The Cavs are playing some really good ball right now. Caught most of their win at OKC, pretty impressive.
Charlotte is hanging on in the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference but I really don’t know how they do it.
They are feisty I guess and that is a good quality against Cleveland.
The Hornets are on a roll heading into this one with five victories in a row. I still believe that their roster doesn’t make much sense but it is working right now.
The key has been the return of Al Jefferson. They are bringing him off the bench which is giving them a scoring option in those rare moments Kemba Walker is not on the floor.
Walker is having a very good season. I know his shooting percentages are not great but he bails his team out at the buzzer as much as any player in the league.
Other than Jefferson and Walker the only other reliable scorer is Nicolas Batum. He is also not having a great shooting season and probably should be in a more complementary role.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was back for a heartbeat and now is done for the season. That might have been part of the reason they went after Courtney Lee.
Lee is not a terrific player but with his toughness he will fit in well on a team where you have to play defence to play.
The Cavs may have looked great on the road at OKC but then they followed it up with a home loss to Detroit. Sure it was a back to back but they fell down early in that one and never really got back into it.
They still have a solid margin over Toronto in the East but dampens the expectations a little.
LeBron James might have played his worst game of the season scoring just 12 points. This group has to be able to bail him out every once in a while.
Kyrie Irving did his best with a 30 point game and Kevin Love scored 24 but it just wasn’t enough. No one other that those three scored more than seven.
It is interesting because it was the depth of the team that was so critical against the Thunder.
Cleveland is a funny team. I am pretty sure they are elite but when you go player by player things fall off pretty quickly after their top three.
After a day off they will be a good bounce back candidate in this one. They rarely lose at home. They haven’t lost back to back at home all season.
Maybe there is some extra value there.
