The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to make it four wins in a row as they take on the Portland Trail Blazers.

Although they’ll be without Damian Lillard, this team is not a push over by any stretch. Portland has gotten out to a good start by having a slightly better defense than offense. They have posted a 111.9 defensive rating on the year.

Anfernee Simons is fulfilling the promise he showed last season while carrying the offense without Lillard. He has scored 20 or more in his last six games. Jerami Grant seems to have finally found a role that fits his skillset well. This should be a fun one.
