The Cavs play host to the Bulls on Wednesday night as they look to snap a three-game losing streak and revive any hope of reaching the play-in tournament that the organization may have previously had.
Things haven’t been great lately for Cleveland. Since the last win, the Cavs have been victims to Steph Curry’s white hot shooting streak that he continues on, a loss to a Bulls team minus its best player, and Monday night’s loss to Detroit, which has to rank among the worst of the season for the Cavs, if not the worst.
The recent losing streak has essentially dashed any hopes the Cavs had of making their way into the play-in tournament, which can be both good or bad news, depending on your point of view.
As for Wednesday against the Bulls, it’s a game that Chicago really needs to win if its going to continue to keep pace in the Eastern Conference play-in race, and it’s a game that the Cavs cannot afford to lose if they’d like to hang on to any glimmer of hope of finishing in 10th.
What’s been good
We know the record hasn’t been good, but there certainly are reasons to be optimistic about this team, specifically Darius Garland.
