“[A] a loss Friday at Memphis and Byron Scott will also have his named tied — twice — to the longest single-season losing streak in NBA history. He played on the Vancouver Grizzlies’ team that lost 23 in a row during their expansion season. The Cavs can tie that mark with a loss to those same Grizzlies tonight.” [Jason Lloyd]

“Scott is hinting at replacing Harris in the starting lineup in favor of veteran Anthony Parker. Harris said he has no druthers about starting or coming off the bench. ‘Like anyone in this league, they’d rather start,’ he said. ‘I know I’m just a rookie and have good guys ahead of me.'” [Bob Finnan]

“The pressure of trying to end the misery was at the forefront of Ramon Sessions’ mind at the end of the game against the Pacers, the point guard admitted Thursday. Nerves kicked in. He was rattled. His drive to the basket with 11.9 seconds left ended with a whipped pass to J.J. Hickson that bounced off the center’s hands and became a turnover.” [Jodie Valade]

Sebastian Pruiti over at NBA Playbook, which is just an excellent site, breaks down the Cavs’ atrocious perimeter defense, which killed them against the Pacers in the fourth quarter.
