AUDIO: John Michael Previews Cavs Second Half

Written by
The Cleveland Cavaliers are at the halfway point in the season. Technically, they are more than halfway, but now that the all-star break is over, the team is focused on getting healthy for the playoffs.

John Michael, the play-by-play voice of the Cavaliers, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the bumps in the road and the silver linings. Those bumps have come from injuries, first to JR Smith and now to Kevin Love. As far as Smith, Michael believes he is still a ways away from returning to the lineup.

The silver linings, according to Michael, are the additions of Kyle Korver and Derrick Williams, who have stabilized the rotation. Still, the Cavs may make some type of signing, with a veteran backup point guard being a top need.
