The 1993–94 Cleveland Cavaliers season was the 24th season of NBA basketball franchise based in Cleveland, Ohio. Under new head coach Mike Fratello, the Cavaliers were again bitten by the injury bug as Brad Daugherty and Larry Nance both missed large parts of the season. However, Mark Price would step it up leading the team in scoring, assists and was named an All-Star and All-NBA 3rd team. The Cavaliers finished the season with a 47–35 record, finishing 4th in the Central Division. In the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals of the playoffs, they were swept by the Chicago Bulls in three straight games. This was also the Cavaliers final season playing at The Coliseum in Richfield, Ohio. Following the season, Nance retired. This was also Daugherty's final year of his career as he missed all of next season due to injuries.
