No Andre Drummond and Darius Garland for this one is a bit of bummer considering this game, on paper, should have good tests for both. It does, however, mean that Kevin Porter Jr. gets a start and probably a crack at defending Donovan Mitchell and the Cavs will try to pull Rudy Gobert out of the paint with a Kevin Love-Larry Nance Jr. starting frontcourt. There are certainly worse matchups to envision.
