On December 23, 2020, the Cleveland Cavaliers will open up their season against the Charlotte Hornets in Cleveland at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse. The tipoff is at 7:00 p.m. The Cavs finished a four-game preseason with a record of 2-2 and are now officially ready to begin the regular season.
This Cavaliers team is hungry and ready to compete. With young star PG Collin Sexton and rookie SF Isaac Okoro, the Cavaliers look to start the season hot with an opening night victory. The Cavaliers have struggled their past two seasons only winning 19 games in both the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons.
The Cavs’ last winning season was three years ago when SF LeBron James was still on the team.
Looking into the future, the Cavs want to compete and bring back a winning culture to the City of Cleveland. The contagious winning momentum begins with an opening night victory over the Hornets, giving the Cavs an advantage for the rest of the year. Looking back at last season, the Cavs and Hornets faced each other twice and split the head-to-head series, 1-1. On the Hornets’ side of the ball, their latest draft pick PG LaMelo Ball brings the Hornets some young and exciting talent.
What’s great about this opening day matchup is that both the Cavs and Hornets have players that can progress into superstars. The NBA is always intrigued by young talent and this matchup will be one for the books.
My bold prediction for this game is Isaac Okoro leads the Cavaliers in scoring for his first career start. The Cleveland Cavaliers are a young team and they are ready to shock the league.
Cleveland, get on your feet, as your 2020-2021 Cleveland Cavaliers look to have a joyous season for all of us to remember!
