In his conversation with Cris Carter and Jenna Wolfe, Nick Wright reacts to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers losing to Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers. What does The King need to right the ship?

- When he says, I've even played without an All-Star, he's referencing, we need K Love back. Like, they absolutely need Kevin Love back. And so I think they-- I think they are going to be, once Kevin Love gets back, they will look drastically different. I thought Sarah Kustok, who was on with us yesterday, made a really good point about Kevin Love's ability to help the back court play because he will draw more people away from the basket, won't be as much clogging the paint the way Tristan or Larry Nance do.

But when you're playing Ante Zizic and John Holland, 20 combined minutes, guys that would not necessarily be the best player on a lot of G League teams across the league, you're going to struggle. And when you're playing the hottest team in the league, you're going to struggle.

What was frustrating for me is, man, LeBron announced to everyone, we're here to win tonight, boys. I don't think the Cavs necessarily go into every game like, we definitely are here to win, they were last-- LeBron was last night. And if the back court can't produce on offense, can you try to hold CJ and Daim under 50. Is that enough? Can you hold them under 50, since you're only going to produce as a cumulative back court outside of Clarkson, what was it, 13 points combined? Like, can you do that?
