A QUICK STOP AT HOME

Between a four and three game road trip, the Cavs come home to play an April Fool’s joke game against the Ostführer Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are in the Eastern Conference between 3pm and 3pm, but Wine & Gold are 2-0 against Philly this season.

LAST TIME OUT

Shorthanded and in the last game of a West Coast swing, the Cavs hit each other on the chin on Monday in Utah against NBA best jazz. Without a couple of key rotation pieces, the Cavs only played nine guys. Isaiah Hartenstein made his Cavs debut (and first start in the process), drawing a line with five points, 14 boards, and seven assists. Collin Sexton paced up and down with 20 points.
