The Clippers have won four straight games on the road, one shy of the franchise record for consecutive road wins set by the 1973-1974 Buffalo Braves.

The last time the Los Angeles Clippers played in Cleveland, they helped the Cavaliers snap an NBA-record losing streak. Wednesday night, the Clippers can match a franchise record of their own with their fifth straight road win, facing the Cavs at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

The Clippers (15-7) have started out their six-game road trip with wins in Washington D.C. and Orlando, and have won their last four games away from home. In fact, they have scored exactly 107 points in each of their last three road wins and 109 in the other victory. A win on Wednesday would match the 1973-1974 Buffalo Braves for the longest road winning streak in franchise history.

Randy Foye will start at shooting guard in place of Chauncey Billups, who is out for the year with a torn left Achilles. Foye has averaged 7.3 points and 2.1 assists in 19.6 minutes per game so far this season.

The last time the Clippers played in Cleveland was February 11, 2011, facing a Cavs team that had lost an NBA-record 26 games in a row. But the Cavaliers prevailed 126-119 in overtime against the Clippers in that contest.

Rookie Kyrie Irving, picked first overall by Cleveland in the 2011 draft with the pick traded from the Clippers in the Baron Davis / Mo Williams deal, is leading the Cavs (9-14) in scoring (18.0 points per game) and assists (5.1 per game) this season, all while shooting 49.2% from the field. Not bad for a 19-year old. But Irving will have his hands full guarding Chris Paul Wednesday night.

Wednesday night's 4 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and notes about Clippers basketball, be sure to read Clips Nation.
