On Tuesday the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to extend the Charlotte Bobcats' misery -- and to relieve their own.
The Cavs have lost 10 of their last 11 and 13 of their last 15. But Cleveland can still look down its nose at Charlotte.
The Bobcats come to town having lost 12 straight, threatening to eclipse the 16-game losing streak they had in January and February. That 16-game skid was sandwiched between six- and five-game losing streaks, helping explain Bobcats' NBA-worst 7-48 record.
Not that Cleveland has a lot to be haughty about. The Cavs' last 10 losses have come by an average of 18 points. The Cavs are 1-9 over their last 10, the Bobcats 0-10 -- the two worst marks in the league.
Kyrie Irving is expected to miss another game -- his fourth straight -- which means Lester Hudson figures to again get a lot of run. Hudson is coming off a career-high 26-point performance in which he hit 6 of 12 three-point attempts.
