LeBron Leaving It On The Court

When I started That’s Cleveland Baby I had no intent of turing this into a sports-centric blog. That said, Cleveland revolves around its sports teams so when they’re in the news I feel compelled to cover it.

After the worst start in his career, LeBron James recorded a triple-double with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists lifting the Cavs to a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Atlanta Hawks.

Two Down, Two To Go

The Cavs took game 2 in the East Conference Finals last night without Kyrie Irving. The more banged up the Cavs are, the better they play. LeBron James was 1 rebound shy of a triple double  and Tristan Thompson had seven points and 16 boards.

We Are All Swishnesses

The Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead over the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals last night when midseason pickup J.R. Smith dumped in 28 points on a Cavs playoff record eight three-pointers! With injuries continuing to plague the Cavs we’re going to need continued contribution from the likes of Smith and Dellavedova.
