The Cavs will be without LeBron James tonight, as he is being rested. The Cavs are 5-2 in their last seven straight up but just 2-6 ATS in their last eight. Houston isn’t exactly solid right now either, going just 3-6 overall and ATS in their last 9 games. It will be interesting to see if the Cavs step up without LeBron tonight. They are still a team that is 30-6 at home and only a 2-point favorite against a team with a losing road record. The Rockets haven’t shown enough in my eyes to pick them tonight as the Cavs still have plenty of talent without James. If anything, it’s a chance for the guys to show what they can do without him.
