The Nets finish their 3 game road trip in Cleveland as they take on the struggling Cavs. After winning 7 straight and 11 out of 13 to take the 6th spot in the East, Cleveland has lost 4 straight to fall back out of the playoffs. They can get back into a tie with Boston for the 8th seed with a win. Thanks to Cleveland's loss Friday night in Philadelphia, the Nets have clinched a playoff birth, but their magic number to clinch the Atlantic Division remains at 4. They will be playing without Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin for the 5th straight game. Richard Jefferson is averaging 23.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game in their absence.
