The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently 33-21, as they have won their last two games.

The San Antonio Spurs, on the other hand, are 20-34, as they’ve lost three of their last four games.

This should be a fun one!

Betting Odds & Lines

The spread for Sunday night is set at CLE -7. The over/under is sitting at 219 points. 

Caris LeVert Set to Make Cavs Debut

Caris LeVert was an excellent get for the Cavs, as he is a three level scorer that can create his own shot in the mid-range or behind the arc and use his craftiness and creativity around the rim to get some buckets.

LeVert will come in and replace a lot of the production that has been lost by both Collin Sexton and Ricky Rubio, as he can provide a playmaking presence in addition to his all-around abilities to score the basketball.

The beauty of the Cavs acquiring LeVert is that LeVert is a Pickerington, Ohio native and grew up a fan of the team, and given all he’s been through over the past year and change, from getting traded by the Brooklyn Nets and having to have a cancerous tumor removed, it’s good to see him thriving, and in a situation he’s comfortable in.

Kevin Love Stepping Up

Kevin Love is stepping up for the Cavs, averaging 20.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in his last four games.

Love is getting it done as a floor spacing big by knocking down his 3-pointers and mid-range jumpers. Having Love’s shooting and veteran presence out there has made the Cavs a better all-around team, which is a huge reason why the Cavs are among the best teams in the Eastern Conference this season.

Love put up nine points in the fourth quarter alone in the Cavs’ last win over the Pacers, which helped them hold onto the victory.

Dejounte Murray on Fire

Dejounte Murray was recently named an All-Star, and he is justifying the decision by the league to name him an All-Star, as he is averaging 21.8 points on nearly 48 percent shooting to go along with 10.2 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game over his last ten games.

The Spurs aren’t the same good team we’ve been accustomed to seeing for the greater part of the last 25 years, but they’re still capable of finding diamonds in the rough, which is exactly what they found here.

Cavs Win

The Cavs should be able to continue their winning ways, as they’re going up against one of the worst teams in the league this season.

However, Darius Garland is questionab le with a back injury for this one, as he has missed his last four games.

With LeVert making his debut and his recent stretch of good performances, that should give the Cavs the boost they need with or without Garland.

We should be in for an exciting match, but expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to win and cover the spread.
