The Cavs head north and look to snap a three game losing streak. Things haven’t been going so well for the Cleveland Cavaliers lately. A combination of sloppiness in taking care of the ball, as well as on the defensive end of the floor have contributed to the team’s three game losing streak. If the Cavs are going to turn it around, they’ll need to do it against a red hot Toronto...

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James had previously made a bet on the outcome of the World Series, and the Cavaliers star made good on it before Friday night’s Cavaliers-Bulls matchup. Obviously, each player picked their hometown team, so James was on the Indians, and Wade had the Cubs. With that said, it appeared that the bet had to do with donning the opposing team’s uniform, judging...

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving was not happy after receiving an elbow from Paul Pierce in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game, and he delivered a shot to his opponent in response. It happened when Pierce set a screen, which Irving attempted to fight through. However, it looked as if Pierce shifted his weight a bit, and Irving caught some of his elbow as a result. ...
The Cavs’ best asset is looking like a legitimate NBA-level player overseas. Cedi Osman is the Cleveland Cavaliers’ best tangible asset. With 2nd round pick Kay Felder and D-League call-up Jordan McRae as basically the only young players on the roster who are expendable, and no real draft picks to part with, Osman is probably the best chance that the Cavs have at getting a rotation...

Following his surprising election to the highest office the United States offers, president-elect Donald Trump has continued to remain a divisive figure in this nation. It’s also spilled over to the sports world where many professional athletes have taken shots at the soon-to-be president. This has led some to believe that there will be a changed dynamic between the sports world...
A bizarre incident on the court involving J.R. Smith on Tuesday night during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 118-101 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks was without question patented J.R. Smith-type behavior. Shockingly, though, it only served as a warm-up act to his antics in the locker room after the game, which involved Smith introducing the world to the his ski mask-wearing "alter ego...
Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith made a defensive miscue in Tuesday night’s game against the Bucks that even James Harden would laugh at. Smith, in the middle of a play, walked off the court to give Jason Terry a quick hug. He probably shouldn’t have, because his man, Tony Snell, took advantage of it. Snell started in the corner, and after a quick cut to the hoop, he received...
The Philadelphia 76ers still aren’t very good. But, for the first time since Sam Hinkie unleashed his controversial, franchise-altering #process three seasons ago, fans are getting a glimpse of future returns on his unique asset management. Facing Cleveland at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, the 76ers competently challenged LeBron and the Cavaliers, despite losing 112-108....
CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Cavaliers forward Channing Frye will be out indefinitely following the death of his father on Thanksgiving.

Ever since Kevin Love joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014, there has been a lot of scrutiny thrown his way. Whether it was about his lack of production as the third member of the “Big Three,” or about his struggles to fit in with a team with superstars the likes of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, Love has often been the odd man out on the Cavs over the past two years. But on...
In the first quarter of tonight’s Trail Blazers-Cavaliers game in Cleveland, the Blazers scored 31 points, a pretty high total. And they were outscored by one player on the Cavs! Cavs forward Kevin Love dropped a ridiculous 34 points (!!!!), good for an NBA record in the first quarter. It’s the second-best quarter in NBA history (Golden State’s Klay Thompson scored 37 in a...
Like the countless others who have seen it, even LeBron James himself has been left completely blown away by the brilliance of "LeBron: The Musical." "It's great," James said Wednesday, via ESPN's David McMenamin "It's unbelievable, actually." The brainchild of media company Dose, "LeBron: The Musical" of course is an ode to "Hamilton: The Musical," only with the Cleveland...
Kevin Love signed a five-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers last year, and the timing of the deal may have cost him millions. Love signed his five-year, $110 million deal in 2015. Had he signed a one-year deal with an opt-out, he could have signed after the new money from the league’s TV deals factored in, which increased the salary cap and would have given him much more...
