The Cleveland Cavaliers have dropped in the NBA Eastern Conference standings but help is back with Darius Garland being healthy once again. This team looks to get back on their winning rhythm and Garland and the losing skid proves how big the point guard is on stabilizing the team’s offense. Jarrett Allen is coming off from a rewarding stint becoming an NBA All-Star for the first time and his defense against Joel Embiid will be a key to their victory over the Sixers. Rookie Evan Mobley should also step up to space up the floor and keep the defense honest against them.
