Cavs’ Tyronn Lue: Isaiah Thomas’ critique of adjustments ‘not true’

CLEVELAND — Coach Tyronn Lue was succinct and direct in his rebuttal to point guard Isaiah Thomas’ critique that the Cleveland Cavaliers are suffering this season because of their failure to execute in-game adjustments effectively.

“That’s not true,” Lue said before Cleveland’s 140-138 overtime win against the? Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.

When a reporter repeated that it was Thomas’ words he was quoting, not his own, Lue doubled down.
