The Cleveland Cavaliers look to win their seventh straight game. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 102.1 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 92.9 points on 42.8 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 24.4 points and 6.4 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 17 points and 12.6 rebounds. Mo Williams is dishing 5.4 assists and Tristan Thompson is grabbing 10 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are still finding ways to win despite a lot of injuries, and they’ve lost just three regular season home games since January. The Cavs are averaging 48.1 rebounds per game, which is four more than league average. J.R. Smith is questionable with a knee injury.
The Jazz are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cavaliers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Northwest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jazz are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Cleveland and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Cavs have had trouble with consistency due to injuries and moving parts. Meanwhile, the Jazz are the best defensive team in the league. I'll take my chances here with Utah and the free points.
