Cleveland had a five-game win streak snapped at home on Monday against the Pistons. You would think a LeBron James led team would be strong after a loss, but the Cavaliers are just 6-8 against the spread this season coming off a defeat while Charlotte is 16-12 ATS after a win. The Hornets have some injury issues as the forward position, but they seem to have figured something out over the last few weeks while the Cavaliers are a little worn down. Look for Charlotte to keep this one interesting.
