The drama is quite real in Cleveland. The Cavaliers look to rebound from a tough home loss on Monday as they head out west to take on the Kings here on Wednesday
Sacramento continues to linger in the West for that 8th spot, but the gap is widening rather quickly, which makes homes almost must wins, despite the competition.
The Cavaliers have had a lot of drama center around them with rumors flying about the happiness of players. The loss on Monday to the Grizzlies really didn’t help out any causes.
Lebron James and Kyrie Irving continued to fire out questionable tweets throughout the week, which raised many eyebrows. Then on Monday the team looked completely out of sync in a home upset loss to Memphis, a team that was very shorthanded.
The Cavaliers now get set for a 4 game road trip and things are getting dicey in the East with the Raptors right on their heels for the 1 seed.
Cleveland committed 25 turnovers in the loss, with 7 of them coming from Irving. It was evident this Cavs team has been very aware of the rumors and it may be affecting their game. Regardless, this 4 game west coast trip has a lot of weight on it as the Cavaliers cannot lose focus so far away from home.
The Kings have lingered around in the West, but time is running out for them.
After falling back 5.5 games back of 8th, home games are so important for this team. Protecting their house and stealing games on the road is almost a must now going forward.
It also falls on DeMarcus Cousins and how he steps up. Cousins has been the leader of this team throughout the season and their play really depends on how dominant he is in the paint.
Cousins was first to call out the Kings turnover issues against New Orleans that led to them blowing a 15 point lead. Things like that, especially now, can really put a team out of a playoff race.
