PROBABLE STARTERS



CLEVELAND CAVALIERS’


CHARLOTTE BOBCATS’ BENCH


CLEVELAND CAVALIERS’ NOTES

This is a game Cleveland should win, thus they need to avoid a letdown. Their emotions were running high after beating the Heat and that same momentum needs to continue as Cleveland strives to secure the homecourt.

Work the LeBron to Z inside-outside connection to perfection. Get Zydrunas some touches early because if Zydrunas scores some baskets early, he’ll usually be solid the rest of the game. If Marshall struggles, Coach Brown needs to let Varejao take his minutes. LeBron and Anderson have good chemistry together.

CHARLOTTE BOBCATS’ NOTES

If Cleveland plays around and doesn’t play to their potential, the Bobcats need to get out to an early lead. Stretch that lead out as far as possible before the Cavs begin to regroup for their inevitable charge. Let Felton go wild and pick up where he left off in the last meeting between the teams.

Get Cleveland out of their comfort zone. Let the game take an inconsistent turn and in the midst of the chaos, get Cleveland out of their strong halfcourt game of pounding and grinding. Charlotte would rather have Cleveland fail to exploit their advantage in the paint and not pick on that weakness over and over again.

OVERVIEW

The Bobcats will play with nothing to lose, so the pressure is on Cleveland to avoid the upset. If Cleveland can win a road game on the second night of a back-to-back, their momentum will continue and carry over into the next game.

Need 7 more wins to get to 50 and Lebron a clear shot at the MVP. We've pretty much locked up homecourt

Cleveland leads 12-8 with 7:06 remaining in the opening quarter. There has been plenty of up-and-down moments thus far and it's been pretty entertaining.

LeBron with back-to-back drives. I love it when he plays inside.

The first quarter was very entertaining and Cleveland leads by five (28-23).

Gooden with a first quarter again: not sure what he needs to take more minutes away from Marshall

Flip threw a sweet lob to James there. Awesome! Highlight reel material.

Yeah that one was phenomenal. LeBron is well on his way to another 40 pt triple double with 19/3/4. We'll see if he gets enough minutes to complete it.

I like the fact Varejao has been getting more action in recent games. We usually play better with him in the game.

Very strange game right now from an offensive perspective: Literally all but 2 of our points have come from our frontcourt.

Lebron on pace for another 40 point game on a ridiculous FG%
