The Cleveland Cavaliers are fresh off a big win against the Philadelphia 76ers for only their third victory of the season. The Cavs will now go up against another tough match-up in the Houston Rockets and will be doing so on the second night of a back to back. The last time Cleveland played on the second night of a back to back, things got, well, let’s just say ugly. The Cavaliers were pummeled by a less than enthusiastic Wizards team and will be looking to avoid a similar fate against the Rockets.
Houston has had a bit of a rough season themselves with James Harden missing the first portion of the year. However, before losing to the Pistons just last night, they were on a small hot streak with five straight wins. Hopefully their tired legs will be more evident than Cleveland’s own. They will need all the help they can get going against one of the tough Western Conference teams. It would be nice to log two wins in a row but they will have to avoid sloppy turnovers to have a chance at all in this one. That hasn’t been an easy task for Cleveland this season and gets worse when tired. Here’s to hoping for another exciting game. As always, Go Cavs!
