Cavaliers-Rockets Recap: It's Looking Pretty Bleak In Cleveland

Many are considering the idea that they might not make the Finals this season, resulting in another LeBron James departure from the Land in this summer's free agency. Washington shot 54 percent and had 35 assists, the fourth straight game with 30 or more. Chris Paul could have waited for his sixth 3-pointer in the first three quarters to discuss riding a banana boat on a bayou.

Should James' frustration boil over and he leaves, it would be natural for Cleveland to deal Love-though it's unclear what kind of haul it could get in return. And there's going to be a lot of talk about players quitting on the organization. The best example was acquiring Channing Frye from Orlando two years ago for Jared Cunningham and a second-round pick. Even with Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza out, the Rockets took target practice from deep.

He wants to see players brought in via trade this week who will help the Cavs win this season, get back to the Finals, and challenge the Warriors (or, heck, the Rockets) for a title.

Detroit ran the clock down and on the next possession Griffin found a wide-open Smith who sank his only three-point attempt of the game with 14 seconds left to restore the lead to six points.

Saturday night wasn't the first time Cleveland has gotten humiliated in front of a national audience. However, when you consider how jovial James was at the start of the season and the 1,883 minutes he's played so far this season with 30.8 percent usage rate at 33-years-old, the players probably understand they're seeing a frustrated and tired James. That fact is largely because of one player in LeBron James. The addition of Isaiah Thomas is (predictably) not working out well.

"We didn't have no fight", Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said after the game (ESPN).

As remarkable was how they shut down the Cavs on the other end. They let a almost $5 million trade exception expire last month, in part because it would cost the Cavs millions in salary and tax penalties to waive one of their current players in order to make room.James has a $35.6 million player's option on his contract next season. The Cavs were without Kevin Love but that was not an excuse for the bad outing.

Down 26 at the half, the Cleveland crowd rained down the boos on their squad who have lost 12 of thier last 18.

Gilbert never returned to his chair in the Rockets' 120-88 win Saturday.
