2. They dropped to 0-2 on the West Coast trip. Yes, an 0-3 trip is plausible. If they defend in the Denver game like they have in the previous two, they will limp home winless on this journey. The Jazz shot 50.6 percent from the field, one night after Portland shot 49 percent. They just aren't stopping anyone.
3. The Cavaliers just aren't sharing the basketball. They dished out a franchise-low six assists, two in the first half. That's ridiculous. Point guard Kyrie Irving had a game-high 34 points. In 45 minutes, he didn't have an assist. Something is wrong here.
4. Cavaliers swingman Mike Miller called Coach David Blatt's offense "borderline genius" in the preseason. Sorry, but I've seen absolutely no evidence of that.
6. The Jazz's big-man rotation of Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert totally dominated the Cavaliers. They combined for 46 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks. You think the Cavaliers could use a big man? No question.
7. Power forward Kevin Love failed to get a double-double for the first time this season. He ended with 14 points and eight rebounds. The Cavaliers were smoked on the boards, 41-30. They've been outrebounded in three of their four games. I mistakenly thought they'd be the best rebounding team in the league. Boy, was I wrong. That trend has to end for this team to be successful.
7. We're still waiting for Miller to make an impactful play. He attempted a rushed 3-pointer for his only shot. Note to Miller: Shoot the darn ball. That's why you were brought aboard.
