The Cavaliers get set for a back to back as they head into Atlanta on Friday night.
Cleveland continues their pursuit of the 1 seed while the Hawks are in their own battle for the 3rd seed in the East.
Cleveland once again stopped their own momentum.
After leading by 18 against the Rockets and looking like it was a good idea to bench Lebron James, things completely fell off. The Cavaliers blew the lead completely and eventually Trevor Ariza’s 3 pointer with just 10 seconds to go was the dagger as the Cavaliers fell at home to Houston.
With the loss, the Cavaliers are now just 2.0 games up on the Raptors as they continue to be unable to put the race away.
Cleveland will get the benefit of playing Brooklyn in the first portion of their head to head on Thursday night before coming here. The road has been kind to Cleveland as they are 22-15 SU and holding the opposition to just 97 points per road game.
The Hawks continue their trek toward the 3rd spot as every win is important going forward here for them.
Atlanta currently holds the 3rd spot up a full game on all three teams chasing them. They did the Cavaliers no favors last time out as they fell in Toronto 105-97, pushing the Raptors to just 2 games back of Cleveland.
The Hawks return home now to a place that has really treated them well on the year. Atlanta has gone 24-13 SU and 20-17 ATS this season inside Philips Arena.
Atlanta fell the last time these two teams met as the Cavaliers took care of business in Cleveland 109-97. Atlanta was out rebounded by 13 and shot just 37.2% from the field.
