Cleveland Cavaliers respond to J.B. Bickerstaff’s fiery, curse-filled halftime speech in win over Orlando

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff was miffed. More so than usual. 

Only this time it wasn’t at the officiating crew,  

who tends to get an earful from the fiery Bickerstaff on a nightly basis. 

Bickerstaff’s target: His team, following a halfhearted first-half effort.

“I can’t repeat it,” Bickerstaff said when asked about what he said to the guys at halftime.  

“My mom will wash my mouth out with soap.” 

That was Bickerstaff’s punishment as a child for swearing. 

So, just how many curse words did he use in that passionate rant? 

“A lot. I couldn’t tell you how many,” Evan Mobley said following the 103-92 win. “He kinda lit us up.”
