Cavaliers Not Firing Tyronn Lue Despite Another Loss

The Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling to crawl themselves out of a rut that saw them suffer another ugly loss, this time at the hands of the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.

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.

Love underwent surgery on his injured toe at the beginning of November and he was initially projected to be available to return around Christmas, but now his projected timetable of return seems to be the middle of January.

With one of the worst records in the NBA, Cleveland can afford to take their time with Love and bring him back slowly.

Published

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”
