Top teams from the East and West collide in this one, this time on Cleveland’s turf. Now healthy the Cavs are looking for a better result.
Cleveland is going through a difficult stretch playing San Antonio and Golden State in the same week. This is a chance to show something.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors had a surprise loss at Denver but they are still the top team in the league. Obviously this is a rematch of the Finals as well as a Christmas Day victory by the Warriors. These teams look like they are on a collision course once again, which I don’t think will disappoint at all.
It might seem early but the Warriors are already managing their key players, resting Draymond Green last week. It seems unlikely that they are going to do that in a big national TV game like this one but you never know. Assuming they are at full strength you have to like their chances on the road. They might even be the underdog by the time the line finds its level.
The Cavs are at full strength and seem ready to lay waste to the rest of the Eastern Conference over the course of the second half. However, if games against the like of the Spurs and Warriors this season are an indicator they are not quite where they want to be.
Those losses to San Antonio and Golden State were on the road though and this team has lost only once at home this season. They also have the league’s second best defense giving up just 95 ppg.
When they need a bucket they can count on LeBron James of course. He is having another MVP type season and just might win back the award from Steph Curry if he can come up big in games like these.
With every game Kyrie Irving is looking more and more like the explosive scorer we are familiar with but the question still remains just how well that meshes with LeBron’s talents when all the chips are down. I am just not sure.
