Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love is fouled by Hornets' Kelly Oubre Jr.

The Cleveland Cavaliers (8-6) are coming off a blowout loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, as they’ve now dropped five straight games after a scorching hot start to begin the season.

The Charlotte Hornets (4-12) just look helpless out there, as they’ve lost nine of their last ten games.

It’s been a struggle for the Cavs recently, as they’ve been struggling to win games despite getting Darius Garland back in action and not having a myriad of injuries to deal with.

The Cavs also have a ton of depth, but they’re all just struggling to find their niche as a collective group.

Worry not, though, Cavs fans. The team still got off to an 8-1 start and has all the makings to be a contender in the Eastern Conference.Donovan Mitchell is one of the best young scorers this league has to offer, and his presence alone will make the Cavs a dangerous offense.

Both Mitchell and Garland can succeed with or without the ball in their hands, but it’s just about both of them finding their way as a duo.

Jarrett Allen also will continue to be one of the best rim protecting bigs in the league and a reliable threat to finish at the rim.

Evan Mobley is hitting a bit of a sophomore wall, but the talent and potential are still undeniable. Just a year ago, Cavs fans claimed that he’s the best rookie they’ve had since LeBron James, intentionally leaving Kyrie Irving’s name out of the mix.

There’s not a whole lot to love about the Hornets right now, as they just don’t have a roster that is well-rounded enough to compete with others across the league.

LaMelo Ball just made his return and is looking sharp, as he will continue to be an excellent scorer and playmaker in this league.

Terry Rozier is also stepping in nicely with his scoring and playmaking as well, as he can splash home threes with ease.

Kelly Oubre has emerged as a leading scorer for his team, as he’s averaging over 18 points per game.

The Hornets still have a ton of good scorers and athletic players that they can pose a legitimate threat to the Cavs, but their execution will also have to be on point.


The Cavs are favored by -9.5 points in this one, which is fairly high despite the difference in team success this season.

The Cavs are one of the better teams in the league this season but have dropped five straight games.

While there’s not a whole lot of winning going on in Charlotte either, they at least have the capability of making games competitive, especially now that LaMelo is back.

We should be in for an exciting one; expect the Hornets to cover in this game.
