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.

The Raptors, showing signs of fatigue throughout the game from playing their fourth game in five nights and were without the services of Andrea Bargnani and Amir Johnson, trailed from the opening tap, due to poor shooting and bad defense, fell behind by 22 points in the first half.

The Cavaliers had a nice distribution of points with Baron Davis scoring 19 and Ramon Sessions adding 15.

The crowd of 14,886 saw Jerryd Bayless score 28 points to lead the Raptors, followed by DeMar De Roazan with 19, Reggie Evans had a season-high 15 points and 13 rebounds and Sonny Weems chipped in with 17 points.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have done well this season when they have balanced scoring in the lineup.

In their recent 99-89 win over the injury-depleted Charlotte Bobcats, they had seven players in double figures scoring.

Ramon Sessions led the way with 18 points, J.J. Hickson scored 16 points and collected 19 rebounds, Ryan Hollins chipped in with 16 and Alonzo Gee had 13 points.

D.J. Augustin led Charlotte with 22 points.

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.

Baron Davis becoming late-game scorer for Cavs (file photo)

The Cavaliers and Pistons have gone from annual playoff teams in the NBA to lottery pick contestants.

The Cavs are finding out which players that they can help them in the future.

J.J. Hickson, one of the Cavs’ best big men and new point guard Baron Davis helped fuel the team’s most recent win, 97-91 over the Detroit Pistons in Quicken Loans Arena, breaking a four-game losing streak.

Hickson, who is the new power forward, scored 24 points and 15 rebounds.

Davis, is becoming the Cavs’ new late-game scorer that has been lacking since LeBron James picked up and left for Miami last summer.

Davis’ three-point goal with 9.9 seconds remaining clinched the game one play after fellow backcourt mate Daniel Gibson hit a 17-foot jumper to give Cleveland a 94-91 lead.

Davis finished with 16 points.
