Cavaliers defend rookie coach John Beilein amid skid

CLEVELAND (AP) Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson battled Orlando's big men and then defended his rookie coach.

At least some of the Cavaliers have John Beilein's back.

Following a 93-87 loss to the Magic - Cleveland's 11th loss in 12 games - Thompson said he was disappointed to learn that some of his teammates had anonymously criticized Beilein, the former Michigan coach hired by the Cavs to develop their young roster during a massive rebuild.
