The Cleveland Cavaliers were supposed to be a championship contender, yet they have been one of the worst teams in the league over the last few weeks. The Cavs just can't bounce back and get on a win streak, and that is something that causes a lot of frustration for the players. At the moment, Cleveland is 27-18 and in the third spot in the East, but 6.5 games behind the first-seeded Boston Celtics.

Last night, the Cavaliers had a horrible game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Despite having a home-court advantage, the Cavaliers allowed the Thunder to score 148 points in regulation, which is the franchise record since the team moved to Oklahoma City.

This happened just a week after the Cavs allowed the Toronto Raptors to score 133 points against them.

After last night's loss, LeBron James was clearly disappointed. The small forward even said that the Cavaliers shouldn't be thinking about the playoffs.

LeBron's statement

LeBron James needed 25 points to reach 30,000 career points, but he failed to do it. The superstar scored 18 points on 8-for-16 shooting against the Thunder. After the game, James was upset with the team performance and he talked about the playoffs.

"Playoffs? We can't even start thinking about that, not the way we're playing right now," LeBron said. "We could easily get bounced early in the playoffs if they started next weekend.

Haven't even begun thinking about the postseason." The Cavaliers have won only three games since Christmas, which is very disappointing.

James talked about the poor effort the Cavaliers had on defense, allowing 148 points in only four quarters. However, the forward admitted that defense is not the only problem the Cavs are dealing with as there are more issues.

Tyronn Lue to be fired?

Tyronn Lue hasn't been doing much to improve the team and it seems that he refuses to change lineups and do something different. Some players have complained about his rotations and lineups, and it's obvious that the head coach is on the hot seat. The Cavaliers are desperate for a big change, so it won't be surprising if they decide to let him go.

LeBron James doesn't like the idea of firing Lue and he hopes that the coach will stay with the team. However, he made it clear that he doesn't know what's going to happen with the Cavaliers. J.R. Smith also supported Lue and his coaching staff, saying that it's not their fault that players are not executing offensively and defensively.
