This game features the defending champion Cavaliers on the road against the Miami Heat..
Cleveland has won 5 of 6 while Miami is 4-1 in their last 5.
Cleveland won the first game of the series by 30 points..
The Cavaliers have a key injury to Kevin Love, but the addition of veteran pieces, should still keep them at the top of the standings once the playoffs start.
The Cavs are coming into this one red hot, as Lebron James faces the team he won two titles with, having secured a 3rd one last year. With Kevin Love going down it has become more apparent that James will be the primary ball distributor for the Cavs.
James posted a triple double in Cleveland’s tough loss to Boston, scoring 28 points while grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists. In the first meeting between the two clubs James had 27, 8, 8 for his stat line.
This should be another dominant performance by Lebron, as the SF position is very weak for the Heat. Two triple-doubles in a row? It could happen in this one.
Kyrie Irving continues hi efficient scoring, as he has shot 50% or better from the floor in the last four games (averaging 27.5 points per game). The matchup against Goran Dragic should be a fun one, as neither guard is known for their defense.
Irving will light up the scoreboard, and a 30 point game isn’t out of the question for the All-Star.
Kyle Korver had a very rough night shooting the ball, which is a rarity. He shot 1-7 from the floor and only finished with 4 points. Expect a bounceback game from Korver who averaged 17 points per game in the previous four.
Miami blew out the Sixers on Wednesday night, winning by 27 points. Surprisingly Goran Dragic had a pedestrian game by his standards. The talented point guard scored just 15 points and had a mere two assists in the Miami win.
The first matchup with Kyrie saw him finish with 15 points, 4 assists, and 4 turnovers. This should be an interesting matchup and I expect Dragic to get 18 points and 6 assists before the game is over.
In limited action against Philadelphia, Hassan Whiteside put up a dominant performance. He scored 15 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and finished with 4 blocks.
Whiteside is one of the more dynamic defensive big men in the league and should have plenty of opportunities to swat some shots against the Cavs. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him reach 6 blocks on the night.
After securing a huge contract with the Heat this past offseason, Tyler Johnson is in the running for Most Improved Player of the year. The third year man put on show against the Sixers, scoring 24 points on 8-12 shooting. If he can get off to a hot start the Heat may be able to get the upset.
