NBA Match Preview -- Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors

 

 

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Thursday in NBA action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

 

 

Cleveland Cavaliers

With a two-game losing slide building up, the Cavaliers will have more problems to deal with going forward. A large number of players have been sidelined, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers severely shorthanded early in the season. One of the biggest issues is in their big-man rotation. Last night, Cleveland trailed by 21 points at halftime during a 109-99 road loss against Brooklyn. Cleveland G Ricky Rubio tallied a team-high 25 points on 8-for-17 shooting and dished out five assists. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 102.7 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 101.1 points on 44.2 percent shooting.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors will head into this game with some serious momentum. They are the owners of a league-best 12-2 record so far and have won eight of their last nine games and lead the league in defensive efficiency. On Tuesday, Golden State outscored Brooklyn by 18 points during the third quarter of a 117-99 road triumph. All-Star G Steph Curry needed just 29 minutes of action to score a game-high 37 points on 12-for-19 from the field. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.2 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 101.6 points on 42.3 percent shooting.

 

 

Prediction

The absence of a solid big man on the roster will cause a number of issues to Cleveland Cavaliers. With the potential to create a number of second-chance opportunities, the Golden State Warriors offense could overwhelm the Cleveland Cavaliers.

 

Tips: Golden State Warriors -8
