Publish date:

The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired head coach David Blatt, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Cleveland currently sits atop the Eastern Conference standings with a 30–11 record, having won eight of their last ten games. After a tough 132–98 loss to the Warriors on Monday, they have bounced back to win their last two games. 

Blatt was the Cavs coach during last year's playoff run, in which they lost the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, two games to four. Blatt went 83–40 as Cleveland's head coach, good for a .675 winning percentage.
