The Portland Trail Blazers are not only still banged up, but they're on the end of a back to back where injured teams suffer the most. An undermanned team is now being forced to log more minutes, and this is where they get exposed. I haven't been impressed up to this point with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but this is a game they should win and should win comfortably if we're being honest. Thick line, but it's Cavs or pass.
