Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert brung an NBA title to Northeast Ohio, but now he’s finding out the impact Akron native LeBron James had on the organization. Last season All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving said he no longer wanted to play with LeBron and Gilbert sent him to Boston as a decision he wishes he regrets. However, they should finish with the worst record in the NBA which would make them the favorites for the first overall pick in the 2019 draft.
Larry Drew takes over for Tyronn Lue who was fired on October 28th and insists he’ll turn rookie point guard Collin Sexton (12.9) ppg into an All-Star.
Cleveland averages (103.4) ppg as a team which is 28th in the NBA but with leading scorer and rebounder Kevin Love out until December with a foot injury someone needs to take the lead. Tristan Thompson (10.8) rebounds per game will do his part on the glass for a team that ranks 19th league-wide grabbing (44.3) rebounds per game. The backcourt of George Hill (12.6) ppg and Jordan Clarkson along with Rodney Hood are all capable scorers, but Sexton is the future.
The Cavaliers are giving up (111.8) ppg to the opposition which is 19th league-wide. Cleveland ranks last in the NBA in field goal percentage by opponents as they allow (48.7%) shooting. Leadership is missing on a team that is now searching for an identity after the best player in the world took his talent to Los Angeles.
Since Drew has taken over, they’re starting to play more team ball instead of isolation. An emphasis on defense will get the Cavalier their first road win of the season.
Bovada.Lv list the Cleveland Cavaliers win total at 30′ for 2018-19.
With all the talk in the Eastern Conference surrounding Boston, Toronto, Milwaukee, and Indiana this Sports Handicapper believes the Detroit Piston could be the team which could reign supreme in June. Afterall Casey has previous Eastern Conference coaching experience when it, and they’ve got Center Andre Drummond (16.2) rgp who leads the 4th ranked rebounding team in the NBA Power Forward Blake Griffin is equally effective on the glass and also scores a team-high (24.5) ppg. Detroit’s 18th ranked scoring offense averages (109.9) points per contest, but they have room for improvement. Shooting guard Luke Kennard is out until later this month; his ability to shoot from beyond the three-point line will be needed for a team that ranks last in the NBA.
Point Guard Reggie Jackson (15.7) ppg with a team-best (4.9) assists per contest is a multi dimensional player who’s growing into a leadership role. However, they may have to add a proven scorer to come off the bench to take it to the next level.
Detroit allows opponents (110.7) points per contest good enough for 16th in the NBA while allowing (46.5%) shooting from the field by opponents, 20th in the league.
The team got confirmation of how defense wins games with their impressive performance as they held Toronto to 16 fourth-quarter points for the best win of the 2018 season thus far. The Pistons need to play tight defense from start to finish, after all, they’re well rested.
Bovada.Lv list Detroit Pistons win total at 38 games for 2018-19.
