The Cavaliers have two back to backs this week, including games against tough teams like Chicago and New York.
The Cleveland Cavaliers come out of the All Star Break looking a bit down and out at 13-18. Kyrie Irving is having a great season as was expected, but the Cavs need to put it all together if they want to challenge for a playoff berth.
Cleveland start off the week with a back to back. Tuesday sees the Cavs welcoming the Boston Celtics to town. The Celtics have had a very disappointing year and sit at 15-17 after the All Star break. The 'big three' hasn't gelled like it did when they won the title back in 2008 and spent most of the all star break heckling other players.
Wednesday the team heads to New York to see the slightly cooled Lin-Sanity. With Carmelo Anthony back, Jeremy Lin and the Knicks started to falter a bit down the stretch to the ASB but they're still a supremely talented team. Especially at home, the Knicks have the talent to knock out a team like Cleveland, especially if Melo can get his groove back on an ankle and wrist that have been bothering him for a long while.
