Fresh Faces Could Continue to Cash Tickets for Cavs Backers

The new-look Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t have fared any better in Sunday’s 121-99 thumping of the Boston Celtics, as the influx of players at the trade deadline proved to be a shot in the arm for the struggling team. The wine and gold hit the road on Tuesday to renew acquaintances with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Cavs backers will be hoping they can reverse their recent road woes, as Cleveland has gone 2-12 ATS in its last 14 road contests.



Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against the Thunder.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Thunder’s last seven games after a win.
  • The Cavaliers are 3-11 SU and 2-12 ATS in their last 14 games on the road.

Cleveland brought in Rodney Hood, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. at the deadline while shipping out the underperforming Isaiah Thomas. Hill, Clarkson and Hood combined to go 8-for-14 from downtown against the Celtics and the Cavs as a whole shot 53.6 percent from the floor. J.R. Smith has been hot from three-point range lately, as the veteran is 14-for-24 from beyond the arc over the last four games.

The Thunder tied a franchise record with 16 made three-pointers in Sunday’s 110-92 triumph over Memphis even with Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony sidelined. The duo remain day to day as they continue treatment for their respective injuries.

When the Cavaliers travel to OKC, UNDERs are the story. In Cleveland’s last seven visits to Chesapeake Energy Arena, the UNDER is 5-2.
