Cavs vs. Raptors, Game 2

The media talks about the regression of Ohio State quarterback Terrell Pryor. We're watching the regression of the Cavs' offense - right before our eyes.

No one expected John Kuester to be missed all that much. Sure, he was a very good assistant coach, who was the Cavs' offensive coordinator last year. Of course, he left when he was hired by the Detroit Pistons as their head coach.

But the Cavs offense has been downright putrid early on in the season. The Cavs shot 31 percent from the field in the first half of Wednesday's game. They had just 8 turnovers at halftime.

But something is wrong, desperately wrong. It's Mike Malone's job to find the right combinations. He's been entrusted with the offense this year.

-- F/C Anderson Varejao said his nose was bloodied on a play near the basket when he was bashed in the face. No blood, no foul? He can't even get a call when he's bloodied.
-- G Boobie Gibson apparently got X-rays after the game. It's unknown if he was injured.
