LeBron James didn't look particularly thrilled walking into Friday's Cleveland Cavaliers-Chicago Bulls contest in a full Cubs uniform, and he certainly wasn't happy at all after the Cavs dropped a 111-105 decision - their third straight loss.

"The honeymoon stage is over," James said after the game, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. "There's your headline ... we got to man up. Everybody."

With Cleveland's defeat and the Toronto Raptors' win Friday, the Raps are now only half a game behind them for top spot in the Eastern Conference. It's the Cavs' first three-game losing streak in exactly one year, when they dropped a trio of games between Dec. 1-5, 2015.


The current losses have not been particularly close ones for Cleveland either, coming with margins of 17, 19, and six points respectively. James himself had his worst game of the still-young campaign in Thursday's defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers, shooting 5-of-14 from the floor - including 0-for-2 from deep - with a season-low 16 points.
