“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; make it hot by striking” - William B. Sprague Cleveland,

The mission has not changed. In fact, the level of energy, motivation and determination by those of us in every part of your Cleveland Cavaliers franchise has never been higher or stronger. We will play to win. Every season. Every game. Every minute. Why? You. The thousands of emails, letters, notes, phone calls and words of support you shared with us this past summer has fueled every one of us with a further heightened sense of will-power and grit to deliver the incredibly loyal and passionate fans of the Cavaliers the ultimate prize. That prize is an NBA championship. No fan base deserves it more. No city deserves it more. Words will never express the gratitude and appreciation for the overwhelming support and confidence you showered upon this franchise over the past few months. There will be nothing we do not explore. There will be no amount of time, capital, brain-power or ingenuity we will not invest if we believe it will contribute to our chances of success. The train has left. It will not stop until it pulls into “Larry O’Brien Station #1”. I am looking forward to enjoying the ride with you. Onward and upward.

Cleveland vs. indiana Tipoff: 7:00

pm, Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011

Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Central Division rival Indiana Pacers will face off for the fourth and final time this season. Through the first three games against the Pacers, Antawn Jamison averaged 16.0 points and 8.7 rebounds in 29.7 minutes per game. Danny Granger is leading Indiana with 29.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 36.7 minutes per game against the Cavs this season. Cleveland leads the all-time series 81-79 and has won 10 of the last 12 contests versus Indiana at The Q.

Cavs forward J.J. Hickson has recorded five double-doubles in 10 games between Jan. 7-25.

Cavaliers forward J.J. Hickson has come on strong since making the transition to the center position. In the team’s 10 contests played between Jan. 7-25, the third-year pro recorded five doubledoubles and averaged 13.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 29.2 minutes per game. Last Tuesday versus Boston, Hickson had 12 points, 17 rebounds, a career-high five assists and four blocks, becoming the first Cavalier to have at least those numbers since Larry Nance had 18 points, 18 rebounds, seven assists and four blocks on January 19, 1989 at Indiana. After tonight’s contest, the Cavs will play at Memphis on Friday and return to The Q on Saturday to take on Portland.

The Pacers are one of the league’s best shot blocking teams, swatting 6.0 shots per game (4th in NBA). The team is also grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game, while holding opponents to just .442 shooting from the field. Danny Granger is Indiana’s leading scorer with 21.3 points per game to go along with 5.6 rebounds in 36.8 minutes per game. He is also shooting .381 from behind the three-point line.
