The Cleveland Cavaliers are now 50 games into the 82-game season. They have been to extreme highs and lows already as we saw them defeat league powers while also succumbing to bottom feeders. Some players transitioned to new roles while others tried to get rid of old habits. From chemistry to coaching issues and even talks of LeBron bolting Cleveland one more time, the Cavs have seen a lot this “early” and no team has grown before our eyes in a 50-game span the way the Cavs did. Through the hard fought victories and the unexpected losses, here are the 10 select games that help sum up the first 50 games of the season for the Cavaliers. We start from the beginning of the season:

10. October 30, 2014, New York Knicks 95 @ Cleveland Cavaliers 90

After a monumental off-season headlined by LeBron James` homecoming, people finally got to see the new material. The season opener. New uniforms. Elaborate preparations within The Q and around the city. Epic player intros. The tip-off. Everyone was pumped up and the atmosphere was electric, to say the least.

The Cavaliers started off with a lot of energy and despite the Knicks being able to stay within striking distance, the Cavs` confidence was still evident. However, the defense slowly fell apart as the Cavs became witness to the Knicks making one open jump-shot after another. Signs of the team`s lack of cohesiveness also became evident and miscommunication was everywhere.

Cleveland lost this one and it was an overview of a grueling start to the season.
