Cavs Record Last Year

Prior to the 2017-18 season, the Cavs had never lost more than 26 games in a single season. They finished last year with an abysmal record of 50-128, setting the new mark for worst record in franchise history. It was a long and tough year for the team, as they dealt with injuries to key players, trades, and coaching changes.

Despite all of this, they still managed to stay competitive in many games and even put together a few winning streaks. All in all, it was a forgettable year for the Cavs, but one that they will learn from and use to motivate themselves moving forward.

Cavs Record 2002

In 2002, the Cavaliers set a record for most wins in a season with 61. They also made it to the Eastern Conference Finals that year, but lost to the New Jersey Nets. LeBron James was drafted by the Cavs in 2003 and would go on to lead them to their first NBA Championship in 2016.
