What to Know

The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t won a matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers since Nov. 17 of 2017, however they’ll be aiming to end the drought on Sunday. Cleveland will go out on the roadway to take on against Los Angeles at 10 p.m. ET at Staples Center. The Clippers must still be feeling great after a victory, while Cleveland will be seeking to return in the win column.

Cleveland wound up a good deal behind the Portland Path Blazers when they played this previous Friday, losing 129-110 Cleveland was down 100-77 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recuperate from. Despite the defeat, they had strong showings from point player Collin Sexton, who had 25 points and 5 helps, and center Jarrett Allen, who had 22 points in addition to 6 rebounds. Sexton had some problem finding his footing versus the Denver Nuggets last Wednesday, so this was an action in the ideal instructions.

On The Other Hand, the Clippers didn’t have excessive difficulty with the Chicago Bulls on the roadway this past Friday as they won 125-106 Los Angeles’ small forward Kawhi Leonard did his thing and had 33 points together with six boards.

Cleveland is now 10-17 while Los Angeles sits at 19 -8. A set of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Cleveland is 2nd worst in the league in points per video game, with just 103.9 usually.
