Cavs Coach Ty Lue Making Changes to the Starting Lineup – Will It Help?

It was a move that everyone who has been watching the Cavs saw coming, and today finally coach Ty Lue announced a couple lineup changes that he and the rest of Cavs Nation is hoping will jump start the struggling team.

The changes are as follows:

* Tristan Thompson to start at center
* Kevin Love to start at power forward
* Jae Crowder to the bench

It will be interesting to see what, if anything, this does to the team as they get ready to get back on the court Friday at home against the Indiana Pacers.

Lue had said Wednesday after the team lost Tuesday night to the San Antonio Spurs that changes to the lineup were coming, and why not, the team has lost 10 of 13 games and the struggle just about every game can’t be denied.

The team even struggled in a recent home win over the Orlando Magic, holding a 24-point lead at one point, only to escape with a one-point win.

Right now the Cavs trail the second-place Raptors by 4.5 games and sit six games behind the Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
