Fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers should take comfort in the fact that players on the team aren’t content with the team’s record right now.
Speaking to Spencer Davies and the press, Max Strus said that the team has been “average” so far this year.
He admitted that the Cavaliers have been “inconsistent with our play” but promised that they would figure it out in the weeks ahead.

The team currently has an 11-9 record and has earned the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.
They have also scored some strong wins throughout the season, including ones against the Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers, and New York Knicks.
Still, they are not looking like a team that could storm far into the playoffs.
Strus has been a strong asset to the Cavaliers during his first season with the team, averaging 14.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4 assists.
He has brought a boost of energy and efficiency to the lineup, especially the offense.
Strus knows that the team will have to play much better than this if they wish to have a strong rest of the season and also have a big presence in the playoffs.
Fans are hoping that the team is just getting warmed up and will deliver on Strus’ promise of more consistency in the future.
The Eastern Conference is tougher than it has been in years and multiple teams will be vying for a spot in the postseason.
Strus is encouraged by what he sees in team practices and really does believe in his squad.
Now it is time for him and the rest of the Cavaliers to give the fans something to cheer about.
