Steve Blake posts second career triple-double in Wednesday's whopping of the Cavs in Cleveland. Blake finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 15 assists.
Blake's performance, a night after going 0-for-2 from the floor in his first game back from injury, went off in his second game back, which is more of an indication of how poor of a defensive team the Cavs are then it is anything else. So, do not read too much into Blake's breakout game and look for the trifecta in the Cavs next game against the Wizards, meaning the third point guard to post a triple-double against them in as many games.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Philip Rivers says trade talk didn’t come from his side.
This whole situation has been much to do about nothing. Rivers said he planned to play out his contract which expires after 2015 instead of sign an extension which caused rumors to swirl. "A lot of moving parts and lots to think about. Location, family, team … All I can say at this point regarding an extension is I’m willing to listen to anything. I’m also willing to play it out. I’m just fired up to be the Chargers QB in 2015," Rivers said. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Rougned Odor is a candidate to be demoted.
He's currently slashing .146/.263/.244 with a 21-percent strikeout rate and a 50-percent ground ball rate. There hasn't been a point at all where it even looked like he was going to work himself out of this slump, so the Rangers are going to have to take a hard look at what they have, which isn't much. If you've been saddled with him in AL-only play, we hope you've already found at least a viable placeholder. Analysis: Howard Bender
