Cleveland was embarrassed and frustrated on national TV Monday night as the Golden State Warriors absolutely took it to them in Cleveland.
The Cavaliers will look to regroup and find a way to get back on track when they take on one of the worst in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets, on Wednesday.
Brooklyn has dropped 3 in a row now after falling to Toronto, in Canada, on Monday.
The Cavaliers and Warriors gave the fans everything they wanted on Christmas Day inside Oracle Arena. On Monday night the two teams met again on TNT with the entire country watching.
Cleveland was absolutely obliterated and embarrassed by 34 points. JR Smith was tossed and Lebron James got a technical foul as Cleveland was incredibly frustrated all night long.
After the media really let them have it after the game in the locker room, the Cavaliers gave some frustrating comments saying they know they need to step it up.
Cleveland has been known this season for not showing up during big games as they’ve now lost to Golden State twice, the Spurs once, Miami once, and Chicago once.
The Cavaliers struggled early on in the season against Brooklyn at home, but eventually went on for a 2 point win.
The Nets have just 2 wins in the month of January and have now dropped 3 straight after falling to Portland, Atlanta, and now Toronto on Monday.
Brooklyn has lost their last 3 all by double digits and have quite the daunting road ahead of them. After Cleveland comes to town, the Nets will deal with Oklahoma City, Miami, and Dallas later on this month.
They’ll at least get Cleveland, Oklahoma City, and Miami all at home, but that hasn’t necessarily been a winning place for them. Brooklyn is just 7-15 SU at home this season and 9-13 ATS in those 22 games.
Brooklyn shot just 40.7% in the previous meeting with Cleveland, led by Brook Lopez who put in 22 points and 9 rebounds. After the Nets held a 6 point lead at the half, Cleveland erased that in the 3rd quarter and eventually had Lebron James hit a runner with just seconds to go to secure the win.

Free NBA Prediction:
This is quite the interesting spot here for bettors.
Cleveland will either come out extremely frustrated and just absolutely take it to the Nets, or come out extremely flat and continue to be frustrated.
Had this been a little tougher opponent, that 2nd option probably would have been accurate. However, Cleveland will still certainly try to force shots here. Expect Brooklyn to keep this one close throughout as long as they don’t dig themselves an early hole.
