Chris Paul: Don't Take LeBron James For Granted

Despite the team's struggles, coach Tyronn Lue's job appears to be safe for the time being. "We didn't have no fight". They've gone 6-11 over their last 17 games since Christmas.

It was the Cavs' eighth straight loss on national television and fourth by 24 or more points since January 1. The sentiment that he checked out may also be a discredit to the Spurs, who were clearly the superior team that year - they won the series in five games, at least three of which were blowouts.

Lue said he may fill Love's spot based on matchups. "That could be on me". They booed the entire roster, as the team went into the locker room down 65-39 at the half. Trevor Ariza, the Rockets' starting small forward, and Eric Gordon, their sixth man, didn't even play due to injuries.

At the end of a fantastic post-game story about where the Cavaliers are and how the clock is ticking on this team, Brian Windhorst of ESPN caught up with Paul after the game.

The Cavs may be considering different strategies for turning things around, but one move that reportedly will not be made is firing Lue. I bust my tail every day. "I control what I can control, and that is what I can control". It's tough for me because that's how I got here.

The biggest problem now for the Cleveland is Kevin Love's hand injury [VIDEO], who is out for the next two months. Hassan Whiteside, who has become the subject of trade rumours, added nine points and eight rebounds. "I don't want to comment on it too much".

"We're not together on both ends", Thomas said. The Cavs announced he was dealing with a left shoulder issue before the game. "I just think our mindset needs to change".

The Rockets have absolutely wrecked the Cavs on Cleveland's home floor so far in this game, as Houston waltzed into halftime with a commanding 65-39 lead.

Near the midpoint in the National Basketball Association season we are starting to get a good idea of what teams are excelling and are preparing for a strong postseason run and the teams that are already looking to tank and get a high draft pick in the offseason.

The Cavaliers are once again led by LeBron James. "We all have to look in the mirror and be better". The Cavaliers star has dealt with accusations of disloyalty on a couple of occasions, after leaving Cleveland for the Heat in 2010 and then returning in 2014.

"It was never us not playing to our ability (in Miami)", he said.
