Pargo lighting it up in his start. JP is driving around Jrue Holiday at will and has 11 points in 10 minutes of playing time as Cleveland leads Philly 36-19.

Happy for Jeremy! 13 points at the half, on 5 of 10 shooting, Cavs leading the Sixers 47-35. The Cavs had lost six games heading into this game. Sixers were 7 and 4. Hope they hold on for the win.

Wow! Career night for Jeremy! 28 points as the Cavs win it 92-83 (http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400277879). Wish I could have watched it but it was fun to listen on the audio feed.

Way to make the most of your opportunity, JP!

I never thought I'd type the words, "Anderson Varejao's 19 rebounds were overshadowed by 28 points from Jeremy Pargo."

Cavs coach Byron Scott, smiling, on if he was surprised by Jeremy Pargo's 28 points: "Nah, I saw it all coming."

Post-game video interview (http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/video/2012/11/21/postgamepargo121121avi-2300980) with Jeremy. Love that guy.

Also, the coach talks about Jeremy in this video (http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/video/2012/11/21/postgamecoach121121avi-2300987).

Possible good news for Pargo, Cavs release Donald Sloan, the other backup point guard, per Ohio.com (http://www.ohio.com/news/top-stories/cavaliers-claim-shaun-livingston-off-waivers-release-donald-sloan-1.360493).

As for the point guard scenario, Scott last week called Pargo the “wild card” and thought Sloan was better served for close games because of his steady hand and consistency.

Cavs play the Wizards at 4:00 today.
“I feel more comfortable with Donald when the game is close,” Scott said last week. “Donald doesn’t go in and make mistakes.”

Scott gave the example of the recent game against the New York Knicks, when the Cavs were hanging tough on the road. He had intended to use Pargo as the backup, but with the game tight, he changed his mind and went to Sloan. Yet Sloan isn’t as dynamic as Pargo, who averaged 14.5 points and 4.4 assists in 11 starts while Irving was sidelined with a fractured left index finger.

“If you’re down 10, J.P. is a guy you can throw in the game and get it tied quick,” Scott said. “Or you can go down 20. You just don’t know.”

Pargo played 13 minutes in Saturday’s win over the Milwaukee Bucks. He shot just 1-of-5, but he had two assists and didn’t turn the ball over. The spot minutes and inconsistent playing time can be challenging, but Sloan’s release may clear more minutes for Pargo.

“It’s a mental thing,” Pargo said. “Be focused and come out and do what you can every opportunity you get. I come out and try to do my job whenever I get the opportunity.”
