Friday night’s NBA action includes the Cavs vs. Hawks live-streaming and televised game coverage as Cleveland will look for their second win in a row. The two teams both were somewhat active this past Thursday before the NBA trade deadline arrived. Here are the latest details for tonight’s game, including point spread, points total, TV start time, channels, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Hawks live streaming online.
As ESPN reported on Friday, both teams may be shorthanded for tonight’s game, as the new players these teams received before the trade deadline could be sitting out. That includes new Cavs roster members George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson, and John Holland as well as the Hawks’ newest acquisition, Marco Belinelli. Cleveland will still have LeBron James on the hardwood which always seems to give them an advantage over most teams. However, the team no longer has this offseason’s acquisitions including Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, and Dwyane Wade, due to yesterday’s roster reboot.
The Cleveland Cavaliers (31-22) will still enter tonight’s road game as two-point favorites or at -135 on the moneyline, while the Atlanta Hawks (17-38) are +115 underdogs. Meanwhile, it’s expected that the points total will be over or under 116 points. Cleveland is coming off their thrilling overtime buzzer-beater win against the Minnesota Timberwolves, while the Hawks are 2-3 in their last five games. That includes a very slim road loss against Orlando 100-98 last night. Dennis Schroder and Taurean Prince each had 19 points in the losing effort.
