Cleveland Cavaliers Top Sacramento Kings, Total 14th Straight Win

With a 101-95 win over the Sacramento Kings, the Cleveland Cavaliers notched their 14th straight win which ties a franchise record.

This win, and the entire streak for that matter, has been fueled by LeBron James. Last night, James netted 32 points, the final three coming from a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left to secure the game for the Cavaliers.

This game was really a tale of two halves, as the Cavaliers came out flat in the first half and were trailing 57-48.

This win-streak is even more impressive considering the Cavaliers have been without Isaiah Thomas, who was acquired in the offseason the the Kyrie Irving trade. Nursing a knee injury, Thomas has not stepped on the court yeet for the Cavaliers, but plans to do so soon.

While this win streak is impressive, James said that he is not giving it much thought until they start approaching 25 to 30 wins.

“Twenty-five,” he said when asked where the streak needs to get to before becoming significant. “Because you’re getting close to 33 (Lakers 1971-72), that’s the all-time record. We ain’t nowhere near close. We got close in Miami. We got to 27 and lost to Chicago.”

This also brings up the conversation of LeBron James’ run for his fifth NBA MVP and fourth NBA championship.

Along with Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, Houston Rockets’ James Harden and Boston Celtics’ Kyrie Irving, James is in the race as much as anyone else is.

In regards to an NBA title, the Cavaliers are looking very good as a team thus far this season. However, this does not change the fact they they need to fight their way by the Golden State Warriors, a team who some consider among the greatest of all time.

Despite the Cavaliers having an extremely talented team last year, the Warriors still made taking home the NBA Finals look easier than ever.
