Cavaliers Vs. Timberwolves: Cleveland Looks To Start New Winning Streak

The Cleveland Cavaliers saw their winning streak snapped against Toronto in their last outing. Tonight in Minneapolis they will try to move back over .500 when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves. Fear the Sword points out that coach Byron Scott's rotations have had a hit or miss effect so far:

A really frustrating thing for an athlete can be simply sharing minutes with a player at your spot. It is a huge boost to a starter mentally if they can actually know they are the "guy" at their position instead of truly being rotated in fairly even type minutes in most games.

Instead of Scott going with people 26/22 minutes, I think the better route would be to go longer with whoever he deems his top 7 or 8 guys and then drop the clock of a few people (yes I'm looking at you Ryan Hollins).

The Cavs stand at 3-3 on the season, but this is a critical stretch for them. The game at Minnesota is the second of seventh straight road games. Cleveland does not return home until Jan. 17.
