WALKING IN MEMPHIS

In the second night of a back-to-back, the Cavs will travel to Tennessee to play the Memphis Grizzlies. Both squads will look to get back on the winning side of the ledger on Thursday.

LAST TIME OUT

Cleveland fell to Orlando for the second game in a row. The Wine & Gold led for much of the first quarter-and-a-half, but the Magic proved to be too much in the second half. Collin Sexton extended his 20-point game streak to eight and Andre Drummond did the same with yet another double-double.
