Game Summary

The Cavaliers will go for their fifth straight win when they travel to the BMO Harris Bradley Center to face the Milwaukee Bucks. Tipoff is at 8:00 p.m. (ET).

Cleveland is an Eastern Conference-best 13-2 on the season, which is their best 15-game start in team history.

The Wine and Gold continue to light it up from beyond the arc. The Cavs have hit at least 10 three-pointers in all 15 games, extending their NBA record for consecutive games with 10 or more made threes to start a season. They also rank 2nd in threes made per game (13.8) and 2nd in three-point field goal percentage (.392).

The Cavs have four players who rank among the NBA’s Top 20 in three-point field goal percentage: Frye (1st, .485), Shumpert (8th, .459), Irving (15th, .433), Love (17th, .430).

As a result of their sharp shooting, Cleveland is averaging 112.0 points in 2016-17 (2nd-best in NBA) and has scored at least 110 points in three straight games (seven overall).

Cleveland hopes to keep their dominance at the offensive end rolling as they close out their mini road trip on Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee has had an up-and-down start to their 2016-17 campaign and come into Tuesday's contest sporting a 7-8 record.

The Wine and Gold will square off against a familiar face in Bucks point guard, Matthew Dellavedova. Dellavedova spent his first three seasons in Cleveland before inking a deal with Milwaukee this offseason.

Delly has made the most of his departure thus far and is handing out a career-high 6.3 assists per game, which ranks 13th in the NBA this season. The Aussie floor general is also averaging career-highs in points (7.9), rebounds (2.9), steals (1.0) and minutes played (29.1) on the season. He has handed out 5+ assists in 10 games in 2016-17, including five of his last six games.

Along with Delly, the Bucks rising superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo or "The Greek Freak", is off to a fantastic start this season. Antetokounmpo has tallied five games with 25+ points, 5+ rebounds and 5+ assists this campaign, trailing only LeBron James (6) for most 25-5-5 games in the Eastern Conference. Over his last five games, Antetokounmpo is averaging 24.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.0 blocks per game.
