Cleveland came into this season with playoff dreams, but their 3-7 start has been more nightmare. They have not looked anything like a team headed to the postseason. Not close. They have one of the worst offenses in the NBA this season (29th in points per possession) with their two leading scorers — Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters — both shooting under 40 percent on the season.
In the wake of that Cleveland held a players meeting Wednesday after another ugly loss (they have lost three in a row right now) but it got intense, reports Brian Windhorst at ESPN.com.
The Cavaliers held a players-only meeting following Wednesday’s 29-point loss to the Minnesota, multiple sources told ESPN.com. But the meeting got contentious, and players confronted each other, according to sources.
We don’t have the details of who said what. Team meetings tend to be overrated — we credit more success to them then they deserve. Not sure this one helped as Friday they Cavaliers blew a 12-point lead in the second half to lose to the Bobcats.
Mike Brown and Irving need to get on the same page and get the offense clicking. Heading into Saturday night the Cavaliers are the third worst team in the league in both eFG% and getting to the free throw line (per possession).
