877 CAVALIERS at 878 ROCKETS

Take: 878 ROCKETS -5.5

Cleveland playing the second of back to backs has been fade material. The Cavs are only 4-8/3-9 in this situation, which I think speaks to the motivational issues this team is having. That’s not a knock on King James and friends, as these regular season games are just a warmup for the main event called the playoffs. So I think the Rockets will be more interested here with this being a revenge game on national TV at home. There’s not really a great deal more to this than what I just wrote. Opinion is Houston minus the points is the way to play this game.
