When you are mired in a bad losing skid, such as what the Cleveland Cavaliers are now facing, tensions tend to run high.
Fingers get pointed. And apparently, the toughness and integrity of All-Star players get challenged by teammates.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday evening that at the core of an emotional Cavs team meeting was the legitimacy of Kevin Love leaving the OKC loss on Saturday ill and missing Sunday’s practice.
After losing to the Thunder, 148-124, on Saturday, the Cavs have dropped 6 of their last 8 games and are sinking in the Eastern Conference standings. They own a 27-18 record and are one game ahead of Miami for third place in the East, six games in back of front-running Boston.
The Cavaliers will resume action on Tuesday when they face the Spurs in San Antonio.
