The 1992-93 NBA season was the 23rd season of the National Basketball Association in Cleveland, Ohio.[1] During the offseason, the Cavaliers signed free agent Gerald Wilkins, and released Steve Kerr early into the season. The Cavaliers struggled with an 8-11 start, but then went on a 7-game winning streak afterwards. The Cavs also had a 12-1 record in February, then posted a ten-game winning streak near the end of the season, finishing 2nd in the Central Division with a 54-28 record. Mark Price led the team in assists and was named to the All-NBA First Team. Three members of the team, Price, Brad Daugherty and Larry Nance were all selected for the 1993 NBA All-Star Game.

A forgotten highlight of this season is when the Cavaliers set a franchise record by scoring 83 points in a half. On January 15, 1993, the visiting Cavs trailed the Indiana Pacers 64-49. Behind 17 points in 21 minutes by reserve guard John Battle, Cleveland rallied to win 132-120.[2]

In the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, the Cavaliers defeated the New Jersey Nets in five games, but were swept in four straight games by the Chicago Bulls in the semifinals. Following the season, Lenny Wilkens resigned and took a coaching job with the Atlanta Hawks,[3] and Craig Ehlo signed as a free agent with the Hawks.
