The Cavaliers have lost 13 in a row. They have lost 19 in a row on the road. They must have left their talent in Cleveland—well, if they had talent to leave there. The closest they have come was a one point loss against the Timberwolves. The biggest loss was the record game against the Lakers that we all remember.
So how long will this losing streak continue? Lets look at their upcoming schedule and see what games are winnable.
January 19 vs. Suns
The Suns have struggled this season. But they are still one of the best offensive teams in the league. The Cavaliers don't have enough weapons on offense.
Prediction: Losing streak goes to 14.
January 21 vs. Bucks
This game is winnable. And the last time these teams met, the Cavaliers won. But the Bucks know they can not lose this game.
Prediction: Bucks win in a close one, losing streak goes to 15.
January 22 @ Bulls
If the Cavaliers win this one, I will be shocked.
Prediction: Bulls in a blow out. Losing streak reaches 16, road losing streak reaches 20.
January 24 @ Nets
This is the most winnable out of the four so far. The Nets are the second worst team in the league, behind the Cavaliers. No surprise. Believe it or not, the Cavaliers will win this game.
Prediction: Both losing streaks end.
In case the Nets beat the Cavs, here are the games after the Nets game:
Jan. 25 @ Celtics, prediction: loss
Jan. 28 vs. Nuggets, prediction: loss
Jan. 30 @ Magic, prediction: loss
Jan. 31 @ Heat, prediction: loss
Feb. 2 vs. Pacers, prediction: loss
