Only Stauskas from PHI made it to the Net Player Score (NPS) categories from their last game and they lost their last game too. Not sure whether other players in PHI are going to step-up very soon. But I do believe in Home court advantage and anything can happen when fans are feeding the energy to players. 18 turnovers in their last game, which is a big concern for PHI.

Just one player in “Very Good” NPS category and no support from other players.

Cavs are in a different zone right now with 2 wins in a row and their offense is rocking. Kevin, LeBron, Tristan and Delly are doing their damage early and catching the opponent's defense off-guard many times and more importantly in all quarters.

Blatt might change the starters or rotation to give more minutes to Smith or Mo and may even rest key players during the last quarters. We are going to see the same strategy adapted for the Heat’s game. Starter's start big and bench fill in the gaps.

CFF’s Prediction : Cavs will win this road game as well.

Tristan blocking on Bosh was one of the highlights of the game. Picture perfect block, in my opinion
It's the first home game for the Cavs and as I predicted in my pre-game notes, offense kept their rhythm going deep in to 4th quarter. Another team win and when it happens at home it is even more sweet!  

Delly is unstoppable with his cool headed assists!

  • Tristan blocking on Bosh was one of the highlights of the game. Picture perfect block, in my opinion! 
  • Delly kept the offense short sweet with couple of assists to Tristan. 
  • Looks like Tristan and Delly formed their own small team within the Cavs team!
  • I'm still waiting for the big game from Mo and Smith. I think they will get better and get more minutes I guess
Again, Kevin Love is on fire with Tristan and Delly doing their best. LeBron is LeBron as usual! 

As you can see both Kevin and LeBron are Outstanding and Tristan in Excellent with Delly in Very Good categories of NPS. Check here what these NPS Percentages are. NPS (Net Player Score)

Go Cavs!
Coming of from Road Game K. Love 97.05 M. Dellavedova 83.41
Cavs are coming of from the road game with a win and scoring 106 points. It's a high score game with a different offense mindset from the start of the game. Most importantly with a great team effort.

Here are the NPS (Net Player Scores for both CLE and MIA (based on their last game). To find more about NPS clik here.

7 players from CLE made it to the NPS compared to 4 players from MIA. 

Good to see Smith in this NPS mix and at the same time sad not to see Mo in this list. I am expecting a battel within Cavs players, mainly between Mo and Smith. Why? they both are the best shooters from both short and long range. As this the home game, high energy from fans will be feeding these 2 players as well. Hope they both share the same amount of minutes in this game. It's going to be fun!

Smith played almost 34 minutes compared to Mo's 22 minutes. Both produced the same number of points but other stats tells us a different story. Let's see what Blatt's plan for Smith and Mo for this game. Cunningham is also on the roll along with Delly which is a good sign. Both Cunningham and Delly are very athletic, healthy and eager to be on the floor as and when possible.

MIA coming of from their home game with a win, scoring 104 points. As you can see bulk of the load was carried by the core four of Heat. Bosh was right on the money after his return and Wade is as usual with trademark stats.
