Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Following the Cleveland Cavaliers' impressive win against the upstart Philadelphia 76ers, proud nerd Channing Frye compared the team's main bench group -- Frye, Kyle Korver, Jeff Green and Dwyane Wade -- to the Dinobots.

For those that don't know, that's a Transformers reference. The Dinobots are a group of rowdy, powerful Autobots capable of wielding heavy firepower against the opposition. That's certainly fitting. After overwhelming the 76ers, outscoring their bench by 27 points and being responsible for two massive runs, the Cavs' refurbished crew upped their season scoring average, now top 5 in that category. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
