Wednesday, December 23rd finds two of the lower-tier Eastern Conference clubs playing their first game of the season as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Charlotte Hornets.
Neither club was a part of the Disney bubble in Orlando subsequently this will be the first competitive game the clubs have played in over nine months that counts toward the win-loss record.
The Cavaliers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 67 wins in 112 meetings. Last season, because of the pandemic and suspended season the squads played just twice each winning once.
GM Mitch Kupchak had a bit of a roller coaster style offseason. LaMelo Ball is the perfect guard for their system and fits with Devonte Graham.
Charlotte stretched and waived Nicolas Batum and also moved on from Dwayne Bacon and Willy Hernangomez.
The Cavaliers continue to look like a club with misfitting roster pieces and still have Kevin Love locked in for another three years.
Coby Altman made a great draft selection in Isaac Okoro who is precisely the type of player Cleveland required both in terms of his position and his defensive mindset.
But, the Cavs continue their odd obsession with big men. Tristan Thompson exited but Cleveland then added JaVale McGee and as of this writing were giving Thon Maker a shot. This on top of Love, Andre Drummond (who opted in), and Larry Nance Jr.
Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff seemed to figure out some schematic situations partway through last season but those main problems remain and as such presumably the Cavaliers will be lottery-bound again.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 9-4 in CHA last 13 overall.
- CLE are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games.
- Under is 6-2 in the teams last 8 meetings
Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
While the Cavaliers have some nice assets the elephant in the room is maximizing the backcourt of Darius Garland and Collin Sexton. The youngsters have demonstrated ability but haven’t figured out how to benefit each other.
The Hornets will also likely be lottery-bound, but something tells me they’ll be in the mix for the play-in tournament and might have some fun outings this season particularly if Washington and Bridges continue their ascent.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets even
Given the oddsmakers elected to make the spread even, it’s almost a tip of the hat to the Hornets who are the road team and that’s who I’m giving the nod to.
