Byron Scott is brutally honest in assessing Cavs’ latest loss (VIDEO)

Nov 28, 2012, 1:24 PM EDT

Tuesday night wasn’t a good one for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They managed just 78 points in a home loss to the Suns, and shot 35.7 percent from the field, including a dismal 2-of-15 from three-point range, while committing 18 turnovers and getting outscored in the paint by 14.

Dion Waiters was 7-of-20, Jeremy Pargo was 3-of-12, C.J. Miles was 3-of-11, and Tristan Thompson was 1-of-7.

The lone bright spot was Anderson Varejao, who finished with 20 points on 10-of-15 shooting, to go along with 18 rebounds. He leads the league in that category, by the way, with an average of almost 15 per game.

Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott did us all a favor by succinctly summing up his team’s performance with his opening postgame presser remarks.

“I’ll make this a real quick statement,” he began, with a bit of a smirk. “Andy Varejao was fantastic. Everybody else sucked tonight. Anything else you need to know?”

Nope. That about does it, coach. Thanks.
