CLEVELAND — LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will host Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday and you can watch live stream of the game on Watch ABC.
The Cavaliers (31-14), who are 20-5 at home this season, are coming off a 124-116 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night, which stopped a run of three successive defeats.
Oklahoma City (28-19), in the meantime, has won three straight with Russell Westbrook scoring 45 points in the win over the Dallas Mavericks to record his 5th 45-point game of the season.
Westbrook, who is averaging 31.0 points, 10.6 rebounds and 10.2 assists per game, leads the league with 23 triple-doubles this season.
Westbrook leads three other Thunder players scoring in double-figures this campaign, with Victor Oladipo, who is putting out 16.2 points per game expected to be another major contributor this weekend.
Missing out though, is big man Enes Kanter, who underwent surgery to repair a fractured right ulna in his forearm after punching a chair during Thursday’s win over the Mavericks.
Kanter was averaging 14.4 points and 6.7 rebounds this season.
Steven Adams is scoring 12.2 points and grabbing 7.5 boards per contest for Oklahoma City, which is 12-13 on the road this term.
Despite picking up a victory in its last contest, Cleveland has won just twice in the last six outings overall and will be mindful of the threat from Westbrook and Co.
Sunday is the first of two meetings this season between the Cavaliers and the Thunder, with the other game schedule for Oklahoma City on Feb 9.
James is averaging 25.7 points, 8.5 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game this season, with Kyrie Irving scoring 24.5 and Kevin Love averaging 20.3 points and 11.1 rebounds per game
