CANTON,Ohio- Before I get started about this week’s past action and preview what lies ahead. Kevin Love is having the season we all have been waiting for. Irving is looking to be involved in the MVP race and James is now, finally able to pace himself when it comes to the work load. Let’s review now.
Trail Blazers vs Cavs- (Wednesday, Nov 23rd, 2016)- I was traveling, not with a basketball, for Thanksgiving. So to I can’t say that I watched the game. However, I was able to listen to the game on the radio. What a first quarter for Kevin Love. 34 points. It sounded like Cleveland couldn’t miss. They easily dispose of Portland 137-125.
Mavericks vs Cavs- ( Friday, Nov 25th, 2016)- Overall great effort again. I said in my Western predictions that Dallas may have to part ways with some of their players. Cleveland had the better roster, and it showed. 128-90 was the final as Cleveland cruised to another win.
Cavs vs 76ers- ( Sunday, Nov 27th, 2016)- I, again, didn’t watch this game. I followed it on my phone. Philadelphia played good enough for 3 1/2 quarters. Then, Cleveland got serious. 112-108 was the final from Wells Fargo Center. LeBron James had yet another triple double.
Cavs vs Bucks- ( Tuesday, Nov 29th, 2016)- Though Milwaukee is hanging around that .500 mark at 7-8, they always play Cleveland tough in Milwaukee. They have good young talent on this team as well. It will also be odd to see Delly in a different jersey.
Clippers vs Cavs- (Thursday, Dec 1st, 2016)- The Los Angeles Clippers will be in town and this should be a great game. This will be a good test for Cleveland going up again a good Western conference team. From Blake Griffin to Chris Paul, the Clippers have plenty of talent. Should be a good game.
Cavs vs Bulls- ( Friday, Dec 2nd, 2016)- I know, the media will play this off as Dwayne Wade vs LeBron James. Chicago is playing as well as I expected. They are healthy and Wade is playing the role of leader of the team well. Let’s see how James handles this game. His best friend, the house that Jordan built, prime time and it’s on the back end of a back to back.
Cavalier forward Kevin Love was named the Eastern conference player of the week. Love has played great basketball. James has done an excellent job of getting his teammates involved but knowing when to strike and make an impact for himself during the game. Remember last year when LeBron struggled from 3-point range? While 36 percent isn’t awesome, he’s shooting the ball better from deep than he did last year.
