Utah @ Cleveland

Current Records: Utah 15-7; Cleveland 13-10

What to Know

After three games on the road, the Cleveland Cavaliers are heading back home. They will square off against the Utah Jazz at 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Cleveland hasn't won a contest against Utah since Dec. 16 of 2017, but they'll be looking to end the drought.

The Cavaliers strolled past the Washington Wizards with points to spare this past Friday, taking the game 116-101. Point guard Darius Garland and center Jarrett Allen were among the main playmakers for Cleveland as the former shot 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and almost finished with a triple-double on 32 points, ten dimes, and eight rebounds and the latter dropped a double-double on 28 points and 13 boards. That makes it six consecutive games in which Allen has had at least 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Utah was able to grind out a solid win over the Boston Celtics this past Friday, winning 137-130. Utah's success was spearheaded by the efforts of point guard Mike Conley, who shot 7-for-7 from downtown and finished with 29 points and seven assists, and shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, who shot 6-for-14 from downtown and finished with 34 points and six assists. Conley's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers last Monday.

The Cavaliers are expected to lose this next one by 5. They are currently six-for-six against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Cleveland was pulverized by the Jazz 114-75 when the two teams previously met in March. Maybe Cleveland will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
