Tristan Thompson just swatted a Dion Waiters shot into the stands
J.R. Smith has taken 13 shots. 12 of them are three-pointers.
Interesting to see Mozgov have a bit of a mean streak with Perkins challenging him. Good quality for a 7-footer to have.
Mozgov forced to leave game with 4 fouls. That changes some things.
Lots of engagement in huddle with LeBron, Kyrie, and Blatt. Like they drew up play together
LeBron motioned to Blatt to keep playing after OKC steal & dunk. Kyrie drives lane, Love hits a 3 and OKC forced to take the TO
After fastbreak dunk by KD, looked like Blatt was getting ready to call timeout & LeBron signaled him to hold off. Then CLE scored 5-0 spurt
Mozgov and Perkins are going at it
Way this is headed, Mozgov and Perk are gonna go at some point. When they do, that's a lot of angry meat.
Let's see. Get bashed in the face and complain. And get a technical (Timofey Mozgov)
Well, Timo just got hit with a technical AFTER getting slugged in the face by Kendrick Perkins
Durant's guarding LeBron. And so it begins
Not sure why Cavs center Brendan Haywood is inactive. Only one player has to be inactive (Andy Varejao) since Cavs have only 14 on roster.
LeBron James 22 pts, Kevin Durant 17. Things getting physical and chippy. This one is fun. Cavs lead Thunder 57-49 at half.
Kevin Durant has 17 points for OKC. Dion Waiters has 8 points, 2 assists in 16 minutes
Cavs up 57-49 after a 37-point 2nd Q. LeBron 22p 3r; Love 6p 10r; J.R. Smith 11p; Tristan Thompson 6p 10r. KD 17p and Russ/Dion 8p each
LeBron James has 22 points to lead all scorers. JR Smith has 11 points. Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson each have 10 rebounds
Ibaka misses a great three-point look at the end of the first half. He and Durant are a combined 2-of-11 from distance.
Kendrick Perkins just devastated JR Smith with a pick
Perkins just took out JR Smith with a pick in the backcourt. HR on the floor, maybe a bit shaken up
Kevin Durant and LeBron James had some words. Durant was backing up his teammate who is getting torched by James.
As I'm sure you saw, LeBron had words, indirectly, for Roberson
OKC has five points in the first six minutes of the second quarter. They are getting very few easy baskets.
Tristan Thompson has 9 rebounds in 9 minutes. He's working his butt off inside
I'm not sure which position Delly is playing at present
Kevin Love has what I think is a heating pad on his right calf
LeBron up to 16 pts on 5-11 FG. Attacking.
LeBron James attacking basket with a vengeance. Thunder have no answer for it yet
LeBron up to 11 pts, quietly turning around after a rough start today
Cavs trailing 26-20 after an ugly 1st Q. CLE shoots 28.7 pct, OKC shoots 41.7 pct. LeBron 7p; Love 9r. Durant 7p for the Thunder
Josh Gordon. Man.
I now know where I'm going to get my next car...
Thunder's Dion Waiters booed by Cavs fans. Little surprised by that. But who am I to judge? People pay good money for those seats.
LeBron James is guarding Dion Waiters. This should be fun.
Wow. Dion Waiters booed when he checks in. Surprised by that.
Dion Waiters gets a mix of cheers and boos. Mostly boos I'd say.
Dion Waiters checks in at 7:16 mark. Some boos
Dion Waiters unnecessarily booed
Dion Waiters checks in and is booed.
Russell Westbrook has taken 3 shots - 2 blocked by Mozgov
Kendrick Perkins starts at center for OKC. Steven Adams has a migraine
OKC is 0-fr-7
J.R Smith said his highest scoring game on any level is 73 points in a Jersey Shore League game. "I still don't think I had 37 in a quarter"
J.R. Smith on starting/coming off the bench: "As long as we get that gold ball, I don't care what I do." Championship talk back in Cleveland
Brendan Haywood says he got kneed in left knee last game against Hornets. It is swollen. He will not be able to play tonight vs. Thunder.
Dion Waiters on playing former teammates: "They know I'm coming. They should know. Might talk some trash, but it's all good. Should be fun."
Thunder G Dion Waiters warms up in Cleveland while the man who traded him, Cavs GM David Griffin, looks on. http://t.co/2IloUN7OaF
David Blatt when asked how he is a different coach now than at the beginning of the season: "Got all my players. Makes it easier"
The scene http://t.co/lawnxtIhMD
So now Brian Hoyer may be interested in returning to Cleveland? Right when they replaced him w/ Anderson Varejao on those Mr Hero billboards
#Thunder at #Cavs: Dion Waiters' return should be exciting. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2015/01/game-4…
Pistons fear PG Brandon Jennings has been lost for season with torn Achilles. MRI today. Major buzzkill if so.
I enjoy making jokes about the deflatable football thing with the Patriots more than anything else.
Waiters said his remark the other day about "they give me the ball" was twisted and blown out of proportion. (We've heard that before)
