The Cleveland Cavaliers hope to keep their momentum going when they visit Atlanta to take on the Hawks this weekend. In fact; the hottest team in the NBA he is currently looking to extend his six-game winning streak against the Atlanta Hawks this Sunday. Cleveland will face Atlanta for the second time this season and hopes to win its second game against the Hawks.
However; it will be difficult for the Cavs to defend against Trae Young with the absence of all their players. Already without Collin Sexton for the rest of the season; the Cleveland Cavaliers will now be without Isaac Okoro and Evan Mobley. Although the team has been on fire lately; they may face a major hurdle this Sunday night.

Atlanta Hawks: news and form
The Hawks followed up their victory over Orlando (99-111) with a loss against Denver in their last game (115-133). They will try to bounce back from this loss by winning against the Cavaliers. However; they will only achieve their second victory in their last five games. The Hawks’ main difficulty; it seems; is defensive. They have allowed more than 130 points in two of their last three games. This should not happen in Sunday’s game with the Cavs. With several of the Cavs’ best defenders missing; Trae Young (who isn’t sure if he should make it to the game due to injury) needs to put in a big game to give the Hawks a good chance to win.
Cleveland Cavaliers: news and form
Five consecutive victories after their loss in Milwaukee (112-104) on December 7; the Cavs were in a perfect context to take revenge on the Bucks last Saturday. That’s exactly what Cleveland did. It is true that the Bucks had a team weakened by injuries and covid; but the Cavaliers took the victory. With Darius Garland generating consistent offensive opportunities; Cleveland did well. Garland started slowly this season; but found his groove as the season progressed. Against the Bucks he had 22 points; four rebounds and six assists. With Mobley and Sexton absent; the Cleveland Cavaliers will rely even more on Garland to lead this game against the Hawks.
It’s our opinion that the Hawks will break the Cavs’ streak. The city of Cleveland is devoid of its best defenses and the Hawks; although very erratic on defense; have good offensive solutions. We’re betting on a home win for Atlanta.
