The Cleveland Cavaliers’ extended slump — 12 losses in their last 18 games, including Saturday’s 120-88 embarrassment against the Houston Rockets — has hurt the Cavs so much that they’re closer to being out of the playoffs than they are to being the Eastern Conference’s top seed.

Coming into Monday, Cleveland trailed the Boston Celtics — No. 1 in the East — by 7½ games while only leading the No. 9-seeded Detroit Pistons by 5 games.
