  • Kyrie Irving scores career-, NBA-season-high 55 points to lead LeBron-less Cavs past Blazers (Ball Don't Lie)
    You know that old saying, "It's not how you start, but how you finish that matters?" Well, Kyrie Irving started by missing his first seven shots on Wednesday night, contributing one lonely technical free throw through the first 10-plus minutes of the Cleveland Cavaliers' meeting with the Portland Trail Blazers. He then proceeded to score 11 points in the final 1:39 of the opening frame. (See? How you finish.)

  • LeBron sitting out with sprained right wrist (The Associated Press)
    Cavaliers superstar LeBron James could miss several games with a sprained right wrist sustained during a hard fall against Detroit.

  • J.R. Smith thinks he's successful as a Cav because 'there's no going out' in Cleveland (Ball Don't Lie)
    The flashy New York Knicks dealing noted nightlife enthusiast J.R. Smith into the dreary Cleveland winter is a script idea so hacky that it would have been laughed off of the table two decades ago. Starting with the unfortunate move that sent Knicks legend Walt Frazier to Cleveland in 1977, the idea gained silver screen immortality when the "Major League" franchise gave credibility to the trope that Cleveland was the major league city that no athlete wanted to work in. J.R. Smith actual life, it turns out, is a living and breathing B-movie idea. Traded from the Knicks...

  • Pistons-76ers Preview (The Associated Press)
    The Detroit Pistons faced two of the Eastern Conference's top five teams in the beginning of leading scorer Brandon Jennings' lengthy absence and the results have been predictable. The short-handed Pistons could have a better chance against a Philadelphia 76ers team that's also missing its top scorer and will try to avoid a fourth consecutive loss in Wednesday night's visit to the Wells Fargo Center. Detroit (17-29) lost Jennings for the season because of a ruptured left Achilles he suffered in a 101-86 loss in Milwaukee on Saturday. The Pistons have kept it close in their first...

  • Trail Blazers-Cavaliers Preview (The Associated Press)
    LaMarcus Aldridge's surprising return couldn't have come at a better time for the Portland Trail Blazers, who picked up a needed win over a tough Eastern Conference opponent last time out. Another victory could be hard to come by against LeBron James and a surging Cleveland Cavaliers team looking to exact some revenge. After their last game was postponed, the visiting Trail Blazers try to snap the Cavaliers' seven-game winning streak Wednesday night. Portland (32-13) had dropped five of six - with the last two defeats coming without Aldridge due to a thumb injury - before beating...

  • Irving, James lead Cavs to 7th straight, 103-95 over Pistons (The Associated Press)
    LeBron James came leaping in to try to stop Jodie Meeks as the Detroit guard drove to the basket during the final seconds of the third quarter. After colliding with Meeks, James put his hands out to break his fall before sliding across the floor on his stomach. ''I was scared, because I broke my wrist on a fall like that in high school,'' James said. I'm OK now - it was just something like a stinger - but I wasn't sure at first.'' James barely missed any game time after that anxious moment, and he finished...
