Jorge Castillo

Dion Waiters is really, really trying to be Dwyane Wade tho. European stepping everywhere. A for effort.

Chris Haynes

By my count, that's three air balls for Dion Waiters tonight. He's getting them out the way so he won't have to deal with them later.

Chris Haynes

LeBron James had to intervene with Dion Waiters and Bradley Beal jawing at one another. We knew Dion couldn't stay mute. He lives for that.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs bench needs a Rasual Butler, Jamal Crawford type player, instant offense. Maybe Dion Waiters will be that some day, but not now

Dave McMenamin

The Cavs lead 58-46 at the half. LeBron 18p 6a 4r. Love 10p 4r. Varejao 10p 5r. Kyrie 6p 2a. Waiters 8p. Butler w/ 12p off bench for WAS

Dave McMenamin

Dion Waiters off to his best start in awhile. He has 6 pts on 3-for-4 shooting, everything coming at the rim.

Ira Winderman

Does Norris Cole for Dion Waiters make any sense? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1y8tSuv plus more.

Chris Fedor

Cavs Victory Cigar unit in: Amundson, Haywood, Cherry, Jones and Waiters.

Chris Fedor

Dion Waiters has played 12 minutes tonight. Will Cherry now up to nine.

Chris Fedor

Quick minutes for Joe Harris, who comes out in favor of Dion Waiters.

Chris Haynes

Dion Waiters admits he's one of the guys LeBron was talking about: "Teams go on an 8-0 run...and we put our heads down. I know I do it."

Josh Lewenberg

Before the game Casey credited Ross' D on Waiters last season. Note: no one stops Dion Waiters quite like Dion Waiters

Ryan Wolstat

Thompson just ran into Waiters and a phantom Raptor got called for a foul.

Bill Simmons

This in-game LeBron reaction to a terrible Dion Waiters 3 is hilarious. The Cavs need to hire a team psychiatrist. bleacherreport.com/articles/22763…

Nathan Begley

Trade Waiters to Philly for KJ McDaniels!

Tommy Beer

Looks like LeBron wants to play with Dion Waiters about as much as Nerlens Noel would want to play with Eric Bledsoe.

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal drilled the 3 right in Dion Waiters's mug & glared at him - twice - like, "The best backcourt in the league is who again?"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rough two possessions for LeBron: visibly miffed after Waiters' missed 3 in transition, and then taken down hard by Wall on break.

Chris Haynes

A Wizards fan yelled, "Who has the best backcourt?" Obviously, a knock at Dion Waiters.

Jeff Zillgitt

Dion Waiters scored Cavaliers' first bench points on that bucket with 3:26 left in third quarter.

Jorge Castillo

32.5 minutes into the game, Dion Waiters and the Cavaliers bench have their first 2 points.

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs get their first basket from the bench (Waiters) with 3+ mins left in 3Q.

Chris Fedor

Dion Waiters' defense is horrendous and lazy. If you want to know why Harris plays more it's because he gives more effort on that end.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dion Waiters can't be taking that kind of shot with LeBron James on the floor

Sam Amico

Cavs' last 2 possessions: Kyrie dribbling too much, then Waiters shooting a bad 3; Kyrie dribbling too much and shooting the 3 himself.

Jeff Zillgitt

David Blatt experimented with rotation in first quarter: James, Miller, Harris, Haywood, Thompson. Dion Waiters didn't check in until 2Q.

Chris Haynes

Noticeably, Dion Waiters did not play at all for #Cavs in the opening quarter. He's starting the second, however.

Jorge Castillo

#Cavs starters: Irving, Marion, James, Love, Varejao. So Waiters and Beal are both coming off the bench.

Sam Amico

Cavs-Wizards pregame dribbles: Remember all that Beal-Waiters hype? And Dion should start. foxsports.com/ohio/story/cle…

Ethan J. Skolnick

John Wall didn't gloat on the "best backcourt" question in light of Waiters now coming off the bench. "He could come off & get 20."

David Locke

#Cavs line-up of Kyrie, Dion Waiters, LeBron, Kevin Love and Anderson Varejao are -10.9 per 100 possessions in 52 minutes

Brendan Bowers

Spurs bench scored 26. Cavs bench finished with 17. Only Waiters, Thompson and Harris played more than 16 mins off bench for Cavs

Chris Fedor

This #Cavs lineup is interesting. None of the Big Three in. It's Cherry, Harris, Waiters, Thompson and Marion.

Kurt Helin

Dion Waiters would be happy to win Sixth Man of the Year dlvr.it/7Z9cwr

Chris Haynes

Now that he has fully bought in, #Cavs G Dion Waiters has his eyes set on the Sixth Man of the Year award cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade

Now that he's fully bought in, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters has his eyes on the Sixth Man of the Year aw... ow.ly/2QQpom

Zach Lowe

Ty Lawson putting the Waiters/Love combo in a pick-and-roll...did not go well for the Cavs.

Jason Lloyd

Final: Denver 106, #Cavs 97. James 22p,9r,5a; Love 20p,11r; Irving 20p,8a; Waiters 20p. DEN Afflalo 23p; Lawson 24p,12a. CLE 43%, 15TO

Tommy Beer

LeBron wondering why, exactly, Dion Waiters decided not to pass to him... vine.co/v/O53OtAJw0Bn

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Dion Waiters has made five of his last six after starting 2-of-7 from the floor.

Brendan Bowers

Waiters with 15 points on 54 percent shooting but defense at point of attack has been equally important in keeping Cavs in game

Jason Lloyd

Waiters is red hot, trying to shoot the #Cavs back into this one. He has 11pts in about the last 5 minutes

Chris Fedor

Dion Waiters had 17 in the first meeting with the Nuggets. Has 15 now for the Cavs. Has 11 of the last 13.

Sam Amico

Cavs can't get anything going, stumbling and bumbling and Nuggets making most everything. Maybe this Waiters guy will wake them up.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q Denver 81, #Cavs 75 Love 20p,10r; Irving 16p,6a; James 18p,6r; Waiters 8p. DEN Afflalo 20p; Lawson 16p,11a CLE 46% 12TO; DEN 50% 13TO

Dave McMenamin

Dion Waiters scores a quick four points to end the 3rd Q and Cavs trail 81-75 after three. Love 20p 10r; LeBron 18p 6r; Kyrie 16p 6a

Brendan Bowers

Two big shots from Waiters after setting Thompson up just before with assist to help Cavs cut lead to 6 #Cavs #Nuggets

Ethan J. Skolnick

Surprised there were no boos for Darrell Arthur in Cleveland, after what he did to Dion Waiters in Denver.
