Cleveland remains one of the most interesting teams in the league. There is no doubting LeBron but how good can this team be in a game where he is not otherworldly? Will they burn him out down the stretch?
The Heat look locked into the lower half of the Eastern Conference standings meaning a playoff date with the Cavs could be in order. If so this could be a confidence booster.
Per the intro every Cleveland game is heavily scrutinized to see just what we can learn about the Cavs and their chances in the playoffs. That sort of makes them risky to back in a lot of situations.
LeBron James is an indestructible force. The most recent case in point is how he carved up the Raptors last week with 35 points 17 assists and 0 turnovers. Nobody had ever done that before.
With LeBron as the constant the x factor for the Cavs is Kevin Love. At his best he is a second All-Star but there are so many times throughout the game it is like he isn’t even on the floor.
Cleveland has been getting a little healthier of late but keep an eye on the injury reports. Over the last few they have had major swings in this department.
This game will be a test due to the contrast in styles of both teams. On the road it is generally harder to set the pace you want.
The Heat return home for this one. They have been up and down of late but there is still lots to play for and if they are going to make any sort of move it is going to be during this home stand. This is the toughest game they should have on this stretch.
Hassan Whiteside is still dealing with a hip injury so check the notes to see if he plays. He is an interesting player in games like this because his overall effectiveness is contingent on how the pace of the game goes. Cleveland is great at making true centers seem valueless against them.
James Johnson is one of the few players in the league with the size and athleticism to really guard LeBron effectively. He is tough too so he is not going to succumb to LeBron’s playfulness. The best thing he can do might be forcing the King to defend. His offense can be spotty though.
