“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.

pm, Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2011

Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns will play each other for the second and last time this season. In their first meeting just 10 days ago, Manny Harris (27 points, eight rebounds), J.J. Hickson (23 points, 17 rebounds) and Antawn Jamison (23 points, seven rebounds) all gave strong efforts, but the Suns shot 13-28 from deep and outscored the Cavs 27-19 in the fourth quarter to win 108-100 at US Airways Center. Cleveland trails the all-time series 58-38, but has won four of the last five meetings against Phoenix. The Cavaliers had a season-high seven players score in double figures against Denver on Saturday. Against the Nuggets, Ramon Sessions had a near double-double with team highs of 21 points and nine assists. The first-year Cavalier has put up solid numbers over his last 10 games, averaging 14.5 points on .521 shooting, 3.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 27.9 minutes per game. He is also shooting 45-51 (.882) from the free throw line over that span. After tonight, the Cavs will host Central Division rival Milwaukee on Friday before embarking on a three-game road trip with stops in Chicago, New Jersey and Boston.

Cavaliers guard Ramon Sessions is averaging 14.5 points and 5.8 assists in 27.9 minutes over his last 10 games.
