The Cavaliers have nothing to be happy about right now, being that they got destroyed in the first half of tonight's battle with the Toronto Raptors. And it's not stopping.
The Cavs were down down 65-40 in Toronto at the half, but before that during a timeout, LeBron James was seen voicing his frustration with his teammates and even the coaches.
It's not good.
Most would agree that LeBron is the best player on the planet, and he's earned the right to voice his opinion on certain issues. With his team lacking on the defensive end of the court, it's no surprise to see James this heated, considering he's one of the best defensive players in the league.
But this isn't the first time that LeBron's team has trailed by 20 or more points at halftime. The last time it happened was, actually, last Monday against the Timberwolves.

That's one accolade that LeBron certainly does not want to have. The Timberwolves and Raptors are both good teams, and these are the type of games you can't afford to get lazy on defense.
Being that their defense has gotten smoked in consecutive games, the Cavs better find a way to fix their issues fast.
