#Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a 4-6 start, which is very surprising and shocking considering they are supposed to be one of the best teams in the entire NBA. They keep losing games, no matter who they play against, and they just can't get on a much-needed win streak. In their last game, the Cavaliers lost to the Atlanta Hawks, who had a 1-8 record before the game.

LeBron James wasn't happy [VIDEO] with the Cavaliers' effort and #Dwyane Wade was disappointed with the starters. Yes, you read that right. Wade called out the starting unit, and even though he is probably right, his comments might ruin the team chemistry. In his defense, the shooting guard played his best game in Cleveland, but it wasn't enough to beat the Hawks who escaped with a close victory.

Wade is not happy with starters

Dwyane Wade, who started this season in the starting lineup, was disappointed with the Cavaliers' starters against the Hawks. #LeBron James had 26 points and 13 rebounds, but no other starter had a decent performance. Kevin Love [VIDEO], Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, and J.R. Smith shot 9-for-29 combined, which was far from good.

On the other side, the Atlanta Hawks had all five of their starters in double figures, with Dennis Schroder leading the way with 28 points on 9-for-13 shooting.

"I want one time for the first unit to get on the second unit because we blew a lead. I’m waiting for that day to happen," said Wade after the loss. All Wade wants is for the starting unit to get a lead so the reserves can hold it, but that still hasn't happened. It is not a secret that the Cavaliers are struggling and still trying to figure out the best starting lineup, but they should definitely give more effort.

Cleveland is now two games under .500 and will play next game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Falling to a 4-7 record is not an option, so the Cavaliers will have to give their maximum effort to beat amazing Giannis Antetokounmpo and his team.

Dwyane Wade in Cleveland

Wade had his best performance as a Cavalier last night as he scored 25 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, and dished out 6 assists. He hasn't been dealing with many injuries this season and has only missed one game so far.

Dwyane Wade's best years are far behind him, but no one expected him to average only 9.0 points per game with the Cavaliers. The shooting guard is averaging career-low numbers in scoring, but his 4.1 assists per game are very good considering he plays 22.2 minutes on average.
