CLEVELAND -- With time running out on another lost season and another embarrassing defeat behind them, the Cavaliers have to ask themselves some serious questions.
Namely, how badly do they want to keep this thing together?
How long do they want to play for coach Byron Scott?
How much suffering are they willing to endure themselves?
And how little do they care about the fans, the people who pay their hefty salaries to give them an opportunity to do what they love?
Following their shameful effort in Wednesdays 113-95 loss to the visiting Brooklyn Nets, these questions are not unfair. The only reason the Cavs didnt lose by 50 is because the Nets showed some mercy and quit playing, too.
The Cavs, on the other hand, never really started.

As part of an asinine “recovery plan,” superior Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will not compete in consecutive games for the rest of the 2012-2013 campaign. The 21-year-old Irving, averaging 23.2 points, 5.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds over 50 contests, has been plagued with a bummed knee and sprained left shoulder for the better part of a month. Irving, a 6-foot-3...
The Cavaliers have lost 10 straight games and Byron Scott's future has come into question because of a 62-160 record over three seasons.

During the Cleveland Cavaliers’ ongoing season-high eight-game losing streak, much of the media...
Byron Scott was handed a mess three years ago by the Cavaliers. He hasn't been able to clean it up.
With his third season as Cleveland's coach draining to its final days, Scott's future with the club is under question. The Cavs lost their 10th straight game on Wednesday night, an embarrassing 113-95 loss to the New Jersey Nets, who were missing two starters but still...
The locker room had the aura of a funeral home. Suited men stood at the entry way, greeting—watching. Silence echoed off of the maple, those impacted by the loss slowly shuffled about with their heads hanging and faces oozing disappointment. Some sat, some leaned; others came and went without saying a word. Laid to rest was the last 48 minutes of basketball, the Cleveland Cavaliers...
BOSTON — The vultures are circling Byron Scott.
The third-year coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers was at TD Garden on Friday, preparing to lead his injury-ravaged, last-place team against the Celtics. 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...
