Watching the Cavs stink so far is enjoyable

Last night Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz (yes the same Utah Jazz who finished with an identical 25-57 record as the Celtics last year) hit this buzzer-beater to knock off Cleveland:

Although in reality it never should have come to that, because LeBron was awarded a ridiculous three free throws to tie the game on the play before.

The Cavs are 1-3.  They could easily be 0-4.  Last night they had only 6 assists as a team (something no NBA club had done in a single game in over two years); by contrast Rajon Rondo had 15 all by himself.  The other day LeBron went scoreless in the second half, which has only happened four times in his career (pictured--and what does it say about him that 50% of those occasions came in playoff games?).

You can read a lot more about this in my weekly feature for HoopsHabit, Stat Central: What's Wrong With LeBron James And The Cavs?
