Cavs, Clippers To Meet For First Time Since Point Guard Swap

It has been one month and eight days since the Cavaliers prevented a historical loosing splash at The Q in Cleveland. Since then, now ex-Cavalier guard Mo Williams and forward Jamario Moon were sent out west to the Clippers for Baron Davis and an unprotected first round draft pick. That deal is yet to prove its merit to either team. The Clippers are a measly 5-6 since the trade, with the Cavaliers at a deprived 3-7.

While Cleveland's top scorer Antawn Jamison remains out for the year with broken pinky finger, the Clippers could get a solid reinforcement with the return of two-guard and leading scorer Eric Gordon. Because of a wrist injury, Gordon was sidelined for 24 of 26 games, one of those games was against the Wine and Gold.

Clippers big man Blake Griffin scored 32 points and reeled in 13 boards in the Los Angeles falter. He leads the league with 54 double-doubles, but has not recorded one in the past five games. The Clippers, going back to 2005, have lost nine straight against the Cavs.
