The Cleveland Cavaliers are in first place heading into this game against the fifth place Atlanta Hawks who are 7.5 games behind in the Eastern Conference of the NBA. The Cavs have a record of 41-18 and are looking to bounce back with a win on the road after dropping their last game to the Boston Celtics, 103-99. Team leader LeBron James, 32, will again look to carry the load for his team. The MVP has been averaging 25, 9 and 8 on the season.
The 34-26 Atlanta Hawks are looking to make a splash with a big win in front of their home fans. Led by NBA veteran Dwight Howard, 31, the Hawks are in the middle of the East with their eyes on securing a playoff spot. A win against the mighty Cavs would carry them along way as they head into the stretch.
The Hawks are looking to extend their winning streak to 3 after getting big wins against the Dallas Mavericks and a big 114-98 win against the Celtics in Boston. Atlanta has success when they crash the boards winning 74% of games where they perform better on the glass than their opponents. If Atlanta wants to keep their streak alive against the Cavs, Dwight and the boys will need to pound the boards and work hard on defense.
