TORONTO (TICKER) —Winners of consecutive games for the first time this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers try to snap a lengthy road losing streak when they meet the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday.
Cleveland, which has the NBA’s worst record (14-56), defeated Golden State on Tuesday, 124-103, for its first back-to-back victories since winning three in a row last April 6-10.
The Cavs, however, have lost 15 straight road contests since beating Seattle on January 12, 87-79. Cleveland is just 3-32 away from Gund Arena. Only Chicago (3-34) has a worse road mark in the league.
Toronto, which has the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference (21-48), has lost three straight games and nine of 10. On Monday, the Raptors fell at New York, 100-90.
Prior to this season, Cleveland had lost 12 of 13 to Toronto, but the Cavaliers posted a 96-83 home triumph on December 11 and an 81-80 victory here on January 3.
