Struggling Cavaliers not planning to fire head coach Tyronn Lue

During this current losing skid, Cleveland has lost eight games in a row on national television, which is a source of deep frustration for James - a guy who's used to playing his best when the lights shine brightest.

They've also gone 6-11 in their past 17 games, which includes their Christmas Day loss.

"I'm lost for words, actually", James said via ESPN, referring to the Cavs' streak on national TV.

The Pistons won their third straight game since the trade and are 2-0 with Griffin in uniform as they pulled within a game of.500 with a 25-26 record on the season.

His win shares rating - a statistic that measures how many more games a team wins with a player on the court - is so bad that it is now in the negative. He was a hair away from a triple-double, as he scored 11 points, dished nine assists, and grabbed nine rebounds, adding two steals and only two turnovers. They let a almost $5 million trade exception expire last month, in part because it would cost the Cavs millions in salary and tax penalties to waive one of their current players in order to make room.James has a $35.6 million player's option on his contract next season.

Since LeBron is basically the coach of the team, why does Tyronn Lue still have a job?

Cleveland has lost 12 of 18 and LeBron James and his teammates have been beaten by at least 24 points in four games during the span.

Under Ryan Coogler's sturdy direction, the nuances and details of the " Black Panther " storyline are impeccable. Killmonger goes head-to-head with T'Challa in a way that makes it hard to pigeonhole him as a typical "villain".

"Don't look like it", Lue said. "With this, I think it's great to be able to avoid that and nearly right way get back and still stay in shape and do most things".

If the Cavs don't trade Thomas though - and they have until Thursday to do it - James will have to find a way to make it work with Thomas.

The 28-year-old Griffin, who spent all eight National Basketball Association seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers before being traded to the Pistons on Monday, missed his first five shots from beyond the arc before making one in the final minute. Isaiah Thomas said the blowouts aren't a product of toughness issues but trust issues within the locker room.

"That's not a question for me". And certainly I would go to him and 'Listen, this is why we're going to do that.' Just as I did with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. I bust my tail every day.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert sat in his usual baseline seat near his team's basket for much of the first half of this latest debacle. "I do my part".

"I'm not the GM and I don't make those calls so I can't control that", he said.

Down 26 at halftime, James and the Cavs walked off the floor hearing boos from Cleveland fans who have grown exhausted of their lack of defense, chemistry and commitment.
