Cleveland Cavaliers can’t quiet the noise, lose to Orlando Magic for third time this season, 93-87
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- In the face of increased scrutiny from his own players, a few of whom anonymously questioned his coaching style earlier in the day, John Beilein focused on the task at hand: Trying to lead his undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers to a much-needed win against the streaking Orlando Magic.
He couldn’t. The Cavs lost to the Magic 93-87. It’s Cleveland’s fifth straight loss and 11th in the last 12.
The Cavs took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter, playing the best they have in weeks, but then faded late, just as they’ve done so many other times in tight games this season. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
Tristan Thompson, Cavaliers defend John Beilein after players anonymously question coaching methods: ‘I love coach Beilein’

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- One by one, members of the Cleveland Cavaliers were asked about a midday report in which teammates questioned first-year head coach John Beilein’s methods, comparing his operation to college and stating that players had already drowned out his voice just 20 games into the season.
“I don’t really see the comparison of college,” John Henson said before praising Beilein for reminding him of his old Hall-of-Fame coach at North Carolina Roy Williams. “This is an NBA team, it’s run like an NBA team. What he’s doing, I don’t think anybody’s complaining. I think it’s kind of overshot, you know what I mean. They just kind of ran with it media wise. I think he’s doing fine, got a great staff. You saw tonight, we played hard, played well within our schemes, just didn’t come (out) on top.”
As players funneled out, heading for the team charter, en route to Philadelphia for the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday night, one player remained, waiting to give his take on the latest loss -- and ready to discuss a report that engulfed the Cleveland locker room. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
Cavs big man Larry Nance Jr. makes an impact rebounding and on defense in loss against Magic
Author: Cameron Fields
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cavaliers big man Larry Nance Jr. made his fourth start of the season Friday night, and while he tied a season-low with four points, he still found ways to be impactful.
With Kevin Love out sick, Nance helped make an imprint against Orlando. He grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds and tallied one block in the Cavs’ 93-87 loss to the Magic.
An improved shooter, Nance had made a 3-pointer in each of the past seven games. That streak stopped against the Magic, as Nance shot 0-of-3 from deep. He also shot a season-low 20% from the field. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
