Cavs vs. Nets, Game 25

CAVS (18-7) 99, NEW JERSEY NETS (2-23) 89
at Quicken Loans Arena
Tonight at 7
TV: Fox Sports Ohio

WHAT HAPPENED: The Cavs have now won 8 in a row at home. They are now 10-2 at home this season.

The Nets dropped to an NBA-worst 2-23 record. They are last in scoring, field-goal percentage, 3-point percentage and assists per game. Besides that, they're pretty good (just kidding).

They have a decent backcourt in Courtney Lee and Devin Harris. Both have had nagging injuries. Center Brook Lopez is a rising star in this league if he stays healthy.

NOTES: The Cavs have won 5 in a row over New Jersey by an average of 14.8 points per game.

-- The Cavs are 9-0 when they shoot 50 percent or better.

-- In the Cavs' eight-game winning streak at The Q, LeBron James has averaged 25 points, 9.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds.

-- The Cavs came into the game allowing an NBA-low 34.2 points in the paint. They outscored the Nets on Tuesday, 59-30.
