Cleveland @ Phoenix
Current Records: Cleveland 3-3; Phoenix 1-3
What to Know
The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t won a matchup against the Phoenix Suns since Feb. 21 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought this past Saturday. The Cavaliers might have tired legs after a game yesterday as they head on the road against Phoenix at 10 p.m. ET Oct. 30 at Footprint Center.
It was all tied up 54-54 at halftime, but Cleveland was not quite the Los Angeles Lakers’ equal in the second half when they met this past Friday. Cleveland took a 113-101 bruising from Los Angeles. Despite the loss, Cleveland got a solid performance out of power forward Evan Mobley, who had 23 points in addition to six rebounds.
Meanwhile, the point spread favored the Suns this past Wednesday, but luck did not. They lost 110-107 to the Sacramento Kings on a last-minute jumper from Sacramento’s small forward Harrison Barnes as the clock expired. Phoenix’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of center Deandre Ayton, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 21 boards, and shooting guard Devin Booker, who had 31 points and eight assists along with six rebounds.
Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a victory. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
