The Cleveland Cavaliers look to keep the ball rolling with a fifth straight victory. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 101.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 90.2 points on 40.1 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 22.2 points and 5.6 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds. Mo Williams is dishing 4.4 assists and Tristan Thompson is grabbing 10.2 rebounds.

The 76ers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Central and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Cavaliers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Atlantic and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Friday games. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
The 76ers just hung with the Cavs a couple of days ago, losing by seven points. The Cavs also haven't been known to blow teams out with a banged up roster, as we just saw with the Knicks game. This could be your rare Cleveland blowout, but I'll take my chances with the oodles of points.
