Cavs Have Weathered the Injury StormMore than three weeks ago, I wrote about The Potential Impact of Big Z's Injury. The Cleveland Cavaliers had only lost five games by that point and I suggested that they might lose five more games before Zydrunas Ilgauskas returned to action.

Before he got hurt they were on pace to set an all-time record for point differential; they have slowed down significantly in that regard but, largely thanks to LeBron James and Anderson Varejao, they have been just successful enough to stay on top of the Eastern Conference standings, as I note in my newest article for CavsNews.com:
