The Cavaliers are traveling to Houston to face the Rockets in a matchup of two of the league’s best teams.
Cleveland has lost 3 of their last 4 games while Houston is 2-2 in their last 4.
The Cavaliers won the first meeting by 8 points back in November.
Without Kevin Love in the lineup the Cavs look like a completely different team, but are still the favorite to win the East.
Lebron James continues to put up MVP caliber numbers, and should be in the discussion as the season comes to a close.
Expect James to keep his hot hand up, as he has scored at least 28 points and grabbed at least 13 rebounds in the last four games.
Kyrie Irving has also been very good shooting the ball, and put up 27 in the win against Detroit the other night. The first meeting saw Irving score 32 points, and a 30 point performance isn’t out the question in this one.
With Kevin Love out it falls on JR Smith to be the third option for the Cavs, and he struggled against Detroit going just 1-9 from the floor. If he has a poor shooting night against Houston the Cavs will lose ugly.
The first meeting saw James Harden drop 41 points and dish out 15 assists against the Cavs. Can we expect a repeat performance?
Harden struggled in the Rockets loss to Chicago, but still put up 13 assists and another excellent night should be automatic for the possible league MVP.
Lou Williams hasn’t shot the ball well in the last 5 Houston games, even though he did score 18 against the Bulls. He will need to get out of the slump for Houston to win this game.
This is a matchup of the 2nd and 3rd highest scoring teams in the league, so don’t expect a defensive showcase. Houston has given up 100 or more points in 9 straight games and I think this will be number 10.
