Cleveland Cavaliers Preview

The Cavs were recently stunned in a 128-120 performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, despite scoring more points in the second half than the Thunder. They had no answer for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who dropped 43 points for the Thunder.

Their recent performances have set them back a bit, as they are third in the Central Division and 11th in the East. They are potentially going to be without a few players for a game time decision, most notably Isaac Okoro (9.5 PPG, 5.0 REB). Donovan Mitchell leads with 30.7 points per game.

They have been averaging 108.6 points per game, which puts them at 25th in the league. Their efficiency with the ball ranks 24th with a rating of 108.8. In other words, they do not score well or take care of the ball.

On defense, they do a slightly better job to keep games interesting. They allow teams to average 112.1 points per game at 14th in the league and are 15th in efficiency on defense at a rating of 112.3.

Golden State Warriors Betting Preview

The Warriors nearly had an opportunity to win in their recent game against the Denver Nuggets, which ended 108-105. Klay Thompson failed to get a potential game-tying shot off as time expired, leading to the Nuggets prevailing.

They are continuing to hover at the top spot in the Pacific Division and have slid back to fourth in the West. Steph Curry leads with 30.0 points per game and they could potentially be without Draymond Green (10.3 PPG, 6.7 AST), who is a game time decision.

They are putting up 114.9 points per game (12th) and are efficient with a rating of 116.3 (7th). This bodes well for their chances at success.

Defensively they are also appealing, as they allow 110.1 points per game (10th) and have a rating of efficiency at 111.5 (14th). If they are doing well on both ends of the floor, they are hard to beat.
