A daily feature here at FTS will be a link dump of all the Cavaliers news out there, and there is alot of it. If you have a link, send it to me -- FearTheSword@gmail.com -- and I will add it.
The Cavaliers may not have been looking ahead to Friday's game with the Celtics while they were playing the Charlotte Bobcats Wednesday night, but it sure didn't take them long to shift focus.
The Charlotte Bobcats had the measure of the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night at home, in an overtime thriller. But on Wednesday, a long way from North Carolina, the Bobcats had no answer for the Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers released the rookie forward Wednesday, but there's a chance it may not be permanent. The Cleveland native and former St. Edward star made the team after a good training camp performance. This Friday, however, his contract would have become guaranteed for the rest of the reason and it would have limited the Cavs' roster flexibility.
So much for looking past the Charlotte Bobcats. Instead, the Cavaliers just ran them over 111-81 en route to their biggest game of the season on Friday against the Boston Celtics.
Cavaliers forward LeBron James was called for traveling with 2.3 seconds remaining in Sunday’s three-point loss at Washington. Official Bill Spooner said James took three steps on the infraction. James explained after the game that he took a hesitation dribble—which he called a “crab dribble”—and then took two steps toward the basket. That’s when the whistle blew, and the Cavs’ chances for a win along with it.
