08:11 AM ET 04.05 | The Cavs woke up Friday with the Celtics on the schedule and a 10-game skid on their heels -- and a harsh spotlight is pointed in one direction. As questions about his job security rise, Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said he can't evaluate the job he has done yet because he doesn't have all the pieces. He refuses to publicly defend himself, so Tristan Thompson chose Thursday to do it for him. "All the rumors about Coach Scott, hot seat and all that crap, that's bogus," Thompson said. "It's up to us to go out and compete and play hard because we're the ones out there. ... It's up to us to go out there and play." Unfortunately, the Cavs haven't done a very good job of playing lately.

Scott's job is safe. He doesnt even have a full roster right now.. heck not even a superstar or top scorer is playing right now. Finish tanking the season, and get 1 more lottery pick. The rebuild will be complete. Irving and Waiters will be back, trade or keep Andy, and go after a max free agent or 2. I expect the Cavs to be in the playoffs next year.
