J.R. Smith Very Worried About State of Cavaliers

Basketball Insiders

After a 113-99 loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday, Cleveland Cavalier guard J.R. Smith said his level of concern is “extremely high” regarding the state of his team, which has suddenly lost three of its last four games.

“We can’t play basketball like this going down the stretch,” Smith said of the Cavs, whose lead over the Toronto Raptors for the top seed in the Eastern Conference now sits at just 1½ games. “There’s 24, 25 games left in the year and you talk about contending, being a championship contender and get blown out by a team. … After losing a game to the No. 2 team in the East then you come out and get thrashed and make it look good at the end.

“We can’t do that. If we’re serious about who we’re supposed to be, then we can’t do this.”
