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

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

They actually stArting playing better once they lost Thompson and rose also

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.

Didn't Rose announce his retirement?

He had 80 million reasons to stay:

Derrick Rose returns to the Cavs
...
However, ESPN pointed out that if Rose were to retire, he would forfeit the remaining seven years of his shoe deal with Adidas, worth about $80 million. The former Bulls star is making $2.1 million with the Cavs this season.

I voted no.  The Cavs certainly could, but I think they slip up in the next 5 games.  It is hard to keep a streak that long and eventually you just get tired and a lesser team beats you (see Boston losing to Miami).

Their next opponents:
-Kings
-pacers
-Sixers
-hawks
-lakers
-jazz
-wizards


They get easy competition facing the hawks like 3 times during their streak lol


6 of those 7 games are part of 3-games-in-4-nights stretches though, with the Sixers and Wizards both being the 3rd game in 4 nights and the 2nd night of a back-to-back for the Cavs. 

On the flip side the Sixers will be coming off 2 days rest (but playing on the road), while the Wizards will have 1 day off (but in the middle of a home stand).

Sixers and Wizards will be tough outs.

Especially because I think both teams are tricky match up for the Cavs.

The Cavs are tiny with Love and Crowder up front, and the Wizards front line is big, strong and physical. Without Thompson that's a tough match-up. Throw in the speed and athleticism of beal and wall (if he plays) against cleveland's age... It's not looking pretty.

On the other hand if Embiid plays for the Sixers, I can't think of anybody on the cavs roster who can deal with him.  He's a monster on both ends, and simmons (as a 6'10" / 240 pound PG) is a matchup nightmare for anybody...let alone a Cavs team that currently kinda has no PG.

I dont care if they win 20 in a row...

As long as we are on top of em by seasons end who cares whatever streak they do...

Frnkly im more of a lose 1 for every 9 games and we still end up with a very good record.
