LeBron James Returns, Cavs Fall In New Orleans 119-114

CBS Cleveland

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tyreke Evans scored 31 points, Ryan Anderson tied a career high with eight 3-pointers on his way to 30 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame the loss of Anthony Davis to beat LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, 119-114 on Friday night.

Davis left the game in the first quarter after taking an elbow to chest while jostling for position during a free throw by Kevin Love.

James, returning from a one-game absence because of a sore knee, scored 41 points, while Love added 21 points. Kyrie Irving played one night after hurting his left knee in a collision with Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook, but struggled early. He missed his first nine shots and did not score any of his 17 points until the fourth quarter, when Cleveland trailed by as many as 19 points.

Cavaliers’ Mike Miller dealing with symptoms of concussion

ProBasketballTalk

The Cavaliers, winners of five straight, are finally clicking.

In the last two games, Cleveland’s formula has included Mike Miller returning to the rotation. But that change might be short-lived.

Cavaliers release:

Cavaliers forward Mike Miller left tonight’s game against the New York Knicks with 2:28 left in the fourth quarter with concussion like symptoms. He was evaluated further following the game and has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol program. He will remain in New York overnight for further examination.

The NBA’s concussion policy requires Miller to clear a series of progressively more strenuous physical tests without symptoms. Despite occasional griping about the guidelines, it’s good to have a system designed to enhance player safety.

If Miller suffered a concussion, he’ll surely miss games. If he didn’t, better to know that rather than rushing him back.

Carlos Santana — aka @TheRealSlamtana — at it again on Twitter

TribeVibe

Santana2

Carlos Santana has had a pretty good 2014: After a slow start with the Tribe, he rebounded to become the first Indians switch hitter with 25 or more homers and 100 or more walks in the same season, finishing with 27 homers and 113 walks. (He led MLB in free passes.)

Then he played with the MLB All-Stars in the Japan Series.

In between, he joined Twitter, and Tribe fans have benefited since — Waiting for Next Yearhas called him Cleveland’s most engaging Twitter personality. He’s tweeted out fun (and sometimes weird) pictures, but most often just answered fans’ questions, pulling back the curtain a little on what it’s like to be a big-leaguer.

He did that again on Monday night — a sampling:

LeBron James On Cavaliers’ Issues: “I Stink”

CBS Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling, and then some. LeBron James believes he’s a major reason for their early failures.

“We got a four-game losing streak, so I stink,” he said. “I’m not doing my job.”

With the Cavs at 5-7, playing uninspired and not close to living up to enormous expectations, James offered the blunt critique of his own game Monday at the team’s shootaround as they prepared to host the Orlando Magic.

After a day spent with family and watching football, James, who called the Cavs “fragile” following Saturday night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors, said he has to do a better job leading the way. He’s staying positive, cognizant that if he isn’t upbeat his teammates will follow his example.

“Me being the leader of the team, if I start hanging my head low then it’s going to start going to everyone else,” he said…

Browns Excited For Return Of Josh Gordon, Not Looking To Him As “Savior”

CBS Cleveland

BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – Josh Gordon stopped by his locker clad in Baylor green Monday with a smile that stretched ear to ear.

The 6 month soap opera concerning his eligibility this season finally ended with his reinstatement and Gordon will take the practice field Wednesday afternoon for the first time since late August.

“No place I’d rather be than Cleveland right about now.. #reinstated,” Gordon tweeted Monday afternoon.

Fans expect Gordon to jump in and pick up where he left off last season that saw him lead the NFL with 1,646 yards in just 14 games after he sat the first 2 of the year out because of a suspension for a substance abuse violation.

But the team – including quarterback Brian Hoyer – is trying to manage those expectations.

“We all know what Josh is capable of, but let’s not put all this pressure on him that…

Team Grades: Turnovers Plague Browns Versus Texans

CBS Cleveland

By Danny Cox

After moving out into first place in the AFC North last week, the Cleveland Browns thought they could take their momentum and continue forward against the Houston Texans. Unfortunately, they didn’t focus enough on stopping J.J. Watt. That meant stopping him on defense, offense, and just about every other way imaginable.

Watt was all over the field on Sunday, and he almost single-handedly delivered a loss to the Browns who looked good at times, but couldn’t put points on the board in a 23-7 loss to the Texans. Let’s not forget that the Browns defense regressed to how they played at the beginning of the season and could stop nothing that Houston tried to do.

Coaching

Mike Pettine seemed to have a good game plan in place, which was to do what they’ve been doing for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, the defense missed that memo and…
