No one can deny that the Cleveland Cavaliers have been on an incredible run lately.
A few weeks ago, many people wrote the team off and assumed the season was over when both Evan Mobley and Darius Garland were injured.
But instead of falling apart, the Cavaliers have only gotten stronger because of such challenges.
They are now the fourth team in the East and have won their last seven games.
As noted by Nick Karns on Twitter, the Cavaliers haven’t just won their last seven games in a row; they’ve also gone 8-2 during their last ten games too.
Only two other teams have an 8-2 record over the last ten games: the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers.
Not only have the Cavs won 7 games in a row, they're 8-2 over their last 10 games, which is tied for the best record in the NBA over that span. 👀 pic.twitter.com/8SWrTdTQAJ

The Cavaliers have beaten a number of teams lately, some more challenging than others.
They have taken down the Washington Wizards twice and the San Antonio Spurs, but they have also faced the more difficult Atlanta Hawks and the Milwaukee Bucks too.
They are about to face four of their toughest opponents yet and will really be tested.
On Monday night, they will battle the Orlando Magic and then play the Milwaukee Bucks twice before facing off against the Los Angeles Clippers next Monday.
If they are able to keep their winning streak going during this batch of games, people will be even more impressed.
The returns of Mobley and Garland are approaching, which will only enhance the team’s chances and make them a stronger unit.
The Cavaliers have impressed NBA fans all over during this surge.
Against all odds, they have pushed through devastating injuries and are now doing better than most of the league.
How much longer can they keep it up?
