Bet Now on this Game


The betting odds for this game are highly anticipated, with both teams showing strong performances this season. Although specific odds are yet to be determined, analyzing each team’s recent trends and performances can provide insights into potential betting strategies.

Donovan Mitchell (SG) vs. Kevin Durant (PF)

Donovan Mitchell is unarguably the powerhouse for the Cavaliers team this season, thanks to his 27.1 point per game average during 2017 regular season encounters. His forward combination, particularly in 6.1 assists and stealing 1.8 per game, gives him the ability to contribute anywhere on the court and thus makes him a critical asset for the team. He may fall short in terms of turnover ratio against a towering defense of the Suns with the turnover rate of 2.8 per game.

However, Kevin Durant of the Phoenix Suns boosts the figures by averaging 27.6 points a game in the 67 starting games. Durant is not just a three point shooter to the Suns organization; by getting 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game, he proves that he is a versatile player. Since his fast-paced play might be an advantage for the Cavaliers who play an aggressive defense, it could be their weakness.

During the throws of Mitchell and Durant on the basketball court is not only a fate of the supremacy of scoring but also the application of tactics. The involvement of both players in different aspects of play will be important, but their defense directed aggression towards each other will have a significant influence on the game’s outcome too.

Cavaliers’ Cohesion and Efficiency

The Cavaliers has shown good team work throughout the current season, i.e. 112.7 points in average per game. This is due to the fact that the team shoots accurately, as evidenced by the league-wide shooting average of 47.9%, as well as the effective ball movement across the team that averages 28 assists per game. However, they risk losing the ball on a regular occasion (2.6 per game) and this can slow their offensive flow against Suns’ defense.

Suns’ Offensive Firepower

The Phoenix Suns are more offensive and they have averaged 116.7 points per game with a better field goal of 49.5%. The balanced offence of the Warriors with both skilled interior and perimeter scoring is the kind of game plan that the Cavaliers defense will have to cope up with. The Suns’ ability to draw fouls and hence benefit from a high free throw conversion (80% FT percentage) could be worth something in case of a close game.
