Wolves (3-0) at Cavaliers (1-2)
6:00 pm CentralFS North
The Cavaliers come in having lost two of their first three ballgames, and the stats pretty much tell us why. The Cavs have the 2nd best defensive rating in the league, but the worst offensive rating.
Their problem so far is they haven't made any shots. They are the worst shooting team in the league, and it's been pretty ugly. Their starting back court of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waters are shooting a combined 34% and they have the most attempts on the team. One assumes that will regress, Irving is way too good to shoot it like that for long.
Meanwhile, Mike Brown has them locking in defensively and hitting the defensive boards hard. Hopefully our rebounding duo will get some second chances.
The Wolves could use a better performance from some of their reserves tonight after the starters went heavy minutes last night. I'm looking at you Alexey Shved, Dante Cunningham, and Derrick Williams.
