They can also lose four games at home, including losing to underdog magic.
4 Knights (1)
Before last week, the Cavaliers as a defending champion, almost impeccable performance, they LeBron - James play against the background, still played enough dominance. But in last week's game, the knight suddenly dropped chain, the season for the first time suffered three straight. They became the Lakers in 2003, the first defending champion in the regular season, losing two consecutive 17 points or 17 points or more. JR Smith in the game to give up defense, to embrace Jason - Terry, has become a laughingstock.
5 Clippers (4)
2016-17 after the start of the season, the Clippers defensive eyes bright, once the league's best defensive team.
