Game 44 - Nets @ Cavaliers - Wednesday, February 1, 7:00

Having dispensed with the Eastern Conference's hottest team, the Nets now have to face the team that now has conference's longest winning streak: Cleveland's Cavaliers, winners of six straight. As for Lebron James, he hasn't quite been in the same stratsophere as Kobe Bryant, but he's close, averaging 36 ppg last week. The Nets have had good luck in Cleveland, but winning the back end of a home-and-away, back-to-back while nursing injuries and illnesses will be a challenge.
