The Cleveland Cavaliers still have plenty of young talent which can throw a wrench in the Hornets playoff hopes this Friday, as these two squads meetup at the Spectrum Center on Friday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been real bad the last few months, as this team actually started out the year around .500, but then really fell off of a cliff in terms of their overall performances. I do believe there are better days on the horizon for this team and this franchise though, as I am a massive fan of their young talent and think they provide a solid core to build around in the coming years.
Some of that talent was shown off in the Cavs last game, as they took the Chicago Bulls gate to wire in a victory where Collin Sexton put up 30 points while Darius Garland followed with 25 of his own.
Kevin Love has also been back, although playing sporadic minutes, but he was effective in his 26 minutes against the Bulls scoring 15 points and falling just 1 board short of a double double with 9 rebounds.
The Charlotte Hornets are another team to be excited about, as we saw what they could do when they were healthy. They have been bitten by the injury bug in a big way though, and that has now shown in their record, as they have only been able to pick up a win in 1 of their last 7 games putting their playoff position in jeopardy.
The two main injuries have been LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward and both of these guys were having excellent seasons and it really will be interesting to watch this team next year even though they still have a small glimmer of hope this year.
That small glimmer of hope comes in the form of a news report about Lamelo, as it appears his wrist has healed up nicely and he will now be available to the team in 7-10 days and that just might be the spark that ignites this Hornets team back to where they were just a month ago.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
The Charlotte Hornets may get LaMelo Ball back this year and that might get them to where they need to be, but they do not have him for this game and based off of what I have seen from this team lately I need to side with the visitors at these odds.
I am a big fan of both Sexton and Garland and think Kevin Love can play enough of a factor on the interior to make a difference and at -105 it is tough to pass up on the Cavs in this spot.
