Nets come to town
The Cavaliers will face the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena. That will mark their first meeting since the Eastern Conference semifinals last season when the Cavs upended the Nets, four games to two.
It’s unsure whether Cavs forward LeBron James will play. He’s missed the previous two games with a sprained left index finger. The Nets, obviously, hope that he doesn’t.
Without him, the Cavs are averaging 76 points in the two games. They are having major problems making baskets. They recorded season lows in points (70) and field-goal percentage (32.9 percent) in Sunday’s loss to Boston.
The Cavs have lost three in a row for the first time this season.
