The Cavs lose an embarrassing game, and fall to 2-1.
We have this type of game each year, vs a bad team with a few starters out and we just get out hustled by the opposing team. We act like we’re playing a high school team, resulting in an embarrassing loss.
-We has a very, very, very slow start to the game. Our defense was really bad along with our rebounding and passing. We also couldn’t buy a bucket in the first half.
-Dwyane Wade had another below average game. He’s really struggling to find his groove with us so far.
-Our 3 Point defense was trash just like last year.
-Jae Crowder was 0-3, 0 points and 4 fouls. Not a great game.
-LeBron played well in the first half and slowed down in the 2nd.
-We came within 7 at some points but then one of our players came off the bench and ruined the tempo.
-We we’re down by as many as 37 points in this game which embarrassing because we’re supposed to be the 2nd best team in the NBA.
-Jeff Green had another good game with us.
-Iman Shumpert caught fire from deep in the 4th quarter and played well defensively.
Our next game is on Tuesday vs the Bulls.

Eye opener for the Cavs tonight, with a 114-93 loss to the Magic where we never led once. It doesn’t matter how good you are. If you don’t follow your defensive schemes and have a game plan on offense, anyone will beat you. LeBron played incredible, would’ve had 12-15 assists if guys made shots, and Love had his moments but overall, nobody showed up.
Game MVP: Kevin Love
James: 22p, 4r, 2a
Love: 19p, 9r
Shumpert: 21p, 7r, 2a
