Cavs offense not getting it done

Cleveland has dropped its last two games after a 5-1 start to the Tyronn Lue era. The Cavs' offense hasn't been as efficient in the back-to-back losses.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Love on his health status for Saturday's game vs. NOP: "I wasn't really concerned. It was just, I was looking at the basket, going up for the rebound and I think it was (Marcus) Smart hit me on the box out and I went right to the floor. Probably for about 10 minutes, it was dead leg. I don't know what it will feel like tomorrow but I'm optimistic that it's just a thigh bruise -- nothing else."

Lots of blame to go around to explain the Cavs losing that one: J.R Smith for fouling Evan Turner; the refs for calling that questionable call on Smith; Ty Lue for subbing Timofey Mozgov in place of Tristan Thompson to rebound on the Turner FT; Mozgov failing to grab the board when Turner missed; Cavs going 21-for-35 from the FT line.
