Could streak end tonight?

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Some observers think tonight's game at 9 o'clock in Milwaukee could be a tough one for the Cavs.

It will be the back end of a four-games-in-five-nights stretch. It will be on the road. Also, Bucks guard Michael Redd could play for the first time since Nov. 2. He's been out with a sprained ankle.

The Cavs, though, have been playing inspired basketball. That's why I'm not betting on them having their 4-game winning streak snapped. They are not only doing it offensively, but are stopping good offensive teams in their tracks.

That has started with G Delonte West. He put the clamps on Stephen Jackson on Friday. Jackson was just 2 of 11 from the field en route to 11 points. West has stopped some All-Stars in the last couple weeks, such as the Nets' Vince Carter, Atlanta's Joe Johnson and now Jackson.

The Cavs lost three of four games to the Bucks last year, but that was when Mo Williams played in Wisconsin. He will be making his first trip back to Milwaukee since the August trade. He could go off on a big night for the Cavs.
