They probably will. But look at who've they've beaten during their streak. Detroit, Philly and a bunch of bad teams.

We had some easy games in our streak, obviously, but we did beat GSW, Toronto, SA, Milwaukee and Philly.

Theyíre in the middle of one of the softest 20-game stretches Iíve seen.  No quality competition.  Iíd say they have a really good chance.

Sixers, Pacers, Jazz and Wizards are all games Cleveland are capable of losing

Yeah, I can definitely see them losing to the Sixers if Embiid plays.  The Cavs don't have anyone who can contend with him.

I guess they started going on that winning streak after LeBron posted that Arthur meme.

Jeez, the things that drive teams to win...

We have to bank on the sixers or pacers to win

No coincidence - they lost probably THE worst outside shooters in the team the their two biggest killers of flood spacing.

With mediocre outside shooters like LeBron and Wade out there, I knew that team could never see success with rose and Thompson out there as well.

Then let's hope Rose and Thompson come back soon.

Probably but I donít care. Lets see how all those old guys look at the end of the season. Thatís the only thing that really matters.

It was Rose, not Thompson.  They lost 2 of 4 after Thompson went down.  They lost the 1st game without Rose and have won every game since.

Didn't Rose announce his retirement?

Exactly right, and that's where cleveland's biggest 'threat' lies.  Without Kyrie their success is going to be 100% dependent on guys like Kevin love, Dwyane wade and Isaiah Thomas being healthy at the end of the season and through the playoffs.

Of any of those guys are at anything less than 95% health the cavs will have a tough road.

If Isaiah can't come back on time or reagrivates the injury, will go on to the playoffs with essentially no PG on their roster.  And if they try to start crowder and love up front against Tatum and horford, I think that matchup definitely goes in our favor. They'll also have no pg who had any hope of defending Kyrie (Thomas coming back doesn't change that).  I think a team like Boston, who has so many shooters, is a bad matchup for a team as defensively questionable as Cleveland. 

Smother them defensively, generate transition opportunities, try to force them to run with us and rule long their old legs can keep up.
