Big Three has Cavaliers rolling

INDEPENDENCE — There are three big reasons why the numbers add up to an 8-0 playoff record and legitimate championship aspirations for the Cavaliers. LeBron James is averaging 23.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists, while Kyrie Irving is at 24.4, 1.9 and 5.5 and Kevin Love is at 18.9, 12.5 and 2.1. For good Read More…

Commentary: LeBron James will still dominate once he gets older, he’ll just find different ways to do it

Hop-scotching through the games people play, while wondering whatever happened to Jamario Moon? So for the Cavs, it’s win four games, sit for a week. Win four games, sit for a week. Aren’t the playoffs supposed to be hard? While we wait for them to take the car out of the garage again, there’s this: Read More…

Commentary: Believing in Cavs getting easier and easier

One thing stands out in what has been a remarkable postseason to date for the Cavaliers.

Cavaliers Notes: Cleveland makes “only” 16 3-pointers in Game 4, sets record for 3s in 4-game series

ATLANTA — The Cavaliers finally cooled off from 3-point range in Game 4 on Sunday, but they were still warm enough. Cleveland had its worst showing of the series from beyond the arc, making 16 of 37 tries — a quite respectable 43 percent. The Cavs finished the series at nearly 51 percent (77-of-152). They Read More…

Commentary: J.R. Smith is a gunner’s gunner, and he’s a perfect fit for the Cavaliers

With the Cavs binging on 3-point field goals in the playoffs, their most important player might be Earl Smith III. That’s because the aptly named Earl Smith III (better known as J.R.) specializes in 3-point field goals. Actually “specializes” doesn’t quite cover it. Earl Smith III has a doctorate in making 3-point field goals. It’s Read More…
