What you need to know about the Hornets

Charlotte comes into this game as a rightful favorite after getting off to a 5-2 start this season. The Hornets have only lost one game at home — it came in a 140-129 overtime thriller against Boston. They have momentum after picking up a 125-113 win over Portland on Sunday and they have already notched a road win against Cleveland this season.

Guard Terry Rozier returned to the lineup on Sunday, scoring 14 points in 33 minutes. LaMelo Ball has also stepped up during his second season, scoring 27 points in the win over the Trail Blazers. The Hornets have the advantage of facing a team that is on the final leg of a five-game road trip.

What you need to know about the Cavaliers

Cleveland has faced one of the toughest schedules of any team in the NBA so far this season, playing six of its seven games against teams that were in the playoffs last year. The Cavaliers have done well to win three of those games, knocking off the Hawks, Nuggets and Clippers. They won the latter two contests on the road, so they should bring some confidence into this game, which marks the final stop of a five-game road trip.

The Cavaliers were hurt by turnover issues in a loss to Phoenix on Saturday, but there were some positive takeaways. Their leading scorers were reserves Cedi Osman and Kevin Love, who made up for a slow night from point guard Collin Sexton. Cleveland should be motivated after losing to Charlotte two weeks ago.
