Nobody thought it was going to be easy for the quickly assembled super squad to find their rhythm — but no one thought they’d falter this badly out of the gate, either. Now 5-7 on the season, LeBron’s squad showed all the classic symptoms of losing basketball in their two weekend losses to the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors.

Gordon Hayward Hits Buzzer-Beater to Thwart LeBron and Cavs

It hasn’t been a good start to the most-hyped season of Cleveland Cavaliers history. LeBron James and Co. have won just one game, and lost three. The most recent fall was to one of last season’s worst teams, the Utah Jazz. Forward Gordon Hayward made sure of it with this game-winning shot:
