This bleakness is best summarized in quotes:

“[Byron Scott] has threatened them with lineup changes. He has screamed at them at halftime. Now he is challenging their pride and their manhood” [Jason Lloyd]

“At some point, pride has to enter into the equation for the Cavaliers.” [Bob Finnan]

“I might keep calling each game a debacle until the Cavs actually win, because each of the last five losses has been a pathetic display of basketball ineptitude.” [Michael Curry]

“‘Have they stopped listening to you?’ Scott was asked after the game.” [Mary Schmitt Boyer]

“In less than a week, the Cavaliers have lost to the last-place team in three separate divisions.  Oh, the losses were also by an average of 21 points.  This came on top of the 28-point loss to the Heat that left many Clevelanders questioning the heart of this team.” [Brendan of WFNY]

On The Twitters

Brad Daugherty to Cleveland re: LeBron — “Get over it” #LeBron #Cavs” [Vince Grzegorek]

“Bulls come to town with a healthy Carlos Boozer and an MVP candidate in Rose. Could get real ugly real fast tonight.” [realcavsfans]

“Can a team pack it in 20 games into a season? Just wondering.” [Bob Finnan]
