The Cleveland Cavaliers just got torched by the Celtics last night on them playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help matters. The Los Angeles Lakers remain the hottest team in the league and are finally start to cover numbers. I'm not confident the Cavs can continue to hang with these respectable teams in the league, and this is a rough schedule spot for them. It's Lakers or pass for me.
