With Monday’s holiday, numerous NBA games will be available, including the Warriors vs. Cavs live-streaming online and televised matchup. These two teams will resume a rivalry that has brewed over the past several seasons. However, the defending champions have looked strong while Cleveland has struggled. Here’s the latest NBA game preview with matchup odds, points total, start time, TV channels, and Warriors vs. Cavs live streaming options.
According to NBA.com, the Cleveland Cavaliers (26-16) will be returning home after spending 17 of the last 20 days on a tough road trip. The team is struggling lately too. Despite the recent debut of All-Star Isaiah Thomas as part of their lineup, the Cavs have dropped eight of their last 11 games. Their most recent loss came to the Indiana Pacers 97-95 on the road as the home team rallied from down 22 points to capture the win. LeBron James finished with 27 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to keep his team from suffering its third straight loss.
Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have won four of their last five contests, including a 127-125 win at Toronto on Saturday night. Klay Thompson had 26 points on 11-for-16 shooting, while Kevin Durant had 25 points and Stephen Curry added 24. That moved the Warriors’ record to 35-9 overall and 19-3 on the road, while giving Toronto just their third loss at the Air Canada Centre.
