Cavs have a big game tonight...

ORLANDO, FLORIDA - The Cavs travel out of this miserable weather tonight to Amway Arena to take on what Danny Granger says is "The best team in the East." You know who isn't the best team in the East, or anywhere close? You guessed it, the Pacers. Perhaps there was some serious damage done to Granger's brain when he had his front teeth smashed out a few months ago. Anyhow, back to the Cavs, who can make a statement tonight by defeating a team that has owned them of late. Orlando has won 4 of 5 against the wine & gold, and this is despite the fact that Bron has averaged 29, 10 & 9 against them last year.

Let's not read too much into tonight's result, the Cavs have nothing to lose here. They're going on the road, without their center and starting two guard to face one of the league's hottest teams. If they lose, they've got those crutches, and if they win it's a huge psychological boost for this team. Bench points will be something to watch for tonight, as Orlando's bench is very weak and they play a short rotation. LeBron has dominated the past two games, and pretty much all year long, and if he and Mo Williams show up tonight like they did against Sacramento, it might not matter who else is on the floor with them. The Cavs will look to some young players, J.J. Hickson will likely be used to put a body on Dwight Howard through certain stretches. Stay tuned to for post-game thoughts.
