What you need to know about the Cavaliers

Cleveland ended up a good deal behind the Toronto Raptors when they played on Thursday, losing 117-104. Cleveland’s loss came about despite a quality game from small forward Lauri Markkanen, who had 20 points in addition to five boards. The Cavaliers are now deadlocked with the Raptors and in a fight to hold onto a top-six seed, which would keep them out of the Eastern Conference play-in tournament.

Jarrett Allen has been out since March 8 with a finger injury and the Cavaliers are just 4-5 in the nine games since he left the lineup. However, size might not be as much of an issue against a Bulls squad that only has two true big men in its rotation. Rookie 7-footer Evan Mobley (15.1 ppg, 8.3 rpg and 1.7 bpg) figures to be a difficult matchup for both Nikola Vucevic and Tristan Thompson and could be key to Cleveland’s success on Saturday night.

What you need to know about the Bulls

Meanwhile, Chicago lost to the New Orleans Pelicans on the road by a decisive 126-109 margin last time out. Despite the defeat, Chicago got a solid performance out of shooting guard Zach LaVine, who had 39 points. Coby White also had 23 points and six assists off the bench, but the Bulls continue to struggle enormously on the defensive end.

New Orleans shot 49.4 percent from the floor and 41.4 percent from the 3-point line while also making a staggering 32-of-34 from the free-throw line. The Bulls are now 4-10 since the NBA All-Star break and have given up 125 points or more in four of their last five games.
