When:Monday, March 21st, 2022, 7 p.m. ET

LeBron James and co. are flying to Ohio to face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The Lakers have been pretty bad lately, despite the fact that they won a championship just 2 seasons ago. They are holding a record of 30 and 41 and are on the brink of missing the play-in tournament.

The Cavs, on the other hand, are playing decently, notwithstanding the absence of a superstar in their roster. They are sitting in the 6th position in the Eastern Conference with 41 wins and 30 losses.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The first time All-Star Darius Garland is on fire this season. He manages to carry the team even without the help of the 2nd option Collin Sexton. Caris LeVert's presence has also lifted the Cavs' win percentage as he is averaging decent numbers.

If Jarrett Allen is available, his presence will put the nail on the Lakers' coffin in this matchup. However, he will sit out the game, and so will Dean Wade, Rajon Rondo and Collin Sexton.

Los Angeles Lakers

It's no secret that the Lakers are not doing so well. Bear in mind that this is one of LeBron's best scoring seasons in his career, but look at where they are — they are on the tip of missing the playoffs entirely as the Spurs are closing in with just a 2-win difference to take the Lakers out of the play-in position. Everyone unanimously agrees that trading for Westbrook was a bad idea after 71 games. Los Angeles depends so much on Anthony Davis, and Westbrook is not the answer.

James and THT have been listed as questionable for this season, whereas AD and Kendrick Nunn are listed as out.
