NBA Playoffs - 1st round Complete

#1 Seed in the West Goes down



All Season long we've questioned weather or not the Minnesota Timberwolves for for real, or, were they playing beyond their actual skill level... Well, all Season long they proved us wrong to the tune of a 59-21 record, best in the Western Conference...

Their 1st round matchup would be the #8 Seeded San Antonio Spurs who barely snuck into the playoffs with a 42-40 record... The Spurs are old, its no secret, and this is quite possibly the last run for the Big 3 of Parker, Duncan and Ginobli...

Everything was coming up roses for the T-Wolves in the 1st 2 games of the Series as they were able to take a 2-0 Series lead, winning Game 1 97-96 and Game 2 112-98... The T-Wolves appeared to be more focused, more talented and more energized than the Veteran Spurs... That was until they got to San Antonio in Game 3... The Spurs laid a beat down on the T-Wolves in Game 3, 121-77... The 44 point loss was one of the worst in NBA Playoff History and it seemed to shellshock the young T-Wolves as they would lose Game 4 two nights later 101-86... With the Series Tied at 2-2 and Game 5 back in Minnesota, the Pressure had suddenly shifted onto the T-Wolves... They knew if they lost Game 5 at home, they'd have to win Game 6 in San Antonio and that wouldn't be easy...

The T-Wolves jumped on the Spurs early, taking a 15 point lead in the 1st quarter... They weren't able to maintain that same level of intensity throughout the game however and the Veteran Savy Spurs team would claw their way back into the game... The Spurs would outscore the T-Wolves 85 to 67 the rest of the way on their way to a 100-97 victory and a 3-2 Series lead... Game 6 was a back and forth battle all game long and Tim Duncan and Kevin Love put on a show... Duncan finished the game with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks while Love finished with 36 points and 9 rebounds...



In the end, it was the Spurs Experience that won the game and the Series 118-112...

The Win propels the Spurs to the 2nd round of the playoffs where they will take on the 4th Seeded Oklahoma City Thunder...

Also in the Western Conference the 6th Seeded Phoenix Suns took down the 3rd seeded Dallas Mavericks in 6 games which is an upset, but, not a really big one... The Suns accomplished the upset with amazing all around balance as they had 5 players average 13+ points per game in the Series... It also helped that Mavericks All Star Dirk Nowitski missed the entire series because of a knee injury...

In the Eastern Conference Bracket there weren't really any huge surprises... The Heat took care of the Wizards in 5 games... The 76ers and the Knicks played a fantastic 7 game Series with the Sixers coming out on top... The #3 seeded Indian Pacers were eliminated by the 6th seeded Brooklyn Nets in 5 games... This isn't a huge mind blowing upset, but, that fact that it was done in 5 games is a bit surprising... And, the Bulls took care of the Bucks in 5 games...

The 2012/13 Regular Season has come to an end... Your Cleveland Cavaliers showed some improvement over the course of a long Season and this team really has a bright future... The Cavs finished the Season 27-56 and will probably be picking in the Top 5 of the NBA Draft this summer...

LeBron wins his 4th, or 5th? I've lost count... NBA MVP Award... He averaged 24.5 ppg - 8.2 reb - 5.9 ast - 1.4 stl - 1.0 blk - he shot 51% from the field, 77% from the ft line and 34% from 3pt land... He is clearly the best player in the game today...



Cavaliers Point Guard Kyrie Irving has become a Superstar in the league in only his 2nd Season... His resume is filling up with accolades and his career has only just begun... NBA Rookie of the Year, NBA All Star, NBA All 1st Team... With Kyrie at the helm the Cavaliers future is bright... This Season Irving averaged: 26.3 ppg (3rd) - 7.7 ast - 4.9 reb - 1.3 stl...

Regular Season Scoring Champ



Carmelo Anthony led the NBA in scoring averaging 28.4 points per game... Melo scored over 40 points in 6 games this Season and his Season high was 48 points in a 110-99 loss to the Magic back on January 30th... His efforts helped the Knicks make the playoffs as the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference...


Regular Rebounding Champ



Anderson Varejao won the rebounding Crown as he averaged 11.4 rebounds per game... Andy also led the league in Offensive Rebounds per game with 3.2... Combined with his 10.6 points per game and Andy is a walking double-double machine...

The Miami Heat were the Pre-Season #1 team in the league and its no surprise that they are still ranked #1 in the Power-Rankings entering this final month of the Season... With LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh this team is simply loaded with talent and are the favorite to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals for a 3rd consecutive Season...



As you can see there are a few surprises both good and bad throughout the League... Perhaps the Biggest surprise has been the great play of the Minnesota Timberwolves this Season... Witht the hot start, many figured they would come back down to earth as the Season progressed, but, they haven't let up one bit and are currently the #1 Seed in the Western Conference with their 48-24 record...



Another surprise to many, on the opposite end of the spectrum is the dissapointing Season that the Boston Celtics are having... Currently sitting at 30-43 and 5.5 games out of the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, its not looking good for the Celtics to make one last run with Kevin Garnet and Paul Peirce... A complete Overhaul is surely soon to be in the Works in Boston...

Well folks the 2012/13 NBA All Star Game is upon us and your Cleveland Cavaliers are, unfortunately in a familiar position, LAST in the Eastern Conference Central Division, and dead last in the NBA with a 16-37 win / loss record...

Despite the Team's hardships over the course of the 1st half of the Season, there have been a few Bright Spots...



2nd year Point Guard and former #1 Pick Kyrie Irving has been voted to his 1st ever All Star Game... Through 53 games Kyrie is 2nd in the league in scoring, averaging 26.4 points per game... He also averages 7.9 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game...



Kyrie's backcourt mate and #4 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft Dion Waiters is making a name for himself around the league... He has lived up to the billing coming out of the Draft, and despite the questions early on, he has delivered to this point... Through 53 games Waiters is averaging 16.8 points per game, 4.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists... He has become a legit #2 scoring option for the Cavaliers and they appear to have one of the best young backcourts in the league...

Anderson Varejao just barely missed making his 1st All Star Game as his numbers have been down recently due to some nagging injuries... Despite those injuries, Varejao is averaging 10.9 points per game, 10.9 rebounds, and .8 blocks per game this year...

Outside of those 3, the Cavaliers haven't gotten much production from the rest of the team... Alonzo Gee is inconsistent, but still manages to score 11 points per game and play pretty good defense... Former #4 pick Tristan Thompson is developing nicely and averaging 10.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game...

Overall, despite the record, I don't think you can be disappointed with how the team has played in every game this year... Talent is clearly holding them back, but, the effort is there, and that's half the battle...

As I predicted the Cavaliers have struggled mightily in the first 20+ games of the Season... Outside of Star Point Gaurd Kyrie Irving and Center Anderson Varajao, this team simply doesn't have as much talent as 95% of the rest of the teams in the NBA... Every game for them is a struggle despite their Opponent and if things don't turn around quickly, there could be some big changes (trades, coaching changes) on the horizon...



Through the first 20+ games the Cavs are led by Kyrie Irving who is averaging 24 points, 9 assists and 5 rebounds per game...



Dion Waiters is throwing his name into the hat for Rookie of the Year considerations averaging 18 points per game and 6 rebouns, however, he's shooting a tough 38% from the field...



You can pencil Anderson Varejao in for a double double every time he steps onto the floor... This guy is all hustle and gets to every loose ball and does ALL the dirty work for this team... Through 20+ games he's averaging 13 points and 14 rebounds per game... He's had 20+ rebounds in 5 games thus far and is getting some consideration on the Eastern Conference All Star Ballot...

The Cavs sit at 6-15 right now and while they have played tough, simply seemed outmatched on most nights... Like I said in my preseason predictions, this team is still a few pieces away from contending for the playoffs... The question now is, will they be patient and rebuild through the draft? or, will they panic and trade away players like Anderson Varejao and try to rebuild quickly?

The Off-Season is over... New Draftees and Free Agents are welcomed with Open Arms to Cleveland Ohio and the fans are as excited about this upcoming Season as they have been in what feels like eons ago...

"LeBron has his ring... When will you get yours?"
Cleveland Plain Dealer - Directed at Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert who promised the Cavaliers would "win a ring before the self proclaimed King" after the Decision...

The Cleveland Cavaliers were the hottest team in the NBA in LeBron Jame's final Season... They were Must See TV every night and regularly on Nation Television... Well, LeBron left (get over it) and the Cavaliers have fallen from the graces of the NBA's Elite Franchises and now find themselves trying to rebuild from the Ground up... The 2 years following the LeBron James era were not pretty... 19-63, followed up by a strike shortened 21-45...

Here is a look at the Roster and Rotation that the Cavaliers will bring into the 2012/13 NBA Season...

Cleveland Cavaliers Depth Chart - 2012

PGKyrie Irving (83)Daniel Gibson (61)Jeremy Pargo (60)
SGDion Waiters (R) (71)CJ Miles (68)
SFAlonzo Gee (71)CJ Miles (68)Luke Walton (66)Omri Caspi (64)
PFTristan Thompson (68)Samardo Samuels (63)Jon Leuer (R) (63)Luke Harengody (55)
CAnderson Varejao (78)Tyler Zeller (R) (65)


As you can see, this team will go only as far as the 2011 NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving will take them... Dion Waiters, who did not start for his Syracuse Orangemen in College will be asked to be the #2 Scoring Option on one of the youngest teams in the NBA... Anderson Varejao will get every rebound that he can reach, but, he isn't much of a scorer... Also, he's constantly dealing with Trade Rumors as teams that are on the verge of a Championship really value what he brings to the table... Tyler Zeller will backup Varajao and CJ Miles will be the teams 6th man...

It could be another loooooong Season for the Cavaliers and their Fans...

PREDICTION - 30-52... An improvement from the last 2 years, but, this team is still 2 or 3 pieces away from being a legit Playoff Contender

Stay Tuned...

Everyone knows what happened to the Cavaliers and their Fans a few years back... Even so, I feel the need to recap it, quickly...

LeBron James, the 2 Time NBA MVP and Hometown Hero decided to leave the Cavaliers and join forces with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami to form the 1st (of many) "Super Teams" in South Beach... The first Season together the Maimi Heat reached the NBA Finals and were eliminated by the Dallas Mavericks in 6 games... Fans in Cleveland cheered the Mavericks victory, almost as much as if the Cavaliers themselves had won the NBA Championship...

That summer, the Cavaliers, who had the Worst Record in the NBA without LeBron James, landed a young Point Guard from Duke named Kyrie Irving and a young big man Tristan Thompson from Texas with the #4 pick...



Kyrie had an immediate impact on the Cavaliers and the NBA as he went on to win NBA Rookie of the Year in his first year... Thompson wasn't as successful but he has showed good signs that he can be a contributor on a winning team someday... Despite Kyrie's efforts the Cavaliers finished with a very poor record once again...

Meanwhile in Miami, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh were on their way to winning their first NBA Championship together...



Seeing LeBron hoist that Trophy was bitter sweet for many Clevelanders... Some fans had forgiven LeBron for leaving nearly 3 full years earlier, some fans were happy for him since he was from their hometown, while others still hated the idea of him ever winning anything...

One good thing that happened when LeBron got his ring and it wasn't happening in Miami... It was happening in Cleveland... For the 2 years after LeBron left, it seemed as though Cavaliers fans spent more time rooting against the Miami Heat, rather than caring how well, or poor, the Cavs themselves were doing... After the Heat's Championship, that has clearly changed... Local Sports talk radio is a buzz talking about what the Cavs are doing, and some are questioning if they are doing things correctly, who the coach is, who the players are, who the GM is - you know, your normal sports talk radio stuff... The pressure an eyes are definitely back on the Cavaliers and the Organization...

The Free Pass they've gotten over the past 2 years while the fanbase was preoccupied with rooting against LeBron and the Heat are over, and now, Clevelanders want to see their team win...

After the Miami Heat Championship, the Cavaliers were sitting pretty in the NBA Draft with the #4 Overall Pick... Many thought it was a done deal and their would take the Highly Touted SF from North Carolina, Harrison Barnes - (who would have been the #1 pick had he entered the draft after his freshman year) - However, to the surprise of many, the Cavaliers took the Slashing Philadelphia Shooting Guard from Syracuse Dion Waiters... Many fans and NBA People from around the league questioned the pick seeing as Waiters didn't even start for the Orange...

The Cavs made a trade later in the draft, trading back into the 1st round and selecting a Seven Footer from North Carolina Tyler Zeller... Many felt like getting a player of Zeller's quality that late in the 1st round was a steal for the Cavaliers...

So here we are... Now 2 full NBA Seasons after "The Decision"... 3 Top 5 picks from the last 2 Drafts... One of the brightest up and coming stars in the game today in Kyrie Irging... A fanbase that is know solely focused on what YOU are doing...

This is where our journey begins...

Coming off their win over the Jets, Tom Brady and the Patriots visited Sun Life Stadium expecting to come away owning the division. Instead, they owned the time of possession as Miami walked away with the 'W' to the tune of 31-38.

Ryan Tannehill threw for 274 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception on the day, as Lamar Miller continues his stellar season, notching another133 yards to his already impressive rookie campaign. Miller, already over 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season, is making a strong campaign for rookie of the year.

The game was close until the third quarter when Miami scored touchdowns on three straight drives, thanks to big plays by Steve Smith, Terrell Owens and Lamar Miller. The Patriots had no answer until the fourth quarter, where they managed to shut down the Dolphins offense. Unfortunately, Tom Brady's 465 passing yards only netted him 2 touchdowns and 1 interception at the end of the game, stopping his comeback short.

The Dolphins (8-4) now stand 1 game atop the AFC East and will take their 5 game winning streak to San Francisco and face the red hot 49ers (9-3).
