The Cavaliers will travel the short distance between Cleveland and Philadelphia to face the Seventy Sixers at The Wells Fargo Center at 7:00ET tonight. The game can be seen as part of NBA TV’s Fan Night.
The Cavs enter this contest on a three game losing streak. Turnovers have plagued this team all season, averaging 18.3 per game. That was in evidence, once again, as they committed 22 in their 108-83 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. Outstanding rookie Kyrie Irving led Cleveland in scoring with 16 points and 4 assists. Omri Casspi pitched in 14 of his own. It was an end to end blowout with the Cavaliers trailing by as many as 29 points and never getting closer than 15 in the second half. Start your Basketball Betting action on Cleveland Cavs vs. Philadelphia 76ers game.
Things could have gotten even worse, if that’s possible, when Antawn Jamison went down with a bruise on his leg and ankle. Jamison is averaging 18 points per game and 6.5 rebounds for Cleveland and does expect to play tonight. That can only help the Cavs cause, as he scored 20 points the last time these two teams met, albeit, in a 99-84 loss by his team at home. Cleveland is 17-29 this year and as they say, just playing for pride. They are 1-6 in their last seven and 4-12 in the the past sixteen.
Philadelphia has much more than their pride at stake, as they are in a battle with Boston for the Atlantic Division lead. After a nice 18-7 beginning to the season and as much as a four game lead in the division, Doug Collins crew has managed only a 9-15 record since. They should get a boost tonight if Andre Igoudala can return from a bout of tendinitis. He missed Sundays 93-76 loss to San Antonio. Uncharacteristicly, the Sixers turned the ball over twenty one times against the Spurs. Check the Sportsbook Odds for Cleveland Cavs vs. Philadelphia 76ers game
Watch for Philadelphia rookie Jrue Holiday’s matchup with Irving. He performed well the last times these teams met, putting in 20 points while Irving sat that one out due to a concussion.
