Game Summary

Cleveland’s final two games of the 2015-16 regular season will take place at Quicken Loans Arena beginning with Monday's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks. Tipoff from The Q is at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Including last year’s postseason, the Cavaliers (56-24) have won six straight contests against the Hawks, as well as the first two meetings this season.

The Wine and Gold have scored at least 100 points in 12 of their last 13 games. Since January 25th, the Cavs rank 6th in the NBA in ppg (107.8).

Cleveland has not lost a game this season when scoring 110 points or more (26-0). They are one of only two teams in the NBA this season to post an undefeated recording when notching at least 110 points (San Antonio, 22-0).

The Cavs made a franchise-record tying 19 three-pointers against Chicago on Saturday and have now hit double-digit threes in 17 of the last 18 games. Since March 9, the Cavs have connected on the 2nd-most three-pointers in the NBA (238) and on the season, the team has drained a Cavaliers-record 862 triples.

Cleveland will look to keep their offensive momentum rolling against a Hawks squad fighting for seeding in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff standings.

Atlanta (48-32) currently sits as the third seed in the Conference, one game ahead of the Boston Celtics and a game and a half in front of their Southeast Division rivals, the Miami Heat.

The Hawks rallied from 12 points down in the second half to post a 118-107 win over Boston in their most recent game on Saturday, the 13th time this season the team has come back from a double-digit deficit.

Atlanta is led by their All-Star forward Paul Millsap who comes into tonight's game averaging team-highs of 17.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.
