Will Lebron Reach 30K as Cavs Host Thunder?

Lebron James

Lebron has Milestone in Reach Today

The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Cleveland Cavaliers will meet on Saturday afternoon at Quicken Loans Arena. It is the first of the NBA on Saturday afternoons during this season. Tip-off is set for 3:30 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Cavaliers as -3.5-point favorites versus the Thunder, while the game’s total opened at 219. Cleveland is not 3-point favorites and the total is now at 220.

Lebron James needs just 25 points to become the seventh NBA player to score 30,000 career points. It would be great for him if he could do it with Carmelo in the house as well as his best friend Dwyane Wade. The trio are the top of the great 2003 NBA Draft Class and vacation together regularly.

Lebron and the Cavs Look to Get Out of Funk

Cleveland was a 104-103 winner in its last match at home against the Orlando Magic. They failed to cover the -11.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 207 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Cavs snapped a four-game losing streak by beating Orlando 104-103 on Thursday. They’d lost eight of their last 10 and nine of 12 before edging past the Magic.

Cleveland has gone to three straight NBA Finals. Now the Cavs are third in the East, six games behind the Boston Celtics. That expected 4th straight finals is looking grim.

Thunder Playing Better after Bad Start

Oklahoma City was a 114-90 winner in its last match at home against the Los Angeles Lakers. They covered the -9.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 204 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Thunder have won three straight games. They are now 25-20 after starting the year 4-7. Oklahoma City had the league’s MVP last year in Russell Westbrook. They went out and added to its roster by trading for Paul George and Anthony during the offseason.

None of the trio were voted to start in next month’s All-Star Game. Westbrook is having another outstanding season with averages of 24.8 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 9.9 assists. George is averaging 20.4 points and 5.5 rebounds. Then you have Anthony chipping in 17.6 points per game and 15.6 shots per game. Those are career lows.
