(Newser) – The Cleveland Cavaliers won't be the biggest losers in sports history—but they're tied. The Cavs ended an epic 26-game losing streak last night against the Los Angeles Clippers, halting their skid just before going over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' mark. The Cavs hadn't won a game since December 18, and notes the Cleveland Plain Dealer, of course it took them overtime to do it. "It felt great," says guard Mo Williams. "I can watch ESPN tonight."
