Ty Lue: Cavs' 'mindset needs to change' after latest blowout loss

In the wake of another lopsided defeat to a top team on national television, Cleveland Cavaliers players and coach Ty Lue questioned the effort and trust within the team.

"Don't look like [we tried]. We didn't have no fight," Lue said after the Cavs' 120-88 loss to the Houston Rockets, the team's eighth straight loss on national television and http://www.a7bab-q8.com/robert-golden-jersey-c-1_39.html fourth by 24 or more points since Jan. 1. "I just think our mindset needs to change. I think we need to do things harder."

That has been a common refrain from Lue over the past month as the Cavs have been stuck in a slump that frequently appears to be self-inflicted. Isaiah Thomas said the blowouts aren't a product of toughness issues but trust issues within the locker room.

"We can't just say it was toughness. All they do is Henrik Lundqvist Authentic Jersey shoot 3s. I don't know what's so tough about that," Thomas said. "We're not together on both J.R. Smith Authentic Jersey ends. There's a lot of one-on-one on the offense end, maybe because we don't trust each other. And then Kris Letang Womens Jersey on the defensive end, it's the same thing. Guys are put on islands and there's no trust. I mean, if you don't trust something ... I don't know. I think it has a lot to do with trust on both ends."

Thomas is struggling as he continues to recover from a hip injury suffered 11 months ago. LeBron James is healthy, but his effort level has waned over the past several weeks, http://www.authenticseahawkssale.com/nick-vannett-jersey-c-1_14.html perhaps hitting rock bottom Saturday.

James failed to get back on defense within the first minute of the game, foreshadowing a night in which he gave significantly less than his normal effort on both ends. He scored just 11 points Martavis Bryant Womens Jersey on 3-of-10 shooting, though he had nine rebounds and nine http://www.crtside.com/tanner-glass-jersey-c-1_23.html assists.

Cleveland has lost its past eight nationally televised games this season, losing them by an average of 18 points per game, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
