Cleveland fans are hoping that when they watch Timberwolves vs. Cavs live streaming and television coverage tonight, their team will end their recent struggles. They’ll host Minnesota at Quicken Loans Arena after suffering back-to-back losses to the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic. Here are the latest details for tonight’s game, including who the favorites to win are, what time the game starts, and how to watch the Timberwolves vs. Cavs live streaming online.
As reported by NBA.com on Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers (30-22) fell 116-88 to the Magic last night despite having a 19-1 record against Orlando over their last 20 meetings. Last night’s matchup saw head coach leave the game due to being sick. However, Lue’s sickness was an “undisclosed illness” that had him leave during the second quarter. In addition to that, power forward Kevin Love will remain out of actions for up to two months, leaving Cleveland looking for answers up front.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (34-22) are on a two-game winning streak and have won three of their last five games. However, their two losses both came on the road, one of which was to a below-0.500 Atlanta Hawks team. Still, Minnesota comes into this game with 109 points per game as their scoring average while holding opponents to 105.7 points a game. They’ll hope to take advantage of a struggling Cavs team in order to boost their record in the Western Conference.
Despite the recent losses, the oddsmakers still like the Cavs to win tonight’s home game. Odds Shark has a consensus point spread of 3.5 points in favor of Cleveland with an over/under of 224.5 points. For moneyline bettors, the Cavaliers are -155 to -165 favorites with Minnesota as +135 to +145 underdogs. While the Cavs are 7-3 in these teams’ last 10 meetings, Minnesota is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games. However, the Wolves are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine away games.
