Cavaliers struggle

With just 9 games left in the regular season the Cavs have gone 2-4 in the last six games. They also are not the top seed in the eastern conference anymore they are tied with the Boston Celtics. The Cavs have been struggling with trying to get familiar with some new teammates that they have added and the bench has not been a big help for them.

During this season the Cavs have been through a lot of ups and downs but chemistry has not been the biggest issue for them. The Cavs have been very injury prone this season with minor and major injuries. Kevin Love earlier this season injured his knee and had to undergo arthroscopic surgery. Another injury that happened to a key player JR Smith in which he broke his thumb and had to get surgery also.

Hopeful that the Cavs start playing well with these last couple more games of the season on the way and are ready to start the playoffs come April 23. The Cavs look to make yet a third straight NBA finals appearance since Lebron James returned to Cleveland. They look to repeat this year by winning yet another championship. The Eastern conference has shown improvement this year with how they have been playing during the regular season but we will see how long that lasts because teams usually fall apart after having good seasons when they end up playing Lebron in the playoffs. We look to see if the Cavs will flip it around.
