When does the losing streak end?
 
Really, our best chance will be Friday @ home against Minnesota.

Considering we have road games in Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Charlotte and home games against the Spurs, Wolves, Blazers, Clippers and Heat, I'm starting to wonder when we'll win again.

archie63 02-01-2011 08:56 AM

Aren't we trying to loose every game so we got the #1 pick?

thought 02-01-2011 09:05 AM

i'm all for tanking but i don't think losing every game the rest of the way is in this team's best interests either. these young guys are busting their asses and need to be rewarded with a win every once in a while. hopefully they can grab one in minnesota this friday.

atlanta for some reason is a team where our young dudes show their fullest potential, we can sneak a win on that team if everything goes right

Losing streak ends when we play Cleveland next.

They've lost 21 in a row. lol.

is this our longest losing streak in franchise history ?...honestly can't remember

jrob23 02-01-2011 10:16 AM

17 i believe.. could be wrong

but i cant see us winning against any of those teams.. Minnesota is gonna run through us again, basically any team that develops a game plan of attacking Jose and Andrea will get wins vs. us

with that said tho who knows, Bargnani is due for a crazy game so hopefully that happens later than sooner (tankmode is in full effect)

Shadowfax 02-01-2011 10:22 AM

holy shit...just looked at the schedule and there is a very real possibility that this team won't see another win until March 4th (New Jersey)
that would be a 24 game losing streak

Will we win the award for longest losing streak EVER by an NBA team?

Cuz there really should be an award for that. This way we at least win something.

MikeToronto 02-01-2011 10:52 AM

Interestingly enough, I believe they are losing mostly because their offence has turned south in a big way. Some R&R is coming up, perhaps a shrink session or two (@Bargs - do it, man) and they could be back to their merry 109-108 ways. ;)

I think the Cavs will win that award

MikeToronto 02-01-2011 11:33 AM

The Cavs are on their way to establish a new NBA record for the drop-off between two consequetive seasons, I am sure.

it's almost exclusively due to the offense slumping

that's partly due to bargnani's collapsing (he's probably exhausted, although it's not very clear to me why, he's not playing heavy minutes ..), but mostly because we're missing our only two point shooters off the bench (kleiza and barbosa). When Jose is out, and with bargnani struggling, teams just clog the middle and we seem to be happy shooting long jumpers throughout the game. Even Amir is shooting more jumpers lately than he did the whole of last season.
