Happy Christmas Eve Eve, Cavs fans. If you watched the Browns dismantle the Bengals, you’re probably feeling pretty good, and now you get a heaping helping of Cavalier basketball. For the Cavs, Rodney Hood is out with a sore achilles while David Nwaba is questionable.
For the Bulls, Bobby Portis, Zach Lavine, while there’s no word on Jabari Parker who’s missed the last four games with illness and being crapy.
The loser of this game will have the worst record in the league, and be in the lead for the Zion Williamson tank battle. Truth be told, these young Cavs could use a win, and with Lauri Markennan back and Lavine and Parker sitting, this team is no pushover. Let’s hope Sexton, Cedi, and Co. can take a step forward and build some confidence.
