In his conversation with Jenna Wolfe and Cris Carter, Nick Wright reacts to LeBron's Cavs blowing a 21-point lead to the league-worst Orlando Magic, outlining how their abysmal, offensive performance is a 'symptom of a much larger disease.'

- They're a terrible basketball team--

- OK.

- --right now, is the quickest explanation. What happened last night was, the mirage wasn't what happened in the final three quarters. The mirage was what happened in the first quarter. The Cavs got up 20-- I want to make sure America knows who they lost to last night. The Cavs blew a 21-point lead to the worst team in the league, who did not have its best player. OK?

So Orlando at full strength is the worst basketball team in the NBA. They were without Aaron Gordon, maybe the league's most improved player, and a guy who I believe is their best player. And they had-- what did this turn into, a 39-point turnaround, from 21 down to winning by 18 points?

- Mm-hm.

- The fourth quarter in a season-- CC said yesterday, you can call it rock bottom, but don't build a house on it. Well, you found a new rock bottom yesterday.

So, specifically about yesterday's game, what happened in the first quarter? JR was hitting his shots. Isaiah hit some shots. In the next three-- the rest of the game, after the first quarter, JR, Isaiah, Derrick Rose, Channing Crowder-- how about one of 22 from the field for two points? Like, so, that's specifically why they lost yesterday's game, but that is a symptom of a much larger disease that has afflicted this team since Christmas, which is why, since Christmas, they have been one of the two worst teams in the NBA.
