Cleveland Cavaliers Weekly
The Cavaliers are in the midst of a five-game losing streak, tied for their longest this season. The outlook doesn’t look much brighter as they will have to take on the Eastern Conference-leading Pacers in Indiana on Tuesday night. This past week, the losses have all come in extremely close games, for whatever consolation that may be worth. The Cavs dropped two in overtime and another game by only three points, their opponents outscoring them only by a combined nine points in the past three games. One of the largest problems during this five game skid is the defense; opponents have averaged 110.6 points per game against the Cavaliers during this stretch.
