There are just four games left in the regular season for the Cleveland Cavaliers…but in reality, the season is effectively over as they currently sit four games outside of the playoff picture. Unless a miracle happens, the Cavaliers will miss the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year and will once again be searching for offseason answers.
Cleveland did everything possible to try and compete in 2013-2014, from signing Andrew Bynum last summer, to the mid-season acquisitions of Luol Deng and Spencer Hawes. None of it turned out to be enough for the Cavaliers. But in a season full of heartbreak and disappointment, there were five loses that were particularly damaging to last summer’s playoff dreams.
