Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers suffered their second consecutive loss after starting the season with a three-game winning streak. Their most recent loss was against the Indiana Pacers and they played without Kevin Love and rookie Isaac Okoro. Collin Sexton carried the team’s scoring with 28 points while shooting an impressive 63% from the field. Darius Garland looks like the point guard that they always wanted doing 21 points, five assists, and five triples. Andre Drummond had a double-double but the team needs to solve their forward rotation as Larry Nance can’t fill everything up while Cedi Osman remains inconsistent.
