A day following Kyrie Irving’s amazing night against the Portland Trail Blazers, the 22-year-old was selected to his 2nd straight NBA All Star Game. I’m sure Irving will do somebody in the All Star Game like he did LeMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum here.

Watch: Kyrie Irving Drop a Double Nickel Against the Portland Trailblazers

Kyrie Irving had to shoulder the load with LeBron James out nursing a minor wrist injury. With the Cavs being 1-8 without the King this season, Irving knew he had to take it to the next level to keep their winning streak alive. I guess you can say taking his game to the next level was an understatement as Irving channeled his Uncle Drew as he went for a career-high 55 points. If...

Cavs Mascot Starts Twitter Beef With Portland Trail Blazers Player

Robin Lopez is not only recovering from a fractured hand he suffered earlier this year but also the Twitter beat-down the Cavs mascot Moondog handed the Portland Trail Blazers’ center.

The Clock Is Ticking On Nicolas Batum

It was Blazers 103, Wizards 96 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Moda Center.

Portland's Thomas Robinson is no bust

​ I feel bad for Thomas Robinson. I really do. It seems like the NBA is as open and fair a competition as you could ever devise to find out who the best basketball players are in the world. If you can’t cut it in the NBA, it seems like you should have nobody to blame for yourself. I think that’s the case—for the most part. Sometimes, though, a player’s personal development...

That shot certainly entered the memory of Blazers analyst Mike Rice.  But in calling back to the Rockets buzzer beater, he had a slight geography...
