Cleveland looks to end a five-game losing streak Sunday night when it visits Philadelphia, which has made up for its lack of scoring with one of the NBA's best defenses. Part of the reason for Cleveland's struggles has been its defense, which ranks near the bottom of the league allowing 104.6 points per game. The Cavs have given up over 100 points in eight straight after a season-opening 94-84 win over Washington. Philadelphia has won five straight meetings by an average of 14.6 points after dropping 10 of the previous 11. Jrue Holiday and the Sixers should overwhelm a poor Cleveland defense that is coming off a loss at home on Saturday night.
