All-Star break is upon us
The Cavaliers were 31-22 at the All-Star break last year. They went on to win 50 games for the second consecutive season. It's possible they can win 50 games again, but not probable. They'd have to finish 21-9 in the second half.
Cavs forward LeBron James reminded everyone that the Cavs are a strong second-half team, but that might be too much.
The Cavs could have forward/center Anderson Varejao back soon. He's so important to the success of this team, especially on the defensive end.
Swingman Sasha Pavlovic, though, won't be heard from for some time. His sprained mid-foot was just taken out of a cast. He's looking at least two or three more weeks before he can start running.
The All-Star break couldn't come at a better time for center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who is still bothered by back spasms. He's been keeping things quiet, but he's been in a lot of discomfort.
