Not a great time to be suffering injuries to your core group but that’s what the Cavaliers are currently dealing with. Darius Garland missed the last two games with a sore quad and Jarrett Allen left the last match with an eye injury.

Although they aren’t likely to win the Victor Wembanyama sweepstakes or even get into the play-in tournament there are small victories the Hornets can pull from this segment of the season.
Most notably, head coach Steve Clifford has the Hornets playing much better defensively (sixth best offense through the last five games) and that’s led to their recent success and wins.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
For most of the season I’ve pointed to the Cavs success and good fortune due to facing opponents without their stars versus losses when facing the same teams at full strength.
A new item I’m noticing is the impact of Donovan Mitchell iso ball late in games. Sure, he’s a superstar and brilliant baller, but watch his teammates on the court when he reverts to iso-ball late in games.
At these moments his teammates look far less invested in defense because Mitchell essentially takes them out of sync — and subsequently they’ve lost some close matches lately in spite of massive scoring efforts from Mitchell.
Cleveland can’t afford to underestimate the Hornets who’ve shocked a few elite teams lately. That shouldn’t be a factor versus the Hornets although they can’t take them for granted.
