The Cleveland Cavaliers have a ton of problems that have been on display this season. Few, if any, have been more prominent than the team’s struggles to do anything on the defensive end of the floor. This has been a problem in Cleveland for a while now, but this year, the team has looked especially slow and disinterested defensively.
For Isaiah Thomas, who has lamented about the team’s defensive struggles already this season, it all comes down to a lack of trust and hard work. While Thomas isn’t exactly considered to be a stout defender, he still sees the issues that the team has, and believes they’re the kind of things that anyone can do, regardless of how good they are on that end of the floor.
After Cleveland got blown out by Houston on Saturday night, knocking the team to 0-8 in nationally televised games this season, Thomas went off on the Cavs’ defensive effort.
