Don’t expect Jarrett Allen for Sunday’ Cavs-Hornets game. But Cleveland should still expect to get a win.

The Hornets are playing better of late — they’ve won seven of their last 10 — but this isn’t a good team. LaMelo Ball is out. Mark Williams is out. A few others guys are too. There’s a reason the Cavs are favorites on the road.

Cleveland could also use a win to further solidify itself in the East standings, particularly after the Knicks lost to the Clippers on Friday.
