Tuesday night’s NBA schedule includes coverage of the Nets vs. Cavs live streaming online or on television for fans to watch. The latest matchup comes as LeBron James and Cleveland suffered a disappointing home loss this past Sunday to the visiting San Antonio Spurs. While the Nets slapped a recent eight-game losing streak with a win over Chicago last night, the Cavaliers know giving them another loss is helping them, and not just this season. Here’s the latest game preview featuring tonight’s matchup odds, start time, television viewing options, and how to watch the Nets vs. Cavs live streaming online.
As ESPN reported on Tuesday, handing the Brooklyn Nets (20-41) another loss will not only aid Cleveland in improving their own record but could also help with the 2018 NBA Draft. Cleveland is holding onto the Nets’ first-round draft pick for this summer, meaning every loss the Nets accumulate will only give the Cavs a greater chance of landing a higher pick in the lottery. That pick was originally held by the Boston Celtics, who used the asset as part of their trade package for former Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving. Brooklyn hasn’t played terribly well over their last 10 games, which is good news for a Cavs team coming off a loss.
The Cavaliers (35-24) dropped Sunday’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs, 110-94. While the team shot 41.8 percent for the game, they were cold from downtown, hitting just eight of the 34 three-point shots they attempted. LeBron James finished one assist shy of a triple-double with 33 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists. Jordan Clarkson also continued to play well since arriving from the Lakers in a trade. The former Los Angeles guard ended up with 17 points off the bench on 7-for-14 shooting including a 3-for-7 three-point rate.
As mentioned in ESPN‘s game preview, the Nets are coming off a 17-point victory over the Chicago Bulls at home last night. However, that hasn’t made the oddsmakers believe in their chances to give Cleveland a close game. The current point spread has the Cavs favored by 10.5 points with a -900 moneyline price while the Nets are +600 underdogs. For tonight’s over/under points total, bettors will be deciding on whether 221 points is too high or low for the two teams combined.
