Tyronn Lue is 78-45 in one and a half years in Cleveland.What's the story?
To complete the history lesson, the Cavs learned from last year's film session and beat the Raptors in Toronto on December 5. The Cavs will get an opportunity to prove that they are committed to improving on the defensive end on Thursday night when they face off against one of the top offensive teams in the National Basketball Association in the Toronto Raptors. Lue said Rose, who previously told reporters there was "a chance" he'd play on the Cavs' current five-game road trip, will not play against either Toronto or IN to end the trip. The players have a combined 10 championships between them. "From top to bottom, just play harder. we're anxious about other things other than playing hard. We've just got to play harder".
Lue's objective of the film session was to hope his players would see it as a slap in the face to get their attention as they attempt to climb the standings in the Eastern Conference. "[Lue] doesn't even have to say anything". But we've just got to have better energy. We've got to be the aggressor at both ends of the floor, and when we do that we're a tough team to beat, no matter who we're playing. I think it was smart of Lue to try to give his players a "slap in the face" to see if they respond. When we don't and we let teams do what they want offensively, it's tough, especially when you're not hitting on the offensive end.
