IT'S THE CAVS & THE JAZZ IN CLEVELAND

On the second night of a back-to-back, the Cavaliers welcome the Utah Jazz to town for these two teams' first matchup against each other in the 2020-21 season.

LAST TIME OUT

Cleveland dropped a tough one against a Memphis Grizzlies squad they played just four days before. Memphis hit some big shots - including some three-pointers - down the stretch to pull away from the Cavaliers late in the game. Andre Drummond recorded (you guessed it), another double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Damyean Dotson, Cedi Osman, Isaac Okoro, and Larry Nance Jr. all recorded double-digit scoring outings.
