The Cleveland Cavaliers had a short winning streak snapped in their last outing - a 96-88 defeat at the hands of the Toronto Raptors, coming after straight wins over the Denver Nuggets, Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets. They'll get a chance to right the ship on Wednesday when they hit the road to take on the Milwaukee Bucks. Also worth noting that it creates the possibility of snapping another team's three-game winning streak, though the Bucks have a more impressive streak on their hands.

No, the quality of their competition isn't significantly higher, but they bested the Raptors, Nets and Knicks while scoring at least 105 points in all three games. Their last outing was a 105-99 win over the Nets (and the win before that was also 105-99, over the Raptors) and they're trying to make it four-straight on Wednesday.

Cleveland and Milwaukee have had similar seasons, sporting similar records with the former sitting at 16-24 and the latter at 18-24, both hovered around .500 for a time and both have since stalled out. The Bucks are certainly looking like the better team at the moment though, and the Cavs seemingly have an uphill battle for this one.

There's a chance that the Cavs will also have to deal with Monta Ellis, who just arrived in Milwaukee in a trade with the Golden State Warriors. The Bucks sent Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson in exchange for Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown. The Bucks could become a very stacked team offensively, while the Cavs have yet to do much to get better this season. The game is set for 8:00 p.m. eastern.
