PREVIOUSLY, THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS...lost 98-92 at home to Orlando on Sunday. It was Cleveland's third straight loss and the third straight game for which Mike Brown rested LeBron James.

Cleveland won all three previous meetings with the Hawks this season: 95-84 on December 29th in Atlanta, 106-101 in Cleveland on December 30th, and 93-88 in Cleveland on April 2nd.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.
