The newly LeBron-less 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers hold the longest NBA losing streak of all time – 26 games. The Cavs also hold the second-longest losing streak of all time, 24 games over two seasons (1981-82 and 1982-83).

Below find all teams – now 11 – that lost at least 20 games in a row, whether in a single season or through two.

UPDATED LIST: Through the Philadelphia 76ers current 25-game drought. The Sixers now have the second-longest losing streak of all, and it’s still alive.
