Update: A marquee matchup last season is no longer the same this time. The Cavaliers have lost 20 of their last 21 games and haven't recovered since Miami forward LeBron James thumped his former team, 118-90, in early December. Forward Antawn Jamison is the Cavaliers' leading scorer, averaging 16.4 points a game. The Cavaliers recently lost center Anderson Varejao for the season because of a torn tendon in his right foot.
