Byron Scott Frustrated by Lack of Development
The Cavs (5-23) have looked lethargic. They’ve looked a little confused. They’ve looked like they are a long way from understanding how to win at this level.
Even coach Byron Scott, a major player (and supporter) in the Cavs’ strategy of gradual improvement, is wearing a look of concern. And with good reason.
“I’m not running out of ideas yet — but I’m getting close,” Scott said. “As patient as I am, the one thing I am getting more than ever is frustrated.”
Scott is frustrated that the Cavs never really seem to pick up the intensity during games any more. They just kind of stay the same while their opponents get better.
“I know we’re doing all the right things,” Scott said. “It’s just a matter of our guys … they got to bring it every single night. Simple as that.”
Scott has been over this before. Yet the Cavs continue to play uninspired basketball. Not for entire games, mind you, but for much too long each night.
