Final Score: Cavs lose to the Spurs after cold shooting, horrid transition defense in 1st half

Final Score: Cavs lose to the Spurs after cold shooting, horrid transition defense in 1st half

It only took one half, but the Cavs were blown out Tonight promised a matchup of two of the best teams in the NBA, two teams that fancy themselves to be full-on championship contenders. The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a tough schedule in March, and have had roster inconsistency and injuries, but employ several stars and LeBron James. The San Antonio Spurs are a model of stability. After a single half of basketball, it was clear we wouldn’t get a great matchup. The Cavs refused to play transition defense and turned the ball over time and time again. Your final score at the half: The San...

Kevin Love cleared to play back-to-backs

No more restrictions on Love. Kevin Love is now cleared to play back-to-backs for the Cleveland Cavaliers, per Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.

The Cavs clinched the Central division title with the win The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t been a consistent team this season, but they are the Central division champions for the third consecutive season. With a Pacers loss to the Denver Nuggets, and the Cavs victory in Charlotte over the Hornets, it’s official.
