CLEVELAND (AP) - Shockingly fast, the Cleveland Cavaliers have gone from first to worst.

The Cavaliers _ the NBA’s best team during the regular season the past two years _ have lost 14 straight games and 24 of 25. At 8-33, they have the league’s poorest record. The losing began during the summer when LeBron James left as a free agent and hasn’t slowed.
