The Cleveland Cavaliers look for another victory after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.5 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 97.5 points on 43.8 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 25.7 points and 6.8 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 19.5 points and 11.8 rebounds. Mo Williams is dishing 5.1 assists and Tristan Thompson is grabbing 10.1 rebounds.

The Cavs are coming off a Friday victory over the Hornets in which they shot 42 percent from the field and had 16 turnovers. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 10 straight regular season home games.
The Nets are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Eastern Conference and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic. The Nets are 18-7 ATS in the last 25 meetings in Cleveland.
The Nets seem to play their best against top tier comp, as their only wins this season came against teams that played in last year's conference championship. When you add in the fact the Nets are well rested and playing a Cavs team that just played last night, I like the value of the points here.
