Analysis

Coming into today’s action, Cleveland is averaging 116.2 points per contest. This figure
places them 8th in the league. So far, the Cavaliers are averaging 100.1 possessions per game,
which places them below the NBA average. This deliberate style of basketball has played a role in
the unit ranking just 14th in made shots per game.

Defensively, the Cavaliers are one of the top-performing units in the league, giving up 105.67
points per contest (5th).

A key matchup to watch is if the team’s leading scorer Donovan Mitchell will be limited at all
by the Clippers, who are on the NBA’s top teams at limiting the scoring of opposing shooting
guards.

The Clippers come into today’s game as the 30th-ranked scoring offense at 102.3 points per
game. Coming into today’s game, the Clippers will be looking to improve their 3-point shooting
numbers, as they are averaging just 10.1 made 3’s per game. If the Los Angeles offense is going
to turn things around, not only do they need to improve their outside shooting but they must do a
better job protecting the ball. Currently, they are averaging 15.6 turnovers per game.

So far, the Clippers have played well defensively, as they are ranked 11th in the league at
108.39 points per contest.

Leading scorer Paul George will need to be on top of his game vs. the Cavaliers, as they were
on the NBA’s top teams at limiting the scoring of opposing small-forwards.
