The shorthanded Toronto Raptors visibly frustrated LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers with a demoralizing defeat, and Kyrie Irving liked it.

As in, he liked this video of LeBron yelling at his teammates and coaches in a huddle as the Raptors, playing without All-Stars Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, crushed Cleveland 133-99.

Here’s a screenshot of the Boston Celtics point guard‘s liking the video on Instagram.

The defeat comes on the heels of one of the worst performances of LeBron’s career, a 127-99 beatdown at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s the first time he’s ever had consecutive losses of more than 25 points.

The Raptors were led by sophomore point guard Fred VanVleet, who dropped 22 points in the absence of Lowry, though Delon Wright got the start at point.

The Cavs are second-last in the league in defensive rating, surrendering 109.5 points per 100 possessions, ahead of only the lowly Sacramento Kings.

When asked about the team’s defensive woes after the shellacking at the hands of one of two teams ahead of the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference, LeBron deflected by questioning the reporter’s defense.
