(SportsNetwork.com) - Two of the Eastern Conferences top teams tangle Wednesday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers welcome the Atlanta Hawks to Quicken Loans Arena. The Hawks sit third in the East, while the Cavs are fifth. Both squads come into Wednesdays tilt after victories their last time out. The Cavs snapped a two-game losing streak Monday night with a nine-point victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Both of those losses came on the road and Cleveland has won six straight as the host. On Monday, LeBron James and Kevin Love each delivered monster efforts to get the Cavaliers back on track via a 97-88 victory over the Hornets. Back home after being dealt back-to-back defeats at Oklahoma City and New Orleans, the Cavaliers raced out to a 21-0 lead and held on the rest of the way. James came through with 27 points and 13 assists to lead the charge, with Love pulling down 18 rebounds in addition to a 22-point performance. Having a chance to be home a bit and recharge our batteries certainly helped tonight, said Cavaliers head coach David Blatt. Kyrie Irving added 16 points to help Cleveland drop the Hornets to 1-10 on the road. During this six-game home winning streak, the Cavs have won by an average of 14.3 points. The win was Clevelands ninth straight against an Eastern Conference team and improved the Cavs to 12-3 versus the East this season. Cleveland knocked off the Hawks by 33 points at the Q on Nov. 15. At that time. Atlanta was floundering a bit, but two weeks after the humbling thrashing, the Hawks nine straight. That streak was halted on Saturday in Orlando, but Atlanta got back into the win column on Monday with a 93-86 home victory over the Chicago Bulls. Al Horford totaled 21 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for the Hawks as they picked up their first win over the Bulls in nearly two years. Paul Millsap chipped in 17 points while Jeff Teague added 12 with seven assists for the Hawks, who had dropped six straight against the Bulls since besting them on Dec. 22, 2012. Atlanta bounced back from the Orlando loss by forcing 16 turnovers and holding the Bulls to 37.6 percent shooting. (Chicago) is the type of team where you cant really get behind on, so I felt like our energy was great in the beginning, Horford said. Wednesdays contest is the start of a brutal three-game road trip for the Hawks. Theyll visit the Houston Rockets on Saturday, then the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. For the Cavs, Wednesday will be game two of a five-game homestand which will see the Brooklyn Nets, Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves head to Cleveland. The Cavs victory over the Hawks earlier this season snapped a four-game series losing streak. Atlanta is 5-2 in its last seven at the Q. Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys China .

Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys .Y. -- Syracuses streak lives on -- barely.SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants slugger Michael Morse received a couple of batting tips from home run king Barry Bonds during spring training. He obviously heeded the advice. Morse homered for the second consecutive game to back another stellar outing by Tim Hudson, and San Francisco beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Friday night. "One thing Barry told me was just go up and try to get hits," Morse said. "Home runs are a product of good swings." Morse might have been channeling Bonds a bit when he hit a towering blast to right-centre off Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco. The leadoff shot in the fourth went to one of the deepest parts of the park and is Morses sixth home run of the season. He also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first. "For a guy to hit the ball where he hit it, a man has to do that," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "I guess thats why hes got the nickname The Beast." Hunter Pence had two hits and two RBIs while Brandon Crawford also knocked in a run to help the Giants win in their first interleague game of the season after going just 6-14 against the American League in 2013. Hudson (3-1) scattered four hits over seven innings and struck out five. He walked two, ending an impressive streak of 30 consecutive innings without one. Michael Bourn tripled and scored Clevelands only run. Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher added two hits apiece for the Indians, who lost for just the second time in six games. The Giants jumped on Carrasco for two runs in the first inning, then rode the pitching of Hudson and two relievers to the win in their first game against a team outside of the NL West this season. Hudson had not issued a walk in his first four starts this season before giving up a free pass to Carlos Santana with two outs in the first. It was the longest walk-less streak to start a season by a pitcher in the majors since Tiny Bonhams 33-inning stretch for the New York Yankees in 1944. Hudson also walked Santana in the sixth. Beyond that, San Franciscos crafty right-hander was solid in his first start against the Indians since May 30, 2004. He pitched out of two-out, two-on jam in the first and retired nine straighht after giving up an RBI single to Nick Swisher in the third.dddddddddddd "It was a nice streak to start the year," Hudson said. "Obviously it was not going to continue all year. Thats not typically the kind of pitcher I am." Jeremy Affeldt pitched a scoreless eighth and Javier Lopez worked the ninth to complete the five-hitter. Morse, who homered twice in Wednesdays extra-inning win over Colorado, made it hold up with a sacrifice fly in the first and a leadoff home run in the fourth, a booming shot to centre on an 0-2 pitch from Carrasco. Pence added an RBI triple in the first and an RBI single in the third. Both times he drove in Angel Pagan. Carrasco (0-3) allowed four runs over six innings. The right-hander, winless over his past 17 starts dating to 2011, struck out six and walked one. He didnt get much support, either. The Indians had two runners on in the first, sixth and eighth but failed to score each time. The bottom six spots in Clevelands lineup went 0-for-21. "We couldnt generate enough offence to climb back in," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "(Carrascos) fastball was kind of what plagued him tonight right from the get-go. He was scattering some fastballs and I think thats what got him in a little bit of trouble." Pagan had two hits in his return to the Giants lineup after being limited to a pinch-hitting role on Wednesday. San Franciscos leadoff hitter underwent an MRI on Thursday and was diagnosed with what manager Bruce Bochy called a "chronic small tear" of the patella tendon in his right knee. The Giants made it 5-1 when slumping Pablo Sandoval tripled in the seventh and scored on Brandon Crawfords single. Sandoval, who went into the game batting just .165, was dropped to sixth in the Giants order and went 1-for-3. NOTES: Bochy said he plans to keep Morse in the No. 5 spot as protection for cleanup hitter Buster Posey. Morse leads the Giants with 17 RBIs. ... RHP Tim Lincecum (1-1), who pitches for San Francisco on Saturday, has struck out 24 hitters in 21 innings. ... RHP Zach McAllister (3-0) goes for the Indians and has not allowed a home run in 31 consecutive innings dating to 2013. ' ' '
