Among the matchups fans can watch Wednesday night will be Cavs vs. Hornets live streaming online and televised game coverage. The two teams meet as Cleveland has already secured a spot in the postseason, while Charlotte is still clinging to hopes of grabbing one of the final spots in the East. Here’s the latest game preview for tonight including point spread, total, start time, television channels, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Hornets live streaming online.
As reported earlier today by ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers (44-30) will once again be without star forward Kevin Love who will be sidelined after being put in the concussion protocol. It’s unknown as of this report how long the Cavs’ player will be out of action, as Cleveland tries to bounce back from a 98-79 loss to the Miami Heat last night and continue trying to hold onto a top-four spot in the playoff standings.
As for the Charlotte Hornets (34-41), the team has yet to be officially eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, but they’re close. Right now, the Detroit Pistons (34-40) are a spot above them in the chase, with three spots remaining. The Washington Wizards (41-33), Miami Heat (40-35), and Milwaukee Bucks (39-35) are holding those spots with seven to eight games left on the schedule for most of the teams. Fans in Charlotte may see history made tonight as well, as their All-Star Kemba Walker is closing in on becoming the team’s all-time leading scorer.
Due to the absence of Kevin Love for tonight’s battle, it has swung the odds in the home team’s favor. Odds Shark listed the opening point spread as three points in favor of Cleveland, but now many sportsbooks have it anywhere from a one to two-point spread in favor of the Hornets. For the over/under points total, a consensus of 225.5 points is the latest number to consider. The Cavs have a 9-1 straight up record in the last 10 meetings between these teams, and a 7-2-1 record against the spread, while the “over” has hit seven of the 10 times.
