Cleveland bounced back from a devastating buzzing beating loss on Friday with a giant win over the Pelicans.
Now they’ll look to make it 2 straight as they welcome in the Sacramento Kings on Monday. The Kings have literally fell off everything after their 5 game win streak came to a halt.
Sacramento had won 5 straight games and had a chance to make it 6 against the Hornets.
They ended up losing in double overtime and since that loss, the wheels have completely fallen off. The Kings are in the midst of a 3 game losing streak and now rumblings have come about pertaining to potential coaching changes.
Regardless, the Kings need to figure things out quickly or their chances at grabbing a spot in the Western Conference playoffs will be completely gone. Currently, the Kings sit in 10th, 4.5 games off the 8 seed.
Sacramento has completely lost it on defense lately. The Kings have allowed an average of 117.9 points over their last 8 games. On the season, their total has risen to 108.9 against, which is an NBA worst.
The Cavaliers have had a very unstable start with Tyrone Lue calling the shots.
While they continue to find wins, the run and gun style of offense hasn’t been as consistent as he’s liked. Cleveland split a pair of weekend home dates as the Celtics knocked them off Friday with a buzzer beater, but they then responded with a double digit win over the Pelicans.
Things will be a bit tougher on Cleveland as they continue to see Kevin Love try to return from injury.
On Friday, Love went down with a thigh injury and missed out on Saturday’s win. He is listed as QUESTIONABLE for Monday.
Cleveland will also be without Matthew Dellavedova who continues to battle a left hamstring injury. While he is listed as OUT right now, he will participate in shoot-around Monday to test the hammy.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free NBA Prediction:
Cleveland hasn’t played up to their standards by any means, but they still have plenty of talent and are finding ways to get wins.
Sacramento has completely lost it. With rumbles about a coaching change, along with their poor play, look for Cleveland to certainly have their way here on Monday.
With or without Love, they have no problem here.
