Portland goes into Cleveland looking for a signature win on their young season. Cleveland hopes to continue on their early season success, who only have one lost when LeBron is in the lineup.
The match-up to watch is the point guard battle. Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are two of the best point guards in the league and should give each-other a good test.
The Cavs are 2-1 in the last 3 games against the Trail Blazers.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland will be facing up against the Cavaliers on the second end of a back to back facing the Knicks on Tuesday night.
In their last four games, not including the Knicks game, the Blazers are 1-3.
They are having problems on the defensive end giving up an average of 120.25 points per game. Although they have still been successful on the offensive end it’s hard to win games giving up that many points.
Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum will need huge games if they want a chance to beat the Cavs on their home floor.
Lillard is averaging 28 points per game, well McCollum is adding 22.9.
Some of the Blazers big men will also need to step up big to pull off the upset. They have been a disappointment early in the season and they will need to play big to match up against the likes of Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.
The Cavaliers have once again shown early in the season they are the team to beat in the Eastern Conference with LeBron James in the lineup.
They have only lost one game this season when James was playing and that was only by 4 points to the Atlanta Hawks. Early on this season the big three has looked even better than they did during last years championship run.
Some have argued that this team is actually better than last year’s championship team.
The big three of James, Love, and Irving score 67.5 points of the teams 108.6 points per game. The one thing that the Cavs have that Portland doesn’t is big men.
Tristan Thompson is a force inside and grabs 10.3 rebounds per game well only playing 28 minutes a game.
The Cavs bench is a much stronger than the Blazers, and they can bring the likes of Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson, and Channing Frye who could be starters on most other teams.
The other big advantage that Cleveland has is this game is being played at home.
They average 113 points a game well playing at home.
