The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking to break out of a recent slump and earn their fourth straight victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday, as both Eastern Conference franchise clash at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. ET on NBA TV). The 76ers (27-22) are losers of five of their last seven contests, however, are holding steady to the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Philly could get a nice spark to its roster Tuesday too, as forward Andre Iguodala could return to the lineup after missing just one game because of a left patella tendinitis. On Sunday, the play of Iguodala was missed in a 93-76 loss at the San Antonio Spurs.

Meanwhile, the Cavs are loser of their last three games, the latest coming Sunday against the Phoenix Suns, 108-83.
