Cavaliers Go for Two out of Three Tonight vs Milwaukee

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

After Slow second half, Cav's look to Rebound at Home

The Cavaliers are hoping that history will repeat itself tonight at the Q as they welcome the Milwaukee Bucks. Cleveland has won 14 of their last 18 games against the Bucks at Quicken Loans Arena.

Though, last time the two teams faced off, Milwaukee point guard Brandon Jennings hit a buzzer beating three point shot to douse the Cavaliers 105-102. The Cavs will turn to red hot guard C.J. Miles tonight, who will get his third consecutive start at guard. Miles has scored 28 points in back to games, and has scored in double figures in each of the past five games on 51.7% shooting.

Miles fills in for the injured rookie Dion Waters, who has been out since December third with a sore ankle. Coach Byron Scott told reporters that Waiters had his clearance to play from the doctors, but will not see action tonight. "I still need to see him go through a full day of practice," said Scott. "I want to see him play five on five, go up and down the court, attacking the basket, being defended. Only then will I be more satisfied."

Scott's philosophy is that an injured player never looses a starting spot due to injury, but Waiters still has a while to go. The team is targeting Tuesday night vs Toronto for Waiters' return to the floor.
