The Cavs return home tonight looking to right the ship after two lack-luster performances in Memphis and Houston. The good news? LeBron James has had a triple-double each of the last two times the Cavs hosted the Blazers at The Q. Three of his 25 career trip-dubs have come at the expense of Portland, in fact.
The Cavs need to get back to playing sound defense, limiting their turnovers, and getting contributions from people not named LeBron. The Blazers come in struggling—without Rudy Fernandez and Greg Oden—having lost four of six. All of the game info is after the jump…
Cleveland: Mo Williams, Anthony Parker, LeBron James, JJ Hickson, Shaquille O’Neal
Portland: Steve Blake, Brandon Roy, Martell Webster, LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Przybilla.
Cleveland: Leon Powe is out, Jamario Moon is questionable (hamstring), and Daniel Gibson is a game-time decision (hand contusion).
Portland: Nicolas Batum (shoulder), Rudy Fernandez (sciatic), Patrick Mills (foot), Greg Oden (knee), Travis Outlaw (foot), and Jeff Pendergraph (hip) are all out.
