After ending one dismal losing streak, the Boston Celtics will attempt to halt another.

Boston looks to avoid a franchise-record 14th straight road defeat by sweeping the season series with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

The Celtics entered Friday on the brink of dropping 10 consecutive games for the first time in more than seven years, but Avery Bradley scored 22 points and Phil Pressey finished with a career-high 13 assists in a 106-103 win over playoff-bound Charlotte.

The Charlotte Bobcats are in position to finish as the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, but it's not clear how big a priority that is for them.

In any case, the Bobcats can take a big step toward that goal with a sixth straight win to start their weekend.

Charlotte begins a back-to-back set against two of the NBA's worst teams with Friday night's road game against the Boston Celtics, who are trying to avoid their longest losing streak in seven years.
