The Cavaliers return to their home court for game five of what’s become an intense battle against Toronto in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavs have lost two playoff games in a row after winning their first 10. Commentator Terry Pluto talks about how the Cavs need to adjust:

After winning the first game of the series by 31 points, Pluto changed his prediction that the series would go six games -- thinking maybe it would be another sweep for the Cavs. Now the series is tied at two games apiece.

"It’s very a serious series right now," he says. 

The Cavs remained undefeated in the playoffs on Tuesday, with a dominating 115-84 win over the Toronto Raptors in the opening game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Our commentator Terry Pluto  had predicted the Cavs-Raptors series will go six games. Now, he's not so sure.

The NBA’s decision to allow teams to sell advertising space on jerseys could mean big money for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Crain’s Cleveland Business reports advertising on a jersey like LeBron James’ could be worth more than a million dollars. That high-dollar value isn’t confined to King James.

The Cleveland Cavaliers entered the second-half of the season by welcoming a new player and saying goodbye to a veteran. It’s all part of the plan to try to win the NBA championship that they just barely missed out on last year. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto talks about the moves and what they mean for the Cavs. 

The Cavs upset fans when they traded 12-year veteran Anderson Varejao in exchange for Orlando Magic forward Channing Frye just before last week's deadline. Pluto says it was a bittersweet move.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired Coach David Blatt, who led the team to the NBA Finals last season.

Blatt was hired in 2014, just after winning the Euroleague title with Maccabi Tel Aviv. But WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto points out that Blatt also came aboard just before LeBron James announced he would be returning to the Cavs after four years with the Miami Heat.
