The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired head coach David Blatt, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Update (4:02 p.m.): Associate head coach Tyronn Lue will take Blatt’s spot:


The Cavaliers are first in the East with a 30-11 record, and have won eight of their last 10 games, but were embarrassed in Cleveland by the Warriors in a 132-98 blowout on Monday. Leading the conference apparently wasn’t enough to keep Blatt employed.
