Cavs trade Hickson for Kings’ Casspi

The Cleveland Cavaliers, having a logjam at the power forward position, traded away J.J. Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for small forward Omri Casspi and a first round draft pick.

The 23-year-old Casspi will be a real treat for Cavs fans, Anthony Parker says. Parker played with Casspi on the Maccabi Tel Aviv team that won the 2005-06 Israeli Premier League championship and the Israeli Cup

In 71 games last season, the 6’9 Casspi averaged 8.6 points, with 37 percent shooting from thrre-point range, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 24 minutes.

The 22-year-old Hickson is a power forward, but seemed to disappear in games, but played better at center. Last year he averaged 13.8 points and 8.7 rebounds while shooting 46 percent from the field.

The draft pick is lottery-protected in 2012, which simply means that if Sacramento is in the lottery, as they usually are, the pick will roll over to 2013.

Unbelievable! Cavaliers 102 Heat 90

The Cavaliers with only 15 wins are having a disappointing season, no doubt.

But they’ve had their moments, beating star-studded teams in the Lakers, Celtics and Knicks.
Now, they’ve beaten the one team everybody said could not be beaten by anybody; the Miami Heat with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade.
James, the former local hero-turned enemy, was making his second return to Cleveland since leaving as a free agent last summer.
The Cavs almost blew a 23-point lead, as the Cavs took down the mighty Heat, 102-90.
J.J. Hickson scored 21 points and Anthony Parker had 20 points for the Cavs who got revenge on the Heat and James who embarrassed them 118-90 on December 2, the first time James returned to Cleveland.
James had a nice game but nothing great, 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds. He said after the game that his former team deserves to have a winning team.
The sellout crowd of 20,562 received a scare when the Heat came back from 23-points down to tie it at 83 on Mike Bibby’s seventh three-point goal of the game with 7:03 left. But the Heat went on scoreless for 4:24 and the Cavs took advantage going on a 12-0 run to put the game away.
Cavs shooting guard Anthony Parker took the public address microphone after the game and told the crowd, ” You deserve this win.”
The loss snapped the Heat’s five-game winning streak.

Cavs turn tables on Lakers, 104-99

The Cleveland Cavaliers proved the old adage of anybody-can-beat-anybody when they hung a loss on the arrogant Los Angeles Lakers, 104-99.

35 days ago the Lakers were clowning around and laughing as they routed the Cavaliers in LA 112-57, a record for margin of loss in team history of 55 points.

The Cavs stayed in the game from the outset to the delight of the sellout crowd at Quicken Loans Arena.

Ramon Sessions, who came into the game early when Mo Williams re-injured his right ankle, scored a team-high 32 points and dished out eight assists.

Sessions had help all across the board as Antawn Jamison scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Anthony Parker chipped in with 18 points and nine assists and J.J. Hickson provided 13 points and collared 15 rebounds.

Pau Gasol scored 30 points and hauled down 20 rebounds. Kobe Bryant had 17 points and 12 rebounds, but he was only 8 of 24 from the field, committed seven turnovers and was hounded defensively all night by Parker, Jamarrio Moon and Christian Eyenga.

Cavs getting worse and worse; loses to Toronto

The Cleveland Cavaliers the five seasons prior to this nightmare year, used to be one of the best defensive teams in the league under former coach Mike Brown. But now, they’re one of the worst.

The Cavs are a complete mess and yes, LeBron James is one of the reasons. They lost to Toronto 120-105.

Defensively, the Cavs gave up 62 points in the lane and allowed the worst three-point shooting team in the NBA to shoot 50 percent from the three-point area and 56.8 percent overall.

Cleveland has lost eight straight and 18th in the last 19 games to drop to 8-27.

The Raptors were led by Andrea Bargnani with 25 points and eight rebounds, Leandro Barbosa with 22 points for the second time this season and Jose Calderon added 20 points with a season-high 17 assists.

The Cavs, playing without J.J. Hickson, because he missed a mandatory practice earlier in the week and Anthony Parker with a bad back, were led by Antawn Jamison with 32 points who made 5 of 7 three-point goals.

The Cavaliers will not be home again until January 19. Cleveland is just 3-16 on the road and has lost 15 in a row.
