Game 14: Cavs at Spurs
Radio/TV: WTAM (1100 AM)/Fox Sports Ohio
They weren't going to go into San Antonio and beat the high-flying Spurs, who came seconds away from winning an NBA title last year.
They have now won 10 in a row and are are tied with Indiana for the best record in the NBA.
So, now the Cavs are 4-10 overall, 1-8 on the road. I'm starting to wonder if they'll ever see .500 again.
"It's still early," the sympathizers say.
I say that's bunk. They are displaying terrible signs. Coach Mike Brown is juggling the lineup on a nightly basis. The rotation is a joke. The players don't know their roles.
The Cavs never led on Saturday. The Spurs eked out a 43-point lead at one point.
They also drained 18 of 23 from the 3-point line. For those of you keeping track at home, that's 66.7 percent from behind the arc.
They also shot 57.5 percent from the field. They execute teams to death. They also find the open man and move the ball.
Brown said after the game the only positive thing to come out of it is that the Cavs got to see how it should be done.
I'd have to say center Andrew Bynum's season-high 16 points and six rebounds was a positive sign. He's been ready to have a breakthrough game for about a week. He appeared in both games of the back-to-back, which is also a good thing.
Also, Matthew Dellavedova had a career-high 14 points.
On the dark side, veteran guard Jarrett Jack injured his neck and didn't return. That's not a good thing since C.J. Miles is already sidelined with a strained calf.
Rookie Anthony Bennett also had a career-high nine points. He looked good in mop-up duty.
In case you were wondering, the Spurs haven’t lost to the Cavs since a 97-86 setback in San Antonio on Feb. 27, 2009.
UP NEXT: The Cavs host Miami at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena.
