After achieving back-to-back wins for the first time this season last week, the Cleveland Cavaliers have fallen back into their losing ways, dropping three straight games. As a result the Cavs are 7-26 and trail the Indiana Pacers by 12.5 games in the Central Division.
Cleveland is in last place in the division, trailing the Chicago Bulls (17-13) by 11.5 games and the Milwaukee Bucks (16-14) by 10.5 games. With the Detroit Pistons in the midst of a hot streak and up to 12-22 on the season, Cleveland even trails Detroit by 4.5 games.
On the bright side, the Cavs are not last place in the Eastern Conference, that honor belongs to the Washington Wizards, who hold a league-worst 4-26 record. Cleveland has the second worst record in the conference, just below the Charlotte Bobcats, who are 8-23. The Cavs have a chance to close to within a game of the Bobcats when they travel to Charlotte on Friday.
