The Philadelphia 76ers made the phrase "trust the process" relevant in the NBA. Now, it seems like that is also applicable to #LeBron James and the Cleveland #Cavaliers, who are having a rough start to the 2017-18 NBA season.

At the moment, the #Cleveland Cavaliers hold a record of 3-3. They are on a two-game losing streak after falling to the Brooklyn Nets and the New Orleans Pelicans. Despite the struggles the Cavaliers are experiencing, LeBron James remains upbeat and knows it is a long season. Following their loss to the Pelicans, James said he understands the process. The Cavaliers are trying to incorporate new players like Dwyane Wade into their system.

At the same time, they are making adjustments to their lineup with Derrick Rose [VIDEO] and Isaiah Thomas out with injuries.

James is confident that the Cavaliers will get better in the future. The four-time NBA MVP is staying patient with the process and is looking forward to the day when they are at "full-strength."

LBJ against Pelicans

In the defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans, LeBron James had a great outing even though he did not record his usual numbers. The "King" tallied 18 points, five rebounds, and eight assists in 31 minutes on the hardwood. James' scoring output was the second-best for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kevin Love top-scored for the Cavaliers. Love dropped 26 points, which came with 11 rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Sadly, aside from James and Love, only one more Cavaliers player scored in double-digits.

Dwyane Wade, who recently asked to be part of the second unit, contributed 15 points in a losing cause. Wade had four assists and two steals as well.

Cavaliers' homestand

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are heading back home at the Quicken Loans Arena after two games on the road. James and the Cavs are preparing for a two-game homestand against Eastern Conference squads that similar to them, changed their rosters drastically.

On October 29, James and the Cavaliers are hosting the New York Knicks, who just captured their first victory of the 2017-18 NBA season last Friday. The Knicks are relying on their new face of the franchise, rising star Kristaps Porzingis. The Cavaliers have a couple of days rest before returning to action on November 1 to take on the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers, like the Knicks, parted ways with their longtime franchise star and are undergoing the rebuilding phase.
