WE'RE BACK

After a tough road trip, the Cavs were supposed to come home, play the Spurs on Wednesday, and have a three day break. That break was extended from three days off to almost a whole week after the Spurs had positive COVID cases. Then, the NBA scheduled a Friday game with the Denver Nuggets after their game during the week was postponed due to the same reason.

LAST TIME OUT

It seems like it has been a while since Cavaliers basketball, based on the recent schedule, anyway. The Wine & Gold's last game was on Monday night in Golden State, where they fell to the Warriors. Cleveland had five guys in double digits, but that was not enough to hold off the Warriors' second half flurry.
