The Cavaliers are in search of their second consecutive road victory on Sunday in New Jersey.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are long out of the playoff race, but will be looking to win their second consecutive game for just the fourth time all season on Sunday when they travel to New Jersey to take on the Nets.

Cleveland upended Toronto 84-80 up in Canada on Saturday to move to 18-35 on the year, a full two games behind New Jersey in the Eastern Conference standings. The Nets, who are also headed straight for the NBA Draft Lottery for yet another year, are a woeful 8-19 at home this season and 12-18 on the road.

The Cavs will once again be without No. 1 overall pick Kyrie Irving, who remains on the sideline after re-aggravating his shoulder injury. The flashy point guard from Duke leads Cleveland in scoring at 18.8 points per game. Sixth man Lester Hudson will hope to continue his hot hand in Irving's absence. Hudson scored a career-high 23 points against the Raptors off the bench, and has made the most of his extended time on the floor as of late.

The Cavaliers and Nets tip off at 6:00 pm ET. Stick with SB Nation Cleveland's StoryStream for continuous updates throughout the contest.
