Cleveland Cavaliers at Charlotte Hornets: Game preview, start time, and TV information

The Cavs will look to bounce back from a tough loss against a team trying to get back in the playoff hunt. Last night, the Cavs had their full roster available for the first time since acquiring the likes of Kyle Korver and Deron Williams. It did not go well. Tomorrow night, they’ll look to get back on track against a team they have dominated so far this season. Much of the state of North Carolina will probably be focused on college basketball, but they will miss out on some compelling Eastern Conference professional basketball. Who: Cavaliers (46-24) at Hornets (32-39) Where: Spectrum...

The Cavs view Larry Sanders as a “long-term play”

Sanders will play in the D-League Saturday with the Canton Charge. Don’t expect Larry Sanders to make a splash immediately with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Unlike recent additions Kyle Korver, Deron Williams and Derrick Williams, the Cavs are going to bring him along slowly. The plan for Sanders is to have him play in the D-League first with the Canton Charge with his first game coming on Saturday. "We're not in a situation where we need him to save us, so we get to get what we can from Larry," Cavs general manager David Griffin said on Tuesday prior to the Cavs’ game against the...

Cavaliers notebook: Deron Williams starts to make his presence felt with second unit

HOUSTON: Deron Williams is starting to show the Cavaliers how important he can be to their second unit.After Saturday night’s 116-104 victory over the Magic in Orlando, Williams drew rave reviews from coach Tyronn Lue and his teammates.“He gives us steady leadership off the bench. He gives us playmaking ability. A guy who can run a team and that’s perfect,” LeBron James said.“He’s a pass-first point guard, but he’s a point guard that can also score,” J.R. Smith said. “That’s probably the most dangerous player you could have. You can come off the screen, if you don’t play...

Watch: Deron Williams sets up LeBron dunk vs. Magic

Deron Williams and LeBron James connected in the pick and roll for an easy two. One of the reasons the Cavaliers signed Deron Williams was because he could help run the second unit. Specifically, his track record as a good pick and roll guard made him an intriguing fit with LeBron James on the second unit. That was on full display here, as a LeBron/Williams pick and roll ended with LeBron dunking all over the Magic: "He shook Magic Mountain!"#CavsMagic | #DefendTheLand pic.twitter.com/l4CK6QtMtD— Cleveland Cavaliers (@cavs) March 12, 2017 This is isn’t quite as deadly as the...

With just over a month left we are finally getting to what we’re all here for: The Playoffs. How does the East stack up for the stretch run? 1. Cleveland Cavaliers Duh. The Cavs are experimenting with new acquisition Deron Williams, giving him 24 minutes in a loss against the Celtics two days after joining the team, and using several small lineups in a record setting three=point performance in a win over the Hawks. It’s a good fit, and the Cavs options even with J.R....

Final Score: Heat clobber the Cavaliers’ bench, win 120-92

The Cavs rested Kyrie and LeBron, and the bench mob couldn’t stay competitive with the Heat. On a road back-to-back in Miami, after spending the night in Atlanta, the Cleveland Cavaliers predictably rested LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. The results played out the way they normally do without the Big Three - not in the Cavaliers’ favor, as the Miami Heat took tonight’s matchup, 120-92. The Cavs were actually able to put up a good fight for a quarter, as their nine-man rotation produced a 35 point first frame to end in a 35-35 tie. An early flurry of Deron Williams drive-and-kicks and...
