Revenge will be on the mind of the Cavs as they welcome in the Milwaukee Bucks to The Q.  If you don’t recall, the Cavs lost on a buzzer beating three from Brandon Jennings.

The hot shooting C.J. Miles comes into the game with 28 points in each of his last two games.  He’ll be matched up against Monta Ellis who is averaging over 18 points per game.

Kyrie Irving will be playing in his third game back from injury.  He had different results in the first two games.  He had a welcome back party against the struggling Lakers as he scored 28 points and 11 rebounds.  The very next night the team traveled to Indians to take on the Pacers and Irving failed to score in double digits.  Tonight we will see if Irving is full healthy, or if he came back too early.

Milwaukee has a respectable 11-9 record and is coming into the game on a three-game winnings streak.

Dion Waiters will not play again tonight as he continues to rest with a sprained ankle and is expected to return early next week.
