A day earlier, he had been asked to address his job status, and while he declined to defend his body of work, a quick glance at his win-loss record with the Cavs  made it easy to understand why some might say Scott does not deserve a fourth year in Cleveland. The Cavs are 62-160 under Scott, finishing no better than 13th in the Eastern Conference during his tenure.

Cavs late season woes could have big offseason impact

I’ll be honest.

Cavs' lack of effort paints ugly big picture

CLEVELAND -- With time running out on another lost season and another embarrassing defeat behind them, the Cavaliers have to ask themselves some serious questions.
