CLEVELAND: Kawhi Leonard capped his career-high, 41-point night with a dunk in the final seconds and the San Antonio Spurs held on for a 118-115 overtime victory over the Cavaliers on Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
CLEVELAND: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called President Donald Trump a bully among other names and drew a line between respecting the office of the presidency and respecting the man holding office in more blistering comments Saturday prior to San Antonio’s game against the Cavs.
CLEVELAND: LeBron James and Kyrie Irving celebrated being named Eastern Conference All-Star starters the only way they know how — they shined in the Cavaliers’ 118-103 victory Thursday over the Phoenix Suns.
The longer this goes, the more difficult it is becoming to ignore. The Cavaliers did not play particularly well in any game on their recently concluded West Coast trip in large part because they aren’t moving the ball and they’re turning it over far too frequently.
OAKLAND, CALIF.: It wasn’t too long ago when the Cavaliers were preaching patience, when LeBron James kept reiterating that they didn’t have much time together as a unit and that they were still developing continuity.
SAN FRANCISCO: The wheels of progress are turning, slowly but surely for the Cavaliers. It will be months still before they are whole, before they have all of their pieces in place, but the first two important moves have been completed.
SACRAMENTO, CALIF.: LeBron James will have to be patient. Despite James’ calls for the Cavaliers to add a point guard, General Manager David Griffin said Friday the market is thin because so many teams still believe they’re playoff contenders.
SALT LAKE CITY: The addition of one of the league’s best 3-point shooters did little to help the Cavs’ issues with turnovers and assists Tuesday night. In fact, Kyle Korver didn’t even make a 3-pointer in his debut.
PHOENIX: The lead was 20 with 22 minutes left against one of the league’s worst teams, yet somehow the Cavaliers played themselves into the position of needing big baskets from their stars down the stretch to escape Phoenix with a 120-116 victory Sunday.
PHOENIX: Kyle Korver sat in the trainer’s room Sunday saying hello to old faces and new alike. Larry Drew, his old coach with the Hawks, stopped in to say hello. So did LeBron James, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.
PHOENIX: On the second anniversary of the day he acquired Timofey Mozgov, David Griffin finished the deal for Kyle Korver. It’s a perfect illustration of how far the league has shifted in such a short amount of time.
