FINAL TIME AGAINST THE HAWKS

The Wine & Gold appear to be bouncing back tonight as they attempt to beat the three-game season Atlanta Hawks. The Cavs defeated the Hawks on the streets on January 2 and at home on February 23. Atlanta is on the second night of a duel.

LAST TIME OUT

The second half of the season got off to a rocky start on Friday evening. The Cavs gave the Pelicans in New Orleans a rather unilateral decision to start the second half. When Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. both returned to the line-up, only Collin Sexton, Quinn Cook and Nance could score double digits.
