CLEVELAND -- Point guard Isaiah Thomas went scoreless in the second half of Tuesday's loss at Orlando, missing all six of his field goal attempts, four of them from long range. But it didn't stop Thomas from taking a shot at the coaching staff afterward.

In response to a question about him losing his way in the flow of the offense late in the game, Thomas let loose.

"We got to adjust throughout the game," he said. "They made adjustments and it worked and we just kept getting hit with the same thing and we made no adjustments.

"And that's been one of our biggest problems all year, is adjusting. Teams are not just going to allow us to continue to score and continue to do things at a high level. They're going to make adjustments and we have to do the same thing, too, and we're not that good at that right now."

When told of Thomas' comments about the lack of adjustments before Wednesday night's home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Lue said, "That's not true."

That wasn't the only controversial statement from Thomas, who continued to rip the Cavs' lack of chemistry.


"It's like right now, when we hit adversity, we go our separate ways," Thomas said.
