Cavs lose another, this time by 34.
Just days after suffering a 28-point loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota, the Cleveland Cavaliers took the court in Toronto against a team that was missing two of their best players, Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka.
The result? A blowout victory. In favor of the Toronto Raptors.
Last night's 133-99 loss to the Raptors marks the Cavs' most lopsided defeat of the season and their seventh loss in the last 10 games. Even without Lowry and Ibaka, the Raptors picked apart Cleveland's atrocious defense, including Fred VanVleet who scored a team-high 22 points in 24 minutesoff the bench. Seven different players scored in double figures for the Raptors en route to their 34-point victory.
After another embarrassing loss, Tyronn Lue told reporters that the team needs "to get rid of our agendas." When LeBron was informed of Lue's comments during his post-game interview, he responded (h/t ESPN):
"I mean, I would hope not," James said. "I don't [have an agenda]. At this point, three and a half, four years in this thing, I hope not. I don't know. I don't have one. I just want to win. I just like playing ball the right way, getting guys involved and winning the game also. I don't."
Naturally, the Cavs' 34-point loss had twitter buzzing last night.
