A lot has changed in the few short weeks since Oklahoma laid a 148-124 embarrassing beat down on Cleveland on their own court. The Cavs have swapped out six old, tired, or useless legs for four brand new shiny pieces of what they hope is an NBA Finals roster. With the additions of Rodney Hood, George Hill, Larry Nance Jr., and Jordan Clarkson the mood has drastically shifted in The Land. Oh, and the Cavs won’t be forced to put a hobbled, overly proud Isaiah Thomas on the court.
LeBron is back to looking like he enjoys being the best basketball player on the planet and its lead to three straight wins, including possibly one of the best wins of the season against the Boston Celtics. Tonight should be a much better measuring stick for where the Cavaliers and their new guys are currently as the Thunder aren’t slumping and, as stated earlier, are fresh off of pummeling Cleveland in their last match-up. Cedi is still in the starting lineup and everyone else is available for this match-up. Hopefully the defense is much improved and Cleveland can get an exciting road win against a tough team. Go Cavs!
