The Cleveland Cavaliers [VIDEO] suffered a frustrating loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday night (Oct. 29), falling 114-95. The Cavaliers earned their third straight loss in this game against one of the worst teams in the #NBA this season. Coming into Sunday, the Knicks had only won one game in the first two weeks.

The New York Knicks are supposed to be Eastern Conference bottom-feeders; same with Orlando Magic and the Brooklyn Nets. But these are the teams who have defeated the #Cleveland Cavaliers, one of the best teams in NBA, over the last eight days. Coach Tyronn Lue said in a report by the Associated Press “Tonight’s loss and the last couple are unacceptable, and the only way we’re going to be able to get out of it is to put the work in – as players, as coaches.

LeBron James is not worried about their poor performance

The four-time MVP, LeBron James [VIDEO], insists he is not worried in the slightest as there is still plenty of time left in the season. He said that he is not the right person to ask about the Cavaliers poor performance because he is too positive. “It was really bad. We were pretty bad defensively,” James said.

After their loss to the Knicks, LeBron James became the center of the fans frustrations and anger. Social media was not kind to the Cleveland Cavaliers after losing to the lowly New York Knicks.
