Leadoff with Lee 1.20.15 #Cavs #Browns #NoahSpence

By @cleeverizon

- The Cavs are on a 3 game winning streak after defeating the Bulls 108-94. All five Cavs starters scored in double digits with LeBron James leading the way with 26 points. Kevin Love and Timofey Mozgov each had a double-double with 16 points, 12 rebounds and 15 points 15 rebounds, respectfully. 2015 all-Star hopeful Kyrie Irving also had a double-double scoring 18 points and dishing 12 dimes. JR Smith also scored 20 points, knocking down 6 of 9 3-pointers. The Cavs shot 45% from the floor and out rebounded the Bulls 54-40 in the game. Derrick Rose struggled, shooting 5-14 for 18 points. Jimmy Butler added 20, while Pau Gasol had 11 points and 11 rebounds. The Cavaliers are back on the floor Wednesday night when they take on the Utah Jazz.

- Urban Meyer and a handful of Ohio State football players, including QB Cardale Jones, made a trip to The Q to watch the Cavs take on the Bulls. My question is when was the last time anyone of these dudes were actually in class? Do they take online classes or something? But really think about the football teams activities the past 10 days or so... Just saying.                                      
- This is not the year of the quarterback to play in the Pro Bowl. Philip Rivers is out because of a back injury. Tom Brady and Russell Wilson are out to prepare for the Super Bowl. Ben Roethlisberger pulled out to recover from in season injuries and Aaron Rogers has a calf injury and will not likely play. Peyton Manning also removed himself due to his quad injury.

- The Browns will interview Anthony Lynn (Jets) and Al Saunders(Raiders) for the offensive coordinator job in Mobile, Alabama, the site of the Senior Bowl, either today or Wednesday.

- The 49ers and Rams requested permission to speak with Colts special assistant Rob Chudzinski for offensive coordinator job. He will interview with both by weeks end.

- Wide receiver Devin Smith and defensive back Doran Grant of National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes are in Mobile, Alabama practicing for this weekends Senior Bowl. They will play on the North team.

- The now former Buckeye defensive end Noah Spence has transferred to Eastern Kentucky. Spence was declared permanently ineligible after failing a second drug test that is administered by the Big 10. He tested positive for ecstasy in December 2013. He was suspended for the 2014 Orange Bowl and the first two games of the 2014 season. He failed the second test late last summer which led to the indefinite suspension. Entering the season, Noah Spence was a sure first round draft pick, but due to his indiscretions, his projections dropped him between a low 3rd - 5th round pick. Spence can play with Eastern Kentucky immediately as they are in the F.C.S (Football Championship Subsivision) formally known as D1AA.
