The Cavaliers are in the midst of their worst stretch of basketball as they welcome in the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.
Cleveland has dropped 3 in a row after Lebron James sat out the team’s most recent loss to Miami.
As for Portland, they came up just short in a 90-88 loss in Milwaukee on Monday.
Portland Trail Blazers:
A new week, the same old story for Portland.
PG Damien Lillard continues to produce at high levels, but needs some kind of help from his supporting cast. He did grab a little help in Monday’s setback as 4 players scored in double figures. It’s been very rare to have players other than Lillard score in double figures this season.
Portland has played better as of late as they took a 2 game winning streak into Milwaukee, but allowed the game winning bucket with just 5 seconds left to send them to their dismay.
Lillard once again led the team as he put in 23 points. However, the minutes are starting to catch up with him. The star PG has logged 35 minutes in 20 of the 22 games Portland has played this season.
G C.J. McCollum, who was Lillard’s most trusted go to guy earlier this season has shot just 28.7 percent over the past 5 games.
Like Damien Lillard, Lebron James has had his minutes get caught up with him.
Lebron logged 45 minutes in Friday nights loss to New Orleans, which led to him sitting out Saturday’s contest against his former team. The Cavaliers clearly missed his presence as they were routed by the Heat by 15 points, which sent them to their third straight loss.
PF Kevin Love could not step up without Lebron as he finished just 2 of 11 from the field. Cleveland has actually had trouble scoring as of late.
The Cavs are averaging just 93.5 points per game over their last 6 contests.
Kyrie Irving and Iman Shumpert both practiced this week. Irving is expected to to be on the team’s next road trip.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Cavaliers are playing some very unorthodox basketball. Not scoring, turning the ball over, struggling on defense….those are just some of their problems during this skid.
However, a return to their home floor against a fatigued Portland team may be just what they need here.
