The big question coming into all the remaining 4 game is just how bad they are going to be? The Cavs have 19 wins on the season whereas New York has 15 but Phoenix 18. It would be very beneficiial for Cleveland to lose here on out to improve their draft lottery chances.
Lose is exactly what the Cavs have done in their last six games. Cleveland isn’t getting thoroughly blown out all the time however – at least in most games. The Cavs have dropped a 2 point game to the Clippers, a 10 point deficit to Boston, a 6 point beat by San Antonio, and fell by 9 to the Suns over their current run.
Of course what makes the Cavaliers such a tough team to wager on Thursday is the fact they fell by 24 to the Clippers and 22 to the Bucks over their 6 game losing streak. Are the Kings -9.5 points better than Cleveland Thursday even with nothing to play for?
The Cavs do have some capable talent to make a run in this one. They might be without Kevin Love however who is questionable with a shoulder injury. Jordan Clarkson has scored 20+ in 4 of 7 off the bench though. Collin Sexton is also winding down his rookie season nicely with four straight 21+ point games.
Cleveland also gets a boost up front as Tristan Thompson has been back the last two weeks as has Larry Nance, Jr. Sacramento doesn’t rely on their front court a whole lot, but Cleveland having their ‘bigs’ is a boost.
Then again can the Cleveland offense hang in an up pace game that the Kings like to play? The Cavs have been held to under 110 points in 5 of 7 games. The O/U for this tilt is set at 228.5 which would suggest some points are going to be scored by somebody.
The Kings though returning home from a long road swing would be good for what ails them but they were way off as the Rockets got a 130-105 win at the Golden 1 Center on Tuesday.
Did Sacramento just suffer the effects of being jet lagged after a 5 game road trip over a 7 day stretch? Only time will tell as Cleveland comes to town Thursday. When they are clicking, the Kings are a commendable 23-16 on their own court this year.
What is Sacramento’s motivation this late in the year after another failed postseason attempt? A .500 record would be a good benchmark to hit on the season as the Kings sit at 38-40 on the year. A win vs. Cleveland is a must for that as a winnable game with New Orleans remains, but so do tilts with Utah and Portland.
The Cavs will need to get their back court going if they want to cover the nearly double digit spread. Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox combined for just 29 points in the loss vs. Houston. Fox has just 9 and 12 points in his last two.
Marvin Bagley III is back to getting some quality minutes which does help Sacramento backers in this one. Bagley went for 19 and 8 on Tuesday even as he was fighting an illness vs. Houston.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Cavs will have had 2 nights off before their tilt in Sacramento which is good for a team on their fourth straight road game. The Rockets had a 16 point lead at the half vs. the Kings on Tuesday and scored 39 in the 4th showing that Sacramento is very disinterested right now.

The Cavs should be able to keep it real close.
