Korver's Cavaliers Transition Has Been a Rocky One

The Cleveland Cavaliers are coming off a pair of uninspiring performances against Portland and Utah, but they’ll have an opportunity to bounce back on Friday vs the Sacramento Kings. Oddsmakers initially set the Kings as 6-point home underdogs with a total of 211.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games with one day off between games.
  • The Kings are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Kings are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games after an ATS win.

The Cavs shot a season-worst 34.1 percent from the field against Portland and had more turnovers (16) than assists (14) in the 102-86 loss. The team is attempting to fit in newly acquired sharpshooter Kyle Korver, who recently came over in a trade from the Atlanta Hawks. Korver is averaging just two points on 2-of-10 shooting in two games since the trade.

Cleveland absolutely owned this series last year, as the wine and gold dropped at least 120 points on the Kings in their two victories last season. The Cavs have won four of their past five vs Sacramento.

The Cavs simply haven't been getting the job done when tabbed as favorites lately. In its last six with the favorite label, Cleveland is 0-6 ATS.
