Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Jon Leuer revenge game!

STUFF!

Kyrie Irving is listed as doubtful due to the same flu-like symptoms that Tyler Zeller, Dion Waiters, and Daniel Gibson previously had. Those three are all expected to play while I highly doubt Kyrie will play. We'll get an update on Kyrie momentarily.

The Grizzlies are pretty damn good, especially defensively. Cleveland, on the other hand, is not good defensively. This will be a test of the Cavaliers' toughness and ability to play at a slow, grind it out pace. That test is made approximately one billion times harder if it turns out that Kyrie is unable to go tonight.

THE JON LEUER REVENGE GAME

Let's be real, this is what tonight is all about. In January, Chris Grant traded away local legend, Jon Leuer to the hated Memphis Grizzlies. The trade brought Wayne Ellington, Marreese Speights, and a future first round pick to the Cavaliers -- but at what cost??! They had to give up Jon effin' Leuer! You don't just trade Jon Leuer.

Now, after some particularly nasty comments in the media about Cleveland, Jon "Judas" Leuer can expect to hear the boos rain down upon him from every seat in the Q.

Security for this game has been double -- NAY! -- tripled. It's going to be by far the most raucous crowd that the Q has ever seen. The only question that remains is how Leuer will react to the crowd. Will he embrace his inner villain or will he crumble under the pressure? FIND OUT AT 7:30.
