Vardon's story outlines other signs of dysfunction in the Cavs' locker room, including the fact that interim coach Larry Drew's uncertain contract situation is confusing the team.

Drew, who was earning about $1 million, will receive a pay raise this season.

CLEVELAND Larry Drew's awkward impasse with the Cleveland Cavaliers is over.

Cleveland now has the league's worst record at 1-8 and their dysfunction runs much deeper than their poor play on the court. Drew promised to remain professional and do his job during the talks, and the 60-year-old kept his word. The team said his timeline to return to basketball activity will be updated in approximately six weeks. "Most of the time you don't win those games".

After an Aaron Gordon jumper cut the lead to three with just under 24 seconds to play (meaning Orlando had to foul), a Cedi Osman pass got stolen by D.J. Augustin, who got fouled and made both free throws to cut the Cleveland lead to one with 18.7 seconds to play.

The warship is now in danger of sinking, while the tanker, named the Sola TS , is slightly damaged and did not spill oil. The shipping site Sysla reported that the tanker had been loaded with crude oil and was on its way to the UK.

The Cavs have gone 1-2 under Drew, who didn't want to proceed this season without assurances from the organization. Tristan Thompson added 19 points and 16 rebounds. "We didn't handle it and that is why we lost the game".

The seventh-year man from France is already off to a strong start this year, posting double-figures in eight games this year - including 31-point performance against Philadelphia back on October 20.

The Cavaliers bench has been good all season and that was the case again on Saturday night on Tobacco Road - combining to tally 56 points in the loss.
