Watch: 10 moments that sum up Cavs' terrible loss to Rockets
The Cleveland Cavaliers need fixing fast.
Cleveland was demoralized on its home court Saturday, surrendering 120 points to the visiting Houston Rockets in a 32-point blowout loss - on national TV, nonetheless.
After scoring the first basket, the Rockets never relinquished the lead, and Cleveland's night quickly went from bad to worse to downright miserable.
Here are 10 moments that summed up the Cavaliers' disastrous showing:
Wade loses superpowers
Dwyane Wade was once one of the most fearsome slashers in the NBA. Now, not so much.
What's help defense?
Defending the pick-and-roll is too complicated
Half-court heaves are too easy
Cleveland really let Harden dribble it at half court for five seconds before throwing the easiest alley-oop pass of his life.
What's help defense? The sequel
J.R. gets tossed aside
Look, Nene Hilario isn't an ideal matchup for Smith, but that doesn't excuse his half-hearted defense - or the rest of the Cavaliers' failure to help him out.
Booed off home court
Cleveland heads into the half down 26, LeBron James angrily hurls an innocent basketball, and the boos are unleashed at Quicken Loans Arena.
No one can stop ... Ryan Anderson?
Ryan Anderson is absolutely a threat from outside, but he absolutely shouldn't be doing this to your interior defense.
Chris Paul runs wild
Booed at home ... again
Being booed at home is one thing, but twice in the same game? Yikes. It was that bad.
