Charlotte Hornets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Match Preview | November 13, 2016

Match Update : Cleveland 100 – 93 Hornets (Cleveland won).

The Cleveland Cavaliers are ready to put forward an enhanced fight against the Hornets today at Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland.

However, Lue’s tenure has been too short and hence it will be important to see how much winning attitude he has been able to infuse into the team, especially after the Cavaliers dropped the first match as Lue being the head coach.

The team is handling the ball fast and they are taking the benefit of fast breaks apart from putting swift shots. Kavin Love, the forward is getting the ball at the elbow more. The team had a team-only meeting headed by Lebron and highly respected James Jones to help Cavaliers set straight.

Charlotte is dealing with a lot of injuries as usual. Jeremy Lamb and Nicolas Batum are not yet confirmed for the match. Cavaliers are a team that can put up the points quickly, hence Lamb and Batum certainly could have put forward a better offense. Batum and Michael-Kidd Gilchrist at two and three are favorite of the Hornets.

Kyrie Irving is averaging a solid points per game and needs to be tackled if Hornets seek a chance. Spencer Hawes will be against Tristan Thompson if Cody Zeller doesn’t return. Hawes is struggling to rebound the ball at an average rate. Marvin Williams will have to guard Kevin Love. Cleveland’s solid defense comprising Matthew Delladova, Iman Shumpert, and Timofey Mozgov is another strong point in support of Cleveland.
