Thursday, November 30 finds Eastern Conference rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks meeting for the second time this season. In the first meeting the Hawks beat the Cavaliers 117-115.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Hawks winning three of the four contests. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers 121 of their 221 matches.
A victory in Miami extended the Cavaliers win streak to nine games. Notably only two teams (Pistons/76ers) have winning records in this run and the Hawks represent yet another sub .500 team for Cleveland to feast upon.
In the Heat victory LeBron James produced an amazing stat line of 21 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 steals and 1 block. This was accomplished in just 28:26 since the super star was ejected from the first game of his NBA career.
Over the 9-game win streak the Cavaliers offense and defense has ranked fourth in the NBA. Granted they are playing lower tier teams, but the Cavaliers are excelling in spite of missing Tristan Thompson, Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose.
Iman Shumpert also missed the game in Miami nursing a knee injury. His status is will be a game time decision in Atlanta.
Historically, Atlanta has registered some of their best performances against Cleveland. The Hawks began the season with a win over Dallas and then lost eight games in a row until the win at Cleveland. Since this victory the Hawks have won just twice since (Kings/Knicks) and lost a further eight times.
In their last game the Hawks suffered their worst loss of the season at the hands of the Raptors. Toronto thoroughly dominated Atlanta on both sides of the hardwood leading by more than 40 points at times and ultimately registering a 34 point differential.
Although Dennis Schroder led the Hawks in scoring (28) and assists (9) at Cleveland it was rookie John Collins who was key to the victory. Collins produced arguably his best stat line of the season with 12 points, 13 rebounds (7 offensive boards), 2 blocks and had a team high plus 15 differential.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: Take the OVER
This has trap game written all over it. The Hawks last played Saturday, so four full days of practice to prepare for the Cavaliers and a history of beating them. LeBron James has his team functioning well, but the Cavaliers defense is still suspect.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bet the OVER
As per the score below I’m giving the edge to Cleveland; however I could just as easily select the Hawks to win. The more important factor will be a rested Hawks team who always show up to face LeBron and this time it’s with rested legs.
