(45-22) Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Los Angeles Lakers (20-49)
The Cavaliers square off against the Lakers in LA.
The Cavs won the first meeting of the season series.
With the Cavs facing off against the Clippers Saturday night, it wouldn’t surprise me to see coach Luen rest his stars.
If Kyrie Irving rests for this game, look for newly acquired Deron Williams to get the start in his place.
Williams had a poor game against the Jazz, going 0-3 from the floor and finishing with 1 point. Facing D’Angelo Russell will be an easier task for the veteran, and he should have a good game.
Lebron James will more than likely rest for this one as well, so Iman Shumpert should get more minutes against the Lakers.
Shumpert is still very good on the defensive end of the floor and I expect him to bother D’Angelo Russell all game.
Tristan Thompson continues to be a defensive presence in the paint and faces off against Julius Randle.
Los Angeles Lakers
In what has clearly been a rebuilding year for the Lakers, there have been some few bright spots on the team.
Trading veteran Lou Williams for a first rounder in the 2017 draft will clearly help the future of the franchise.
D’Angelo Russell has not distributed the ball well in the last 3 games, He has just 7 total assists to go along with 11 turnovers in that span.
More than likely facing the Cavs backups Russell should be able to penetrate the paint and score at will, but Iman Shumpert will be a tough task.
After a 32 point, 8 rebound performance against the Rockets, Julius Randle turned in a dud against the Bucks Friday night scoring just 4 points.
