After last night's 103-74 blowout loss to the Spurs, the Cleveland Cavaliers' find themselves in second place in the Eastern Conference for the first time since November of 2015 (from then till now they had at least shared the first place record). In their last 17 games, stemming from February 25th, the Cavs are a measly 7 & 10.
The Cavs superstars have been very outspoken in recent months about their struggles, as we all know Lebron James has no problem airing out his teammates and pointing fingers, but now Kyrie Irving has joined in on the festivities, but he didn't hesitate to also throw himself under the bus. Irving was seen putting up shots after the loss last night, after he barely produced anything worth noting, finishing with 8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 turnovers. Irving said that it was time to "face the music", and that is something we can all agree on.
The Cavs have been the favorite out of the East from the moment the season started, so it is certainly cause for concern that they have been struggling as of late, particularly right as the playoffs are about to start. The East is weak after the top 3 or 4 teams, but both the Celtics and Wizards can, in my opinion, beat the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals, especially if the Cavs continue to struggle. The Wizards and Celtics have not only been strong all season, but they have continued their success as of late. The Celtics have won 7 of their last 10, and while the Wizards have only won 6 of their last 10 and have dropped 3 bad losses, I still don't doubt they will come out hot in the playoffs.
Personally, I want the Cavs to get their act together, because although I find Lebron as annoying as the next person, the last thing I possibly want to see from this NBA season is a Warriors Championship, and I think the Cavs, and Lebron are the only ones who can beat the Warriors. The Cavs need to get their heads on straight, and start coming out hot and finishing games, and stop pointing fingers.
Oh, and maybe Tristan Thompson should cut the-liability-that-is Khloe Kardashian loose, and get rid of that Kardashian-Curse just like James Harden did... don't be selfish Tristan.. do what's needed for the team!! We know you love your baby momma more anyway, and so does Khloe!
