The Cavs should have some advantages for this one.
The Suns will have no Devin Booker, no Chris Paul, no Cam Payne, no Cam Johnson, no Jae Crowder. Mikal Bridges is still playing and so is Deandre Ayton, but a big chunk of the Suns’ core roster is out. The Cavs have Darius Garland despite him being listed as questionable and Donovan Mitchell back from a few days of rest. Cleveland being six-point favorites on the road reflects this.
