Chris Paul Warns Cavs Not to Take LeBron James For Granted

Cleveland trailed by as many as 35 on Saturday, and this wasn't even the most lopsided loss this season. Nothing makes a statement quite like beating a contender.

The Cavaliers (30-20) were blown out by the Warriors, 118-108, and the Thunder, 148-124, last month before hosting the Rockets on February 3. They need time apart; to assess themselves individually and their relationship with their teammates without having to see them in 48 hours.

"I'm just at a loss for words actually", James told reporters during a postgame press availability session captured by ESPN. There are so many issues for them at present. Danilo Gallinari also had 24 points. It seems Paul has given us an inside look into James' discontent.

There will always be those who say that the problem is that the Cleveland Cavaliers follow James' lead and that his lack of effort on defense is one of the primary reasons that the Cavs don't play hard on defense.

"The mindset needs to change", Lue said. "When things get tough we have to be tougher". He's going through a puzzling slump, and after scoring just 11 points and taking only 10 shots on Saturday, his night ended with him whipping the ball in disgust toward one hoop as the third quarter horn sounded.

The Rockets, who launched 51 threes and hit 19 of them, led by 12 after 1, 26 at half and 28 after 3 as boos cascaded down from the sellout crowd at just about every timeout.


Although he is well known to be a awful defensive player due to his short height, it has been especially worse for his new team.

"You got LeBron James over there in that locker room", he said. What else the man need to do? "If y'all don't believe in him, then y'all trippin'".

He got little help, with J.R. Smith and Isaiah Thomas a combined 3 of 13 from the 3-point line and no one seeming to have a good guess about how to stop the Rockets' offense, other than to fall so far behind the Rockets got bored. Lue started the second quarter with Thomas, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Kyle Korver and Jeff Green on the court. Chris Paul was two rebounds away from a triple-double with 22 points and 11 assists.

Struggling Cleveland (30-21) never led in falling to 0-7 against the top five teams in the Western Conference, those losses coming by an average of 16.7 points.

Otto Porter scored 20 points and Tomas Satoransky had a career-high 19 to lift the Washington Wizards to a 115-98 victory over the Orlando Magic.

Detroit has won three in a row, the last two with Griffin in the lineup after acquiring him in a trade. Why haven't they fired Tyronn Lue? He's getting exhausted and, having been the only full-time starter to play in every Cavs game, he needs a break.
