The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-1 in their NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Chicago Bulls.

They have so far survived a season-ending shoulder injury to Kevin Love and a two-game suspension to J.R. Smith.

Tonight, the Cavs get Smith back but there is another obstacle in their way.

Head coach David Blatt says that the team could be without the services of Iman Shumpert for the Game 3 matchup in Chicago.

Shumpert is recovering from a strained groin injury suffered in the second half of Game 2, a 106-91 blowout by the Cavs at home on Wednesday.

The 6’5, 220-pound, 24-year-old Shumpert, a sharpshooting guard, made four 3-point baskets and 15 points filling in for Smith. Shumpert also played well in Game 1, netting 22 points.

Everyone who follows the Cavaliers, media and fans, all agree that the January 5 trade with the New York Knicks that brought J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert gave the team the needed push and it has resulted in 16 wins in 18 games and the team to a 35-22 record and a definitely threat in the Eastern Conference.

Sunday afternoon, Smith and Shumpert made their first return to the Big Apple and played well in Cleveland’s 101-83 win over the Knicks.

Smith scored 17 points and Shumpert came off the bench for four points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Sunday’s game was really over early as the Cavs built up a 36-17 lead in the first quarter and a 62-38 advantage at the half. From there, it was just a matter of what the final score would be.

Cleveland’s big three pulled their weight as well.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 18 points and Kevin Love finished with 16 points while hauling down 16 rebounds. James during the game moved past Allen Iverson and into 22nd place on the NBA career scoring list with 24,383 points.

The Knicks, who have had several losing streaks this season with a 10-45 record, have now lost seven in a row, were led by Langston Galloway with 13 points.

The streaking-hot Cleveland Cavaliers are always trying to find ways to improve their chances of getting to the NBA Finals as the Eastern Conference champion.

The so-called experts have said that they need one more player with an inside presence and to add frontcourt depth.

They may have had a player chose them!

It has been reported by TV, Radio and Newspaper reports that former Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kendrick Perkins has signed a contract with the Cavs.The team has not announced it officially and neither has Perkins said anything about where he will end up. Although Perkins did say he would not mind playing with LeBron James. Those reports have also stated the announcement will come on Monday.

Perkins would be a good fit. The 6’10, 270-pound 30-year-old, won an NBA championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008.

Perkins was waived on Saturday by the Utah Jazz, who had acquired him in a trade deadline deal with the Thunder.

Cavs dominate Pacers, 90-76; fighting Knicks & Hawks for 8th spot in Eastern Conference playoffs

There was a time when everybody said the Cleveland Cavaliers could not win without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

That statement has been proven wrong as peaking Cavs have won four of the past five games without Irving.

In the meantime, other players are stepping up. Dion Waiters, Luol Deng, Jarrett Jack, Tristan Thompson and Spencer Hawes have chipped in to lead the young team.

On Sunday afternoon, Cleveland dominated the East’s best team, the Indiana Pacers, 90-76.

Walters scored 19 points, Deng knocked down 15 and Thompson controlled the boards with 16 rebounds to help in chasing down the Atlanta Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Cavs, who are 14-12 since February 5, might be getting Irving back into action this week as they play at Orlando on Wednesday, at  Atlanta on Friday and host Charlotte on Saturday. The Hawks are injured and sputtering having lost six in a row.

Cleveland ended a nine-game losing streak to the Pacers.

LeBron James is capable of scoring 50-60 points any given night.

On Monday night, the Charlotte Bobcats were the victims as “King James” scored a career-high 61 points in a 124-107 win by the Miami Heat.

James’61 points is a Heat franchise record.

His career-best was a 56-point effort with Cleveland on March 20,2005.

The former Cavs’ star scored 24 points by halftime, 25 in the third quarter and 12 in the fourth quarter before leaving to a standing ovation with 1:24 left in the game.

James was on fire last night, connecting on his first eight three-point field goal attempts and shooting 22 of 33 overall from the floor.
