Rick Noland

i don't have to be politically basketball correct cuz I don't play. Celtics are ideal team for some Cavs to get feet wet in playoffs

Rick Noland

cavs won more games (34) over last 43 games this season than they did all of last season (33)

Rick Noland

picked #Cavs to win it all in preseason, and though I would have changed that after 39 games, see no reason to do so now

Cavs and Celtics gets started Sunday afternoon (with complete series schedule). foxsports.com/ohio/story/cav…

Rick Noland

but if you think you can win title, you should think you will beat anybody

Rick Noland

only thing didn't work out great for Cavs is Bulls being 3 seed and being likely 2nd-round opponent

Rick Noland

Cavs-Celtics Game 1 Sunday, 3 p.m. at Q. Game 2, Tues, 7 p.m.

The Cavs finished out the 2014-15 season going 34-9. They went 33-49 in 2013-14.

Rick Noland

Loved Shawn Marion in his prime, but disagree with Blatt's claim he's a hall of famer

Sam Amico

Cavs Lite top Wizards Lite in OT to close season. "We're playing the right way" entering playoffs, LeBron James says. foxsports.com/ohio/story/cle…

Rick Noland

Blatt:You all know Friedrich Nietzsche said, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’. I think we got stronger.

Rick Noland

Blatt:. We didn’t have a cakewalk getting to this point. We didn’t have the easiest of seasons, particularly early on

Rick Noland

Blatt: I’m happy that our team is coming into this time of year, these playoffs, after having gone through something.

Rick Noland

Blatt:I’m still learning and I’m still figuring what the NBA is all about.

Easily the best Blatt quote of the season #Cavs http://t.co/H8HrPu4U5f

Thank you for all of your ideas on the playoff #catchphrase. We had 15 entries with”ALL IN” entry. Winner will be drawn tomorrow…

Dan Gilbert

Hey @Cleveland Cavaliers fans, you can count on our entire franchise being"ALL IN". Easy to be such with the best fans in the world. http://t.co/FJxdPvCW1I

Shawn Marion's final regular season game of the 1,163 he played: 8 pts, 9 reb as a 36-yr-old & his final play was a steal/breakaway dunk

Chris Fedor

Can't wait to see Anthony Davis in the postseason. Belongs on the stage. Then again so does Westbrook. Meanwhile Brooklyn might get in...

Chris Haynes

Quick Story: LeBron-less #Cavs outpace Wizards for 113-108 overtime win cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Joe Gabriele

Scene of the #Cavs mobbing @Shawn Marion after that dunk at the buzzer was one of the greatest moments of the season. Everyone loves that guy.

Rick Noland

cavs-celtics winner will play winner of milw-chicago in 2nd round

Chris Fedor

That's win number 53 for the #Cavs. There are 16 games to win for a title, which would get the Cavs to 69. One away. Close.

Joe Gabriele

Even on an off night, #Cavs can 16 three-pointers -- go 16-30, .533 -- @Kevin Love (5-6 3pt FG), @Matthew Dellavedova (4-5), @Iman Shumpert, (3-5).

Dave McMenamin

Cavs close out regular season on a high note: Shawn Marion dunks then gets mobbed by his teammates http://t.co/y4GN7F2LyJ

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @Kevin Love, 19pts in 18 minutes, 5-6 3pt FG; @Matthew Dellavedova, and @Iman Shumpert, 18pts apiece -- Delly doubles-up w/game-high 12asst.

Rick Noland

18 points, career-high-tying 12 assists for Delly

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs take the 113-108 win over WAS. And raise your hand if you predicted that Brendan Haywood would hit the game-winning shot in overtime.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 113, Wizards 108, final. Final score adjusted after disallowing a late 3

Joe Gabriele

AWESOME moment at The Q!! @Shawn Marion - in final regular season game of NBA career - makes midcourt steal, dunks in traffic, mobbed by mates.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs win 113-108 in OT to close out the regular season 53-29. They won 34 of final 43 games. Playoffs start Sunday vs BOS on ABC.

Joe Vardon

Shawn Marion's last 2 pts in a regular season game for his career? A FACIAL dunk that clinches 113-110 win for #Cavs. Hello, playoffs

Bob Finnan

#Cavs on top 109-108 after Brendan Haywood's 7-footer with 10 seconds left. They need a stop to end this game

Chris Fedor

The Q just found someone with a Brendan Haywood fathead in the stands. And it wasn't @Chris Haynes

Chris Haynes

Brendan Haywood getting the "MVP" chant. Love it!

Rick Noland

please split this pair and put it on an odd number

Joe Gabriele

This regular season has been so much fun, #Cavs and Wizards decide to play five more minutes in first OT session of the year at The Q.

Dave McMenamin

The worst four words you can hear when covering Game No. 82 of 82 with no playoff implications: And we have overtime.

Bob Finnan

Wizards played a double overtime last night. OT tonight

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 101, Wizards 101, end regulation. Are you kidding me?

Brendan Bowers

Overtime not what either team wanted #Cavs #Wizards

Rick Noland

bulls winning late. would be 3 seed and cavs' likely opponent in 2nd round

Joe Vardon

Just in from the league: If the Wizards do not attempt a 3 here, $25,000 fine coming for Randy Wittman

Chris Fedor

Shoot a three, Washington. Please

Joe Vardon

I'll just say this: The Cavs, as constructed, could not survive OT tonight

Rick Noland

this thing had better not go OT!!!!

Rick Noland

Haywood last played Feb. 26, 39 seconds vs. Golden State

Rick Noland

evan Brendan haywood playing in this one

Rick Noland

if cavs hold on, will end season by winning 34 of final 43 games

Joe Vardon

Shumpert's played 28 minutes tonight, easily the most on the Cavs

Rick Noland

Kendrick Perkins warming up for playoffs with a technical

Chris Haynes

Another amazing moment: Brendan Haywood enters the game.

Chris Haynes

I can't believe it. Iman Shumpert blew another breakaway dunk. Amazing.

Rick Noland

otto porter sprained ankle, will not return

Bob Finnan

#Wizards forward Otto Porter has a sprained L ankle and will not return

Rick Noland

other than sub starter Miller, no Cavs starters have played in second half

Bob Finnan

#Wizards 79, #Cavs 74, end third Q. Rasual Butler has 15 for Wizards

Dave McMenamin

Shump made up for that missed dunk on Monday with that one.

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers notes: LeBron James entering playoff mode bit.ly/1FV15Al

Chris Fedor

Interesting ATL is playing the regulars so much in game against CHI. Wonder if it has anything to do with avoiding TOR, who won series 3-1?

Chris Haynes

Nothing is wrong with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and JR Smith, I'm told. This was the plan all along.

Joe Vardon

This is great. LeBron was seated in customers' seats along the baseline, in blazer and sweats. He had to move cuz of paying customers

Chris Haynes

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are making their way to the bench.

Chris Haynes

And Kyrie Irving hasn't made it out of the locker room, as well.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs have yanked all their starters for the second half. This could get real ugly in a hurry

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love and JR Smith have not made it out of the locker room for the second half.

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie, Love, Moz and J.R. start the second half on the bench. Good chance that's all we see of them tonight.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love and JR Smith are not starting the second half for the #Cavs.

Chris Fedor

Raptors win. So unless Bulls also win, and they trail by 7 at the half, Toronto would likely be the Cavs second-round matchup.
