On Sunday, January 11, concerns for the revamped Cleveland Cavaliers were at an all-time high.
The team had just lost its fifth straight game, and eight of their last nine. The concept of defense was foreign at best. Opponents were simply walking all over Cleveland. Rumors of discontent within the locker room began surfacing everywhere. First-year coach David Blatt was suddenly on the hot seat.
To summarize: the team Cleveland fans were promised was nowhere to be found and, as a result, panic was running wild.
