The Cavs were on the receiving end of destruction as the Rockets completely embarrassed Cleveland on their own court, 120-88.
While trade rumors swirl in Cleveland, tying the team to a dozen scenarios that would net them help to turn things around, one change that isn’t in the cards is a change to the sidelines.
Head coach Tyronn Lue is staying on board, despite the team’s shortcomings.
“We are not firing our head coach,” one Cavaliers official said, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Lue has expressed frustration with the team, describing the Cavaliers to ESPN’s Lisa Salters at halftime of Saturday’s loss as “soft, weak, no physicality, no toughness, no grit.”, according to Wojnarowski’s report.
While Lue certainly bares his fair share of blame, especially with how terrible the Cavs are on defense, the organization seems willing to stick by him until the bitter end.
