James: I am the wrong man to ask about Cava­liers poor form

Iran Daily - - Sports -

Le­bron James in­sisted he isn’t the right per­son to ask about any con­cern in the Cleve­land Cava­liers camp af­ter a shock de­feat to the New York Knicks.

The Cava­liers suf­fered a blowout 11495 loss to the Knicks on Sun­day to take them to 3-4 for the sea­son with their four de­feats com­ing in their last five games, the Ex­press re­ported.

It was also the Knicks’ first win over the Cava­liers af­ter a 10-game win­less run with Kristaps Porzingis reg­is­ter­ing a dou­ble-dou­ble with 32 points and 12 re­bounds.

In con­trast, James had just 16 points and only Kyle Korver for the Cava­liers shot over 50 per­cent from the field.

The Cava­liers had a small lead in the first quar­ter but in truth they were never close to chal­leng­ing the Knicks for the win.

It is only the sec­ond time a team with James in has been un­der .500 af­ter the open­ing seven games to the sea­son with the only other time com­ing in his rookie sea­son at the Cava­liers.

But the four-time MVP in­sisted he is not wor­ried in the slight­est as there is still plenty of time left in the sea­son.

“It was re­ally bad. We were pretty bad de­fen­sively,” James said.

“What month is this? Oc­to­ber? I’m not about to go crazy over it right now.

“It’s too long of a sea­son and I’ve been a part of this way too many times.

“So I’m the wrong guy to ask. I’m too pos­i­tive right now.”

JASON MILLER/GETTY IM­AGES Le­bron James (R) is closely watched by Tim Har­d­away Jr. in Cava­liers’ de­feat against Knicks in Cleve­land’s Quicken Loans Arena on Oc­to­ber 29, 2017.
