Cavs start fast, end slow and lose

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to struggle with trying to get road wins. Last night, LeBron James and the Cavs held a double digit lead through most of the first half. The halftime score was a comfortable 56-44 lead. The third quarter was a complete disaster as Indiana outscored Cleveland 25-9.

LeBron James lead the Cavs with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Drew Gooden chipped in 17 points and 12 boards. Gooden and James combined for over 50% of the offense. This team will not be successful with this type of distribution. The bench and roll players will need to contribute if this team wants to compete with the powers of the East. Coach Mike Brown needs to find a rotation that works, especially on the road.
