February 8th, 2011 by Vin Getz Leave a reply »
As if losing LeBron James in a publicly embarrassing display wasn't enough, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost their 25th game in a row last night, setting a record for the longest losing streak by an NBA team.

Byron Scott's Cavs had an opportunity to avoid this ignominy, but failed to get a shot off with seconds left on the clock, and the Dallas Mavericks took home the win, 99-96.

But whose record did the Cavaliers break?  And which teams own the biggest losing streaks in NBA history?  Here's a rundown of the top 10 losing streaks, either within one season or continued over two seasons.

There are seven teams tied for 10th with 19 losses in a row:

Philadelphia 76ers: 1971-72, 1972-73

San Diego Clippers: 1981-82

Los Angeles Clippers: 1988-89

Dallas Mavericks: 1992-93

Vancouver Grizzlies: 1995-96

Orlando Magic: 2003-04

New Jersey Nets: 2008-09, 2009-10
