Ball security continues to be an issue

The Sports Xchange

The Cavs are not always giving themselves a chance to win games.

That's because they are turning it over at an alarming rate. They had 22 turnovers on Tuesday in Miami, which ruined their upset bid.

"Some of them were bad decisions," Cavs coach Byron Scott said. "We just got to get better at taking care of the basketball. I think right now it's a matter of a young team that is still not extremely comfortable with one another, and not knowing where everyone should exactly be at all times.

"Some of the turnovers are because we're not on the right place on the floor. Those are things that we can definitely take care of. We need to be mindful of what we're doing; don't make the home run pass, just make the simple pass. Guys in front of you are wide open. You've got to make the simple passes to guys on the perimeter and hope they can make the shots."

They turned the ball over 19 times on Wednesday, but still prevailed over the New York Knicks, 91-81. They'll try to get things straightened out against New Jersey on Friday.

The Cavs are averaging 17.1 turnovers per game, last in the NBA. Guard Kyrie Irving is averaging a team-high 3.6 turnovers per game.
