The Cleveland Cavaliers and Portland Trail Blazers tip-off in about an hour and here's the best place for you to talk about the game. One suggestion: Debate Damian Lillard vs. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love vs. LaMarcus Aldridge.

Here are the starting lineups and key reserves for tonights game.

Cavaliers starters: Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Timofey Mozgov

Cavaliers key reserves: Tristan Thompson, Shawn Marion, Iman Shumpert

Trail Blazers starters: Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Nic Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge, Chris Kaman

Trail Blazers key reserves: Myers Leonard, Steve Blake, Thomas Robinson

The Cavaliers, of course, will be without Anderson Varejao. Portland will be missing center Robin Lopez, its normal starter, who is out with a broken hand. The Trail Blazers will also be missing Joel Freeland and Batum is questionable, but listed as a probable starter, due to a sprained wrist.

Portland leads the all-time series 65-49, although Portland is 25-31 in Cleveland.

Enjoy the game, Cavs fans.
