The Cleveland Cavaliers scored just six points off the bench in a 114-101 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

Conrad Kaczmarek of Fear the Sword says he felt good about the Cavaliers bringing in Jon Leuer and C.J. Miles in the off-season and believed that Samardo Samuels could be better but after eight games, he thinks the bench isn't prepared to contribute in a meaningful way.

Leuer and Donald Sloan combined for six points off the bench on Tuesday. Leuer is averaging 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds on 33.3 percent shooting from the field in a little over 17 minutes off the bench for the Cavaliers. Miles did not play against Brooklyn on Tuesday and is averaging 4.5 points and 2.0 rebounds on 23.4 percent shooting from the field.

The Cavaliers have lost four games in a row to fall to 2-6 on the season. The loss on Tuesday concluded a six-game road trip on which they went 1-5.
