Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Philadelphia 76ers: Andrew Bynum wasn't impressed by Philly fans

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers dropped another road game. Mike Brown is getting frustrated and is looking for some answers.

This Cleveland Cavaliers team just cannot win on the road, apparently. On Friday night, the Cavs dropped their fourth straight road game of the season and fell to 2-4 overall. Cleveland jumped out to a big lead in the first quarter, but collapsed for the final three and lost to the Philadelphia 76ers by a final score of 94-79. Here's what the Cavs' coach and players had to say after Friday night's loss.

Mike Brown

The Cavs' defense looked good for the first three games of the season, but has really struggled in the two most recent losses. Obviously, Mike Brown is not pleased. It was easy to say that the team was buying in to his style of play after just a few games, but the two most recent performances have been anything but Mike Brown's style of basketball.

"We need some grittiness and some toughness to surface, especially on the road. Right now it's not happening, and I don't know if it's because we don't have the home crowd giving us a little extra energy or what it is. But some of the things I saw tonight, what I saw in Milwaukee is new to me. We haven't done that stuff, whether it was in the preseason or training camp or practices or any other game."

With Anthony Bennett sidelined with his right shoulder injury, Brown has some wiggle room with his rotation. He indicated that he will try giving some other guys more playing time and mixing up the rotation a bit to see if anybody can step up and provide the consistency that he's looking for.

"I need some consistency from somebody. Right now, there's not anybody on the roster that has given us consistent minutes. We've had guys look good for two or three minutes here, but then they disappear, and then they look good for another two or three minutes down the road, and then they disappear again. I'm going to start searching for somebody to be consistent for us because, right now, we're not getting it."

Kyrie Irving:

Irving hasn't been particularly good this season. He does continue to say all the right things, however. He knows that the team isn't performing like they need to and he understands that they need to be more consistent.

"I'm not trying to make any excuses for the team, but coming out, we string together a couple of quarters and then we just fall off, and we can't do that going forward, especially playing against good teams."

Andrew Bynum:

Bynum made his return to Philly and got booed pretty soundly. However, Bynum continues to be the greatest troll of Philly fans ever with this quote.

"I thought it was a little weak. Honestly, I thought it was going to be much worse."
