A QUICK STOP AT HOME

Sandwiched between a four-game and three-game road trip, the Cavs come home for an April Fool's Day game against the East-leading Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers sit atop the Eastern Conference at 32-15, but the Wine & Gold are 2-0 against Philly this season.

LAST TIME OUT

Shorthanded and in the final game of a west coast swing, the Cavs took one on the chin on Monday in Utah against the NBA-best Jazz. Without a few key rotation pieces, the Cavs played just nine guys. Isaiah Hartenstein made his Cavs debut (and first start in the process), recording a line of five points, 14 boards, and seven assists. Collin Sexton paced the Cavs in scoring with 20.
