So, the Cavaliers’ season has gone up in flames in recent days.
They’re losing easy game sin blowout fashion, players are point fingers at each other, and now thc coach is starting to get some serious heat.
Via Cavs beat writer, Joe Vardon:
Some (Cavs) wonder why Lue doesn’t use lineups that are more matchup based. When playing teams with big centers, players say, start Thompson at center. As a former player, Lue thinks making a change during a losing streak sends a message that it was one guy’s fault they lost.
So basically, Lue isn’t making adjustments because he’s afraid to hurt someone’s feelings. And while there’s no doubt a lot more that goes into it, it seems necessary to change things around in the face of failure.
With this report, it begs the question: is Lue to blame for the team’s recent slide? For his sake, he better convince everyone that he’s not… or else big changes could be on the way.
