On their fourth game in five nights, the Cavs stopped a few streaks.. First and foremost, they snapped their six game losing streak. In addition, they beat Milwaukee for the first time in ten tries and they stopped their 17-game losing streak to the Central Division. They earned it. It was a complete game. For the second night in a row, all five Cavaliers starters scored in double figures and they held the Bucks to just 39% shooting. It was also nice to see them win a game without Kyrie Irving going off. Dion Waiters led the Cavs with 18 points, Tristan Thompson had 14 points and 14 rebounds (his third straight double-double), and CJ Miles scored 16 off the bench. Monta Ellis led everyone with 37 points, but no other Buck player scored in double figures. Also, Luke Walton played 24 minutes and put up this line: 7 points, 6 boards, 4 assists and  3 steals. The Cavs have a chance to start an actual win streak on Wednesday when they travel to Washington to face the Wizards.
