Since the news of the Cavs’ locker room and management issues came out, they have gone undefeated in their last two games. They won against Detroit in overtime and limited the Nuggets to just 103 points for the win. The Cavs could get lucky again since LeBron James and Anthony Davis are reportedly to skip this game. Tristan Thompson has been playing great and he followed up his scoring career-high with 18 points and 13 rebounds against Nikola Jokic. Kevin Love looked like the T-Wolves version bringing in 19 points and 15 rebounds. Cedi Osman also had a double-double with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland having their numbers as well.

The Lakers chemistry has been clicking again and they have been on a roll. Even without Anthony Davis, the team has survived and Dwight Howard has been guaranteed with his contract for the entire year. This Lakers team was under the microscope when they lost four straight games but all of those talks have been brushed aside. Alex Caruso has been the fan-favorite and has gotten the MVP chants in Los Angeles. The Lakers are coming in this game not just missing Davis and James but Rajon Rondo and Danny Green will also be out. This is a chance for Kyle Kuzma to come out and prove that he is the clear third guy on the Lakers’ big 3 this season.
Players to Watch: K. Kuzma PF 29 GP 2 GS 23.7 MIN 12.4 PTS 0.6 OR 3.1 DR 3.7 REB 0.9 AST 0.3 STL 0.4 BLK 1.5 TO 1.8 PF 0.6 AST/TO 11.58 PER
