Despite his team losing 12 of its last 18 games — including a dispiriting 120-88 loss to visiting Houston on Saturday night — Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue’s job is safe, league sources told ESPN.

“We are not firing our head coach,” one Cavaliers official told ESPN late Saturday night.

The Cavaliers are planning to continue pursuing deals to improve the floundering team between now and Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, league sources said.

The Cavaliers, including LeBron James, were listless in the loss to the Rockets on national television Saturday night. Cleveland has had a series of blowout losses to drop to 30-21 — a half-game ahead of Washington in third place in the Eastern Conference and only 1.5 games ahead of Indiana.
