Cavs End 26 Game Losing Streak

The Cleveland Cavaliers have have both the worst and second worst losing streaks in the NBA, this season making the worst. They finally broke that streak when they beat the Clippers in overtime.

It’s over. Finally. Barely.

Nearly two months after it started innocently, the Cleveland Cavaliers stopped their NBA-record losing streak at 26 games Friday night with a 126-119 win in overtime against the Los Angeles Clippers, who did all they could to extend the Cavs’ misery.

Cleveland won for the first time since Dec. 18, and had to go an extra five minutes to ensure it didn’t set a record for the longest skid in pro sports history.
