Kelly Olynyk Says He Accidentally Dislocated Kevin Love's Shoulder

For a team that just swept its first-round series and is comfortably in a two-power conference, the Cavaliers sure are messy right now. “There’s a lot of things up in the air with our team,” said LeBron James, as the Cavs head into a likely series against the Bulls without the services of starters J.R. Smith… » 4/27/15 10:02am 4/27/15 10:02am

The Cavaliers' Playoff Campaign Started About As Well As It Could Have

There was a moment during Sunday’s game between the Celtics and Cavaliers during which, if you squinted hard enough, you could start to make out the vague outline of a Game 1 upset. The Celtics—a well-coached team with nothing to lose that rode into the playoffs on a wave of good vibes—were spacing the floor, running… » 4/20/15 9:22am 4/20/15 9:22am

Kyrie Irving Unleashes All Hell In The Perfect Meaningless Game

San Antonio isn't usually a place for mid-March NBA thrills. Oh, the latter-day Spurs remain perfectly capable of playing the sort of gyroscoping, pinball-passing game pretty enough to goose Red Auerbach's carcass from 6 to 12, but it's very a long season and a very old team and while you can usually count on them for… » 3/13/15 10:21am 3/13/15 10:21am

LeBron Acknowledges Cryptic Tweet Calling Out Kevin Love

The Cavaliers are back on that horse, having broken a worrying slump with a 13-1 run; early panic is a memory, and another deep playoff run looks probable. But all isn't well in Cleveland. Kevin Love—who can become opt out of his contract this summer, by the way—cannot find his groove, especially on offense. » 2/09/15 9:08am 2/09/15 9:08am

Minnesota Timberwolves Hit Kevin Love With A Solid Burn

LeBron Moves Coach Blatt Aside To Attend To Grown Folks' Business

This is just David Blatt's existence now isn't it, suffering a long string of indignities and being treated more like a rookie player than a rookie coach? One day he is forced to clarify his comments after saying Kevin Love is not a max contract player, the next LeBron James is pushing him (likely to help prevent… » 1/13/15 11:59pm 1/13/15 11:59pm

LeBron James Is Out For Two Weeks, And It Only Gets Worse For The Cavs

LeBron James will miss the next two weeks with left knee and low back strains, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced today. James has not played in a game since turning 30 on Dec. 30. He aggravated the knee — which he says has been sore all year — jumping into the stands in Miami on Christmas. » 1/01/15 3:04pm 1/01/15 3:04pm

Andrew Wiggins Dunking On Him Is A Metaphor For Kevin Love's Season

Andrew Wiggins had one of his best game as a pro tonight against the team that drafted him first and then traded him away, punctuating his 27 points with this thundering tomahawk jam that Kevin Love—who Wiggins was traded for—wanted no part of. Of course, the Timberwolves lost by 20 because they aren't very good,… » 12/23/14 10:29pm 12/23/14 10:29pm

The Cavs' Outlet Passes Are A Damn Good Time

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in a nice little groove lately, following up that four-game losing streak in which they looked like a sluggish, boring basketball team with a 9-2 run. They kicked the crap out of the Charlotte Hornets last night, and even got around to playing some fun, free-wheeling basketball while… » 12/16/14 2:32pm 12/16/14 2:32pm
