It was a bad March for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Injuries plagued the group, players lost their effectiveness as a team and they ended the month with a huge losing streak that extended all the way into April, sitting right now at eight straight. They have a chance to avoid making it nine straight on Wednesday when they head to Wisconsin to meet the Milwaukee Bucks.

Milwaukee has a new look recently since they pulled off some moves at the trade deadline, specifically their pick up of Monta Ellis from Golden State adding an extra dimension to their play alongside Brandon Jennings. Cleveland will stick to its usual formula and hope for big performances from rookie duo Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson as they wait for this lost season to end so they can work towards more high draft picks to build their young squad.

The Bucks absolutely destroyed Cleveland the last time these two teams met, winning 121-84 in Cleveland. That has capped off what has so far been a one sided season series featuring three wins by the Bucks.

The game will be at the Bradley Center at 8:00 p.m. ET.
