HOUSTON, TX – The National Basketball Association (NBA) and Sprint tipped off 2013 NBA All-Star Balloting today during a special event in Houston, the Official Host City of NBA All-Star 2013. NBA All-Star Balloting presented by Sprint will begin today at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Cavaliers backup point guard Donald Sloan is one of the Wine and Gold’s more laid-back players. But on the hardwood, he’s one of the club’s toughest scrappers.
The Dallas native played four years for Texas A&M and was part of the Aggies’ all-time most successful class and earned several all-Big 12 honors. Before coming to Cleveland midway through last season, Sloan had short stints with Sacramento and Atlanta, but also spent time playing in the D-League and the Philippines.
The Cleveland Cavaliers (2-5) will wrap up their six-game road trip tonight in their first-ever meeting with the Brooklyn Nets (3-2) at the Barclays Center, tip off at 7:30 p.m.
The Wine and Gold look to end a three-game losing streak while the Nets are looking to notch their third-straight victory.

#CavsTop5 Plays of Week Two.
Cavs forward Tristan Thompson has parlayed a summer of solid work into a successful start to his sophomore season.
The 6-9, 227-pounder is one of the squad’s most unique individuals – and not just because he’s ambidextrous and from Canada. He’s also one of the Cavaliers’ best guys. And he’s taking your questions.
Here’s your chance to ask Tristan whatever’s on your mind: from his relationship with Kyrie to the state of Canadian basketball to his thoughts on the recent road trip.
The young Cavaliers are working their way through a tough six-game trip, and not all the numbers have been good – Coach Scott would be quick to admit that. But the junket has seen some serious growth and some breakout performances and a pair of Cavaliers near the top of the NBA’s statistical heap.
As the Wine and Gold prepare to close out the roadie on Tuesday night in Brooklyn, here’s a look at some positive digits from the first five games …
On the fourth quarter:
“I think the main thing is that Russell [Westbrook] got hot. [The Thunder] got some transition baskets and we took out most of our starters to try to give them some rest. Our second unit guys didn’t react that well. They got a nice little run.”
