“The official count might be up for debate, but Byron Scott has seen this before from his Cavaliers. He’s seen this sleepwalking performance, this lack of effort, this kind of 95-75 loss they had to Oklahoma City on Sunday afternoon at The Q. Has it been three or four times? More? Less?” [Jodie Valade]

“One game after the Cavs held a team meeting following a 20-point loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Scott ripped them again Sunday for showing no heart in a 20-point loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He keeps asking how much heart his players have, and they keep responding by not showing much. Not good.” [Jason Lloyd]

“Ramon hasn’t played well the last week. I don’t care what the circumstances are. He hasn’t played well.” [Byron Scott via Brian Dulik]

“Coach Scott will continue to demand the best effort his players can give, and the players will likely respond every couple of games and have a shot at winning. It is not out of the question to say that the Cavs could even see another extended losing streak – they have lost four in a row, and seven of their last ten.” [Rick Grayshock]
