CLEVELAND, Ohio – Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers are in Los Angeles to take on the Clippers, a team they beat by 22 points two weeks ago in Cleveland, starting their current six-game loss. This is the fourth Cavaliers game on the road. They have one more street game against the Golden State Warriors on Monday before returning home to face the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.
Road trips pose special challenges for coaches and players, even in times without a pandemic. The team’s routine is disrupted and they can’t practice as much, which means that a coach will have a harder time getting their jobs done, especially when the team is young like the Cavs.
Hopefully the Cavs get enough practice to do a few threesomes, remember how to play defense, split the stone, and end the losing streak against the team that started it in the first place.
