The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to win their second straight game after ending their 10-game losing streak.
Can the words consecutive wins and Cleveland Cavaliers be used in the same sentence? Yes they can as there is a possibility that the Cavs turn one win into a winning streak Wednesday as they take on the Houston Rockets.
Cleveland came away with a narrow one-point win Tuesday which ended a 10-game losing streak which saw some of the worst basketball the team has played in quite some time. Houston is currently on a long losing streak of their own, losing their last eight games. The Rockets have their fare share of injures they are dealing with which has led to their unimpressive 11-18 record. Houston currently has P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon, Victor Oladipo, Christian Wood, and Dante Exum on their injured list.
The Cavaliers have their fair share of injuries as well with Larry Nance Jr., Matthew Dellavedova, Kevin Love, and Tauren Prince listed as injured. This is in addition to essentially exiling Andre Drummond until a trade is found. A combination of injuries, Drummond, and poor play has led to Cleveland’s 11-21 record.
Neither team has been impressive lately and a case can be made for each team to come away with a win. If Houston wins it would end an eight game losing streak. If Cleveland ends up victorious it would be their first time winning consecutive games in a month.
