Nets-Cavaliers Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers had their home winning streak snapped with their worst defeat of the season, which drew the ire of coach David Blatt and caused Kyrie Irving to put in some extra work.

As Irving looks to recover from one of his least productive efforts, Cleveland hopes to get back on track defensively while avoiding its fourth loss in five games Friday night against the visiting Brooklyn Nets.

The Cavaliers believed they solved their early struggles on the defensive end, limiting opponents to 91.6 points on 43.6 percent shooting during an eight-game winning streak. Those concerns, however, have resurfaced after they gave up 109.3 and a 52.0 field-goal percentage while dropping three of their last four.
