NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs lead by as many as 20 before winning by six against the Suns. It wasn't a particularly perfect game, but a win is a win. And it was clear that the Cavs were way, way, way better than the Suns when they were fully functioning.

LEGEND HAS IT: Today is a travel day to Utah. And Kyle Korver's first full day with the Cavs. As of now, he's expected to debut Tuesday against the Jazz. But since Mike Dunleavy has yet to report to the Hawks, that's not a guarantee just yet.

ALL DUE RESPECT: The Hornets, Spurs and Celtics had the night off. The Dubs took down DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings. James Harden racked up another triple double in the Rockets' win over the Raptors. The Clippers took down the Heat to pick up a needed win.

JOB WELL DONE: Aside from the recap, check out our site for a few news posts and some older posts on Korver. To come today: a look at LeBron's three-point shooting, a new Locked On Cavs episode and more.

CROWN: Go pick up Batman #14 - it might be the best comic you read all year. SB Nation's Paul Flannery went deep on Rudy Gobert. SI's oral history of the 2007 NFC Championship game is worth the time it takes to finish. Wired on Bitcoin's status as something that isn't money is a fascinating tech read. Lastly, the WaPo's Chuck Culpepper has a awesome feature up about how peanut butter helped a college football team win it all.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to and we'll talk tomorrow before the Cavs take on the Jazz.
