The poor basketball and dysfunction for the Clevleand Cavaliers continues. The San Antonio Spurs took down the Cavs 114-102 on Tuesday night, for Cleveland’s 10th loss over the last 13 games.
And a moment in the third quarter summarized how things are going for Cleveland these days, particularly when it comes to Kevin Love.
A day after it was reported that Cavs players held a “fiery” meeting questioning the legitimacy of Kevin Love’s illness that forced him to leave Saturday’s game and be absent from Sunday’s practice, Cavs forward Jae Crowder wouldn’t even help Love off the ground. And of course it was also on a play the Cavs allowed points, because that’s pretty much all they do these days.

The Cavs are expected to make a trade before the Feb. 8 deadline, but it seems unlikely that the addition of one player — that is unlikely to be a team-changing star — is really going to fix this mess. This drama and dysfunction appears to be very real, and things may just get worse before they get better.
