Scott told Sam Amico of FoxSportsOhio:
"He struggled offensively big-time," Cavs coach Byron Scott said of Waiters. "I took him out in the second half because I drew up a play, and he messed it up. To me that was a lack of focus so I figured he didn't need to play the rest of the game."
In his second game with the Cavaliers, Waiters had two points, three assists and four turnovers on 1-of-7 shooting from the field in 14 minutes. Waiters, who has come off the bench in both of the team's pre-season games, was selected fourth overall by the Cavaliers in the 2012 NBA Draft.
