Report: Cavaliers confront each other during players-only meeting
After a 29-point loss to the Timberwolves on Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a players-only meeting.
The meeting got contentious and several players confronted each other, according to ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst.
The meeting didn’t resolve the Cavs’ problems on the court, as they lost to the Bobcats, 86-80, on Friday after giving up a 12-point second-half lead. It was their third straight loss and fifth in sixth games since starting the year 2-2.
The report comes on the heels of a dustup between point guard Kyrie Irving and coach Mike Brown in a loss to Chicago on Monday, when the two got into a heated exchange after Brown pulled Irving from the game.
Irving is shooting 38 percent from the field this season, and was only 5-for-16 against the Bobcats. Still, he leads the team with 19.3 points and 7.2 assists per game.
Cleveland plays in Washington on Saturday night.
