VIDEO: David Blatt takes shot at Cavs defense before Turkish All-Star Game

CLEVELAND– After the Cavaliers suffered arguably their most embarrassing loss of the season yesterday to the Oklahoma City Thunder, their former coach had something to say about it.

The Cavs gave up a franchise-tying worst 148 points, and David Blatt, who now is at the helm of Darussafaka Spor Kulubu, noticed the results all the way in Turkey before their All-Star Game.

“I hope we don’t give up as many points as the Cavaliers gave up last night,” he said.

In his first year as head coach, Blatt led the Cavs to the 2015 NBA Finals where they fell to the Golden State Warriors. During the 2016-17 season, Cleveland held a 30-11 record through January before the team fired Blatt and he was replaced by Tyronn Lue.

But as Joe Vardon of points out, there is some irony to Blatt’s trolling:
