The Philadelphia 76ers will head out on the road to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:30 p.m. ET at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.

Last Wednesday, the 76ers were just a bucket shy of victory and fell 108-107 to the Clippers. Philadelphia was up 36-21 in the second but couldn’t hold on to the lead.

Tyrese Maxey put forth a good effort for the losing side as he scored 26 points along with eight assists and seven rebounds.

The Cavaliers came into the contest on Wednesday with a huge advantage in the spread, but given the result that advantage might’ve gone to their heads. They took a 118-111 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Hornets. Cleveland got off to an early lead (up 14 with 0:35 left in the first quarter), but sadly they weren’t able to maintain that momentum.
