Cavs lose again - third loss in a row and the eighth loss in their last eleven games.

But, guys, don't worry. The Cavs are fine, because they always do this in the middle of the season.
the whole ”cavs only care about playoff” theory is ridiculous. It assumes that Father Time doesn’t exist also. It’ll be funny if the Cavs go to 7th or 8th seed. Or dare I say it... miss the playoffs. One losing streak  and they’ll be in that discussion

We kinda have to give James the benefit of the doubt. He hasn't dominated the East for most of the decade for no reason, and IT still isn't back 100%. As much as I'd love to say "this is for real", he's stormed through the East too many times for me to think he and his team won't pick it up once the playoffs come round.

I'm not writing them off until they're eliminated from the playoffs. I especially don't want to see them drop so low that Boston ends up facing them in the first or second round.

For what ever struggles the Cavs are having, I'm still not thrilled about facing LeBron in the playoffs.  He always finds that next gear.

They are loading up on ex Celtics. Someone should tell them neither of those two ever knew much about Steven's playbook to begin with.

He is playing 20 minutes a game and shooting 35% so probably not quite there yet...

Toronto's getting clobbered by Philly and I am here for it. We need them to rack up those losses to stretch our margin of error for homecourt.

This may be the rare game where Philly plays a complete game and doesn't cough up a big lead.

Looks like we both might've jinxed this, Raptors climbing back in it.

Great for our standings, but I have to admit, I am beginning to get a bit worried about facing the Sixers in the 1st round of the playoffs. I would hope we draw a better matchup, they are dangerous.

I'm not at all worried about them. We match up really well with them.
