The Kyrie Irving-for-Isaiah Thomas trade rocked the boat. It's not LeBron's job to coach the Cavaliers, but it's certainly his job to lead them on and off the court.
And they haven't even been close. On average they've won 64.6 games and the lowest number they've won in a full 82-game season is 58. The headlines from Toronto's 133-99 blowout win over Cleveland were more about the Cavs' struggles than the Raptors' success.
Nobody doubts the Cavs are good enough offensively to win their second title in three years.
IN ranks 14th in assists per game (22.7) while Cleveland ranks last in assists allowed per game (25.8). They had 31 assists against the Cavs, compared to the 15 they had versus the Heat.
Scroll down to check out some of the reactions to the Cavs recent struggles.
To add insult to injury, he was then trolled by a high-profile former teammate.
Told of Lue's suggestion [that some players have an agenda], LeBron James said "I would hope not". "It's not for everybody. Every single time we come in here to practise". "Family is not always about a bed of roses". But once again, it's January, the halfway-point of the season, and the Cavs seem to be falling apart. "We're not there totally yet, we're getting there". The Cavs, since LeBron has been back to Cleveland, have played 14, 14, 13.
Judging by his mid-game takeover of the huddle seen above, it's obvious that he's extremely passionate about improving, but if that passion turns into frustration, it could definitely spell trouble. LeBron was captured yelling at Handy and others during a timeout. After beginning the season 5-7, they rattled off an 18-1 stretch before falling into the current slump. They now rank third in offensive rating and fourth in defensive rating.
"Maybe it's meant to be a wake-up call", veteran forward Channing Frye said.
Victor Oladipo and Thaddeus Young led the Pacers with 10 points apiece in the half, while Jefferson chipped in eight in just six minutes, but also accumulated three fouls. I don't have them.
"We've all got to be accountable for actions, accountable for how we play, how hard we play, what we're doing for one another", James said.
It's perhaps the most telling sign yet that the 29-11 Raptors - who have already locked down the best record the franchise has ever had at the halfway point of season with Game 41 still to play Saturday night - are better positioned to leverage it into something meaningful in the second half and beyond. "Just trying to hold everybody accountable and move on, which we did".
Lue didn't elaborate on his forceful comment. "Defensively everybody's on an island playing defense by themselves". "It's just been a process of us learning a right rhythm, finding a comfort within it". You really don't get too excited because you understand the next day you got to come in here and prepare for Golden State, you know. "It's a good test for us".
It was starting to look like the same kind of lop-sided score-line from their lacklustre 2017 playoff series - only this time the opposite team was dominating. "I think it sends that message to everyone in the locker room".
In the meantime, the Cavaliers can't just wait for the turnaround to happen, because it has happened so many times before.
