After the Cavaliers' loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, LeBron James had less-than-encouraging words about the team's chance at making the playoffs this year.

The Cavs allowed a season worst on Saturday, falling 148-124 and tying a franchise record for most points allowed in regulation. This was their ninth loss in the last 12 games.

"Playoffs? We can't even start thinking about that, not the way we're playing right now," James told ESPN's Dave McMenamin. "We could easily get bounced early in the playoffs if they started next weekend. Haven't even began thinking about the postseason."
