Cavaliers contemplating lineup changes
Cleveland Cavaliers head coach John Beilein indicated he may make lineup changes following Wednesday's 124-100 blowout loss to the Miami Heat.
Matthew Dellavedova, Kevin Porter Jr., and Jordan Clarkson started the second half over Darius Garland, Collin Sexton, and Cedi Osman on Wednesday, providing a potential preview of what a lineup change could look like. Dellavedova replacing Garland seems like the most practical solution. The Cavaliers will visit the Dallas Mavericks on Friday.
Garland is averaging 16.7 FanDuel points per game. numberFire's models project him for 14.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.2 3-pointers per game over the rest of the season.
