On January 20th, the Cleveland Cavaliers went up against the Oklahoma City Thunder. After their 148-124 loss to the Thunder, Cavaliers point guard Isaiah Thomas had some choice words about the team’s current state.
Isaiah Thomas said “In Boston, we were a much better defensive team. We tried harder. I don’t think we’re trusting each other right now.”

The Cavs have been 3-9 dating back to Christmas day. They’re currently one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The 148 points they allowed tied a franchise record that was set in 1972. Their current slump has them now sitting at 27-18.
Cleveland has also been dominating the headlines. There has been information to come out about LeBron James and his lack of ball movement on offense. The Cavs have also been rumored to make trades for Sacramento Kings guard George Hill and Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan before the deadline expires. Tyronne Lue’s job has also to have been rumored in jeopardy as of late.
The Cavaliers will look to spark up a win streak starting Tuesday when they face off against the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs will be without their star small forward Kawhi Leonard.
