LeBron James has had another great season, averaging 26.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game this year. Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson may not play today due to injuries. Irving is questionable with a knee issue while Thompson is doubtful with a thumb injury.

Atlanta has covered the spread in four of their last five games to get to 37-42 against the spread for the season. The Hawks average 103.1 points per game on offense while allowing 104.1 on defense.

Bet on Cavaliers vs. Hawks

This game is a tough call as both lineups could be severely impacted by the injuries. Atlanta is playing some of its best basketball over the last few games and should be able to take care of business at home. The Hawks still have plenty at stake right now. Cleveland does too, but the Cavs have been struggling to cover as of late and could be without Irving, who is a major asset.
