HoopsHype Cleveland Cavaliers twitter
Raptors have their way with dazed & confused Cavs in second half of 110-93 hammer job. Cavs have lost 4 straight, 3 at home. Cavs have probz
Season-high 23 points for Kevin Love
Cavs down 14 with 5:30 to go. LeBron on the bench.
Kidding of course. I could never go entire night without blocking someone. But right now, Cavs deserve all the rage after blowing 26-8 lead.
Career-high 32 points for Lou Williams
For the record, Cavs fans, I'm not reading Twitter notifications until they win again. You guys take this out on me wayyy too often.
DeMar DeRozan started 1-of-10. Now 5 of his last 5.
Vasquez's awesome silver sneakers are inversely proportional to that terrible flop he just had on D
Lou Williams. Career high 32 points.
Turnovers killing CLE again. They have 15 leading to 20 pts for TOR. Have given up 86 pts (and counting) off turnovers in last 4 gms
Cavs getting very little from bench once again. They way overrated their bench coming into season. Currently, Raps bench on top, 42-9
Raptors just doing whatever they want vs outclassed Cavs team. Lou Williams (30 pts) and Raps fans simply mocking them in CLE. 85-71 end 3Q
Terrible quarter for CLE comes to an end with the Cavs trailing the Raps 85-71 heading into the 4th Q. Lou Williams has 30 pts for TOR.
Difference in the game right now: TOR has 6 turnovers to the Cavs' 11. And CLE is 3-for-12 from 3 while the Raps are 7-for-14.
Since horrible first quarter, Raptors shooting 56% (19 of 34). This game has been a 29pt swing. Canadian crazies who have invaded Q riled up
After leading by 18 early on, the Cavs now trail the Raptors by 11 with less than 3 mins to go in 3rd Q.
Five point lead for the Raptors, 70-65. 5:29 left in the third quarter
Kevin Love inside again. 4 quick points. Incredible. It's almost as if the Cavs now realize he's one of the 10 best players in the game.
Hey...Kevin Love inside again. Have to stay committed to that.
It would be wise for the Cavs to go back to Kevin Love inside. He had it going early.
Never seen this halftime show before: Group doing basketball juggling on super tall unicycles http://t.co/V22XlfqBhN
Lou Williams just abusing poor Will Cherry. Somehow, Raptors lead 56-54 at half. Raptors fans louder than Cavs fans too. Lou with 24.
Lou Williams (24 pts) beats the halftime buzzer to give TOR a 56-54 lead at the break. Irving 18p 4a, LeBron 11p 5a, Love 10p 5r, Andy 8p 6r
Lou Williams, who has 24 points, hits a buzzer-beating three to give Toronto it's first lead of the night, 56-54.
Tie game for the first time since it was 0-0
Kevin Love has one shot attempt in 5 minutes during the second quarter after getting five in the first.
One man's opinion, but I think these white Cavs uniforms are the best of their set. 1. White 2. Blue 3. Wine 4. Gold
Lou Williams is up to 18 pts in 10 mins off the bench and TOR has cut CLE's once 18-pt lead down to 1
Cavs go zone and give up a corner three. Lead down to 1.
Pretty loud "We the North!" chant here in Cleveland. Raptors Nation representing.
The Cavs' once 18-pt lead is down to 7 with Vasquez going to the line for 2.
If interested in knowing what a real, quality screen looks like, watch Chuck Hayes.
1st Quarter: Kyle Lowry with 3 points on 1-of-5 shooting. Kyrie Irving's defense has been pretty good tonight.
The Cavs lead 34-21 after the 1st Q. They shot 14-for-22 (63.6 pct) with 10 ast. Love (10 pts) already has more than he scored vs. WAS.
Large pro-Raptors contingent here in CLE. Their East-leading team currently trailing Cavs 34-21 after one. Love, Lou Williams 10 pts apiece.
LeBron James with four assists. Kyrie Irving with three. Cavs lead 34-21 with under 30 secs to go.
Love has 10 points in first quarter, already exceeding his total from last night (8).
Cavs have only two turnovers this quarter and seven assists on 11 makes. There's your difference.
After going 6-for-27 from 3 last night, the Cavs have only launched 2 triples in the first 10 mins of the 1st Q. Attack, attack, attack.
And he's down there again. 3/3
LeBron said he needed to do better job of communicating w/Love, whose first two looks tonight have been in the post. Made them both
That last possession for CLE was a perfect example of KLove demanding the ball to work in the post and the team recognizing/feeding him.
Appropriate that Andy V is the guy leading this surge. As KLove said: "If you don't along w/ Andy, there's something wrong w/ you"
This is the team that destroyed the Hawks last Saturday. Not sure where they've been all week, or if it will last, but for now they're back
Cavs go up 19-5 and the Raptors call their 2nd timeout of the first six minutes of the 1st quarter. LeBron 5p 3a, Varejao 8p 6r, Kyrie 4p 2a
If you missed that LeBron pass, no worries. It'll be around on the highlight shows for a long time. Cavs lead Raptors 19-5.
The Cavs are being purposefully aggressive in everything they do tonight. Harder cut, crisper passes, more physical box outs. Everything.
Mike Miller just moved faster to signal a goaltend to the ref than he has all year.
I was concerned about the defense. LeBron said before the game he wasn't. Raptors have started 0/7 with 2 TOs
Game is 3+ mins old, Raptors don't have a basket or a rebound. Terrific start
Great early energy from the Cavs and the fans here at The Q. Varejao 6, Raptors 0
I've never seen that before. Anderson Varejao committed a foul before the game even started on the jump ball.
LeBron wouldn't share details, but he has a plan: "I got a pretty good, clear-cut (vision) of what I’m going to be doing moving forward."
LeBron also said he hasn't learned everyone's personality yet. Says he's still learning as the leader how to get most out of teammates.
LeBron: "We're not there. We don't consistently play as hard as we can for 48 mins. We're not good enough right now to take possessions off"
LeBron James: "I've been waiting around a little bit to see what's going to happen. I've got it what I'm going to be doing going forward"
LeBron James refused to reveal what he was thinking when he was one of last to leave locker room. "I've moved on. I'm in a good place."
LeBron James, smiling widely in locker room prior to Cavs-Raptors: "I'm in a good place today."
CLE charts one league stat in the locker room: field goal pct D. The chart has 15 spots. Teams 1-14 are ranked. CLE is at the bottom - 28th
TOR head coach Casey on the Raptors being 10-2: "One day you're the statue. The next day you're the pigeon."
Great quote from Dwane Casey about dealing with Toronto's success: "One day you're the statue, the next day you're the pigeon"
Raptors coach Dwane Casey not buying into hype of being best in East: "One day you're the statue and the next day you could be the pigeon."
Raptors coach Dwane Casey on the Cavs: "They're one of the top teams in the league no matter what their record is"
