Grizzlies vs Kings: have won four in a row and are suddenly surging. A weak part of their schedule has given them a chance to beat up.
This game marks the start of a three-game road trip for the Cavaliers. All three are on national TV, giving a healthier Cleveland team a great opportunity to show its legitimacy to many of the fans that have doubted them this season
Analysis: The Cavaliers are following their usual late March and early April routine. After spending most of the winter struggling, the Cavs are surging to a point where they can comfortably enter the playoffs with a high seed. They lost too many games early in the season to climb out of their hole completely, but they’re playing some good basketball right now.
The Nets are a different story. They’ve been playing bad basketball since January. Brooklyn started off the season with some hope that it could be spunky and steal enough wins to finish more in the middle of the East. Since the Nets don’t even have a draft pick, there’s no incentive to tank. They’re simply a bad basketball team.
There’s a possibility the matinee tip-off time throws the Cavs off, but this should be an easy win for LeBron and Co. These two teams are just in different places right now.
