Cleveland returns home after a thrilling 106-104 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday. Houston defeated the Milwaukee Bucks in their last contest.
Kyrie Irving and C.J. Miles will likely have their hands full with Jeremy Lin and James Harden leading the Houston backcourt. Harden is averaging 26.3 points per game while Lin is dishing an average of 6.4 assists.
The Cavaliers will also need a strong defensive effort if they hope to come away with a win. Lin and Harden are some the best in running the pick-and-roll. This particular offensive set not only opens shots for themselves if executed properly but also opens up shots for their teammates.
The first 10,000 fans entering the building will also receive a Cavaliers scarf courtesy of the Ohio Lottery.
