As long as they are engaged and putting in the effort, they'll still make the Eastern Conference finals. It's a long season, we know these lulls just happen, Raps are 5-5 in the last 10, but the Cavs are just 6-4. Tough to care an entire season unless you're going for 70+ wins like the Warriors. And look where that got them, gassed by the end of the Finals. Not excusing the loss, it was pathetic. But virtually impossible to take much meaningful from a January game. They've proven over the last 16 months they are indeed the second best team in the East. Not much from the other teams has changed that to me.
