be one hell of a series. In a game that had a little bit of everything – (and a lot of the two best small forwards in the East) – the Cavaliers and Pacers went toe-to-toe for four quarters and a pair […]
