Cleveland Cavaliers: Cavs Officially Set NBA Record With 25th Straight Loss
Cleveland Cavaliers Stand Alone in NBA Record Books
Technically, the Cleveland Cavaliers did indeed set a new NBA record when they lost their 24th straight game against the Portland Trail Blazer's on Saturday night.
But in terms of all-time futility, the Cavs weren't quite out of the woods (or is it "in the woods?"). After all, the 1982-1983 Cavaliers lost 24 straight over two seasons, so these Cavs still needed one more loss to set the record for consecutive losses over any length of time.
Well, they did just that on Monday night, as they went down on the road against the Dallas Mavericks by the final off 99-96.
Credit where credit's due, the Cavs at least made it a close call. As a matter of fact, they had a chance to tie it with a three-pointer in the closing seconds, but they decided to keep passing the ball instead. Time ran out, and no shot had been fired at all.
Isn't that just perfect?
Meanwhile, LeBron James and the Miami Heat have won six in a row, and currently hold the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.
Bringing that up accomplishes nothing, of course. But it is relevant nonetheless.
Just out of curiosity, what is the mark for consecutive losses for any basketball team? It has to belong to the Washington Generals, right?
Oh well. Maybe our list of the Worst Teams in Sports History will cheer up the Cleveland faithful.
Or it might not. Either way.
