Quotes From The Q: Cavaliers Looked Tired Says Byron Scott

Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott credits New Jersey for doing what it takes to win, but knows his team didn’t give premium effort in the second half in their 95-87 loss to the Nets Wednesday night:

I thought for the first time that we were the tired team tonight in the fourth quarter. Losing Mo hurt, but I thought they (Nets) just outworked us. You have to give them a lot of credit…anytime you give up 15 offensive rebounds or send a team to the free throw line 35 times, it’s going to be tough to win. Having a young team, I think we’re going to learn from back-to-back nights of having to face the same team. Again, this is a learning process for us. It’s the eighth game of the season, so we have a long way to go.
