The young and struggling Cleveland Cavaliers haven't had a good go of it lately, extending their losing streak to five in a row when they lost to similarly struggling Detroit on Wednesday. They'll get another chance to finally record another win when they meet the new look Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night in Cleveland.
The Bucks are revamped thanks to a deadline trade that netted them Monta Ellis, who is doing his best to help the Bucks make the playoffs alongside Brandon Jennings. At 23-27 they have a better chance than the Cavs do at present, with injuries and trades keeping the veteran presences out of Cleveland and forcing Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, both rookies, to lead the squad on all fronts.
Milwaukee has won the last five meetings between these two teams along with both games so far in 2012.
The game will be at Quicken Loans Arena at 6:30 p.m. ET.
