Cavaliers bring back memories of hapless Bucs
Posted Feb. 08 at 08:50 AM
The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost 25 games in a row. That breaks their own NBA record, set almost 30 years ago over a two-season stretch.
It also brings them to within reach of the record for most consecutive losses in any of the four major sports leagues. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers still hold that one; they lost their first 26 games before winning a pair at the end of their second season.
