The fans at Spectrum Center will be treated to a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Charlotte Hornets when they take their seats on Friday.

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS (46-24): Cleveland finally got its full roster healthy in Denver with shooting guard Kyle Korver (foot) returning from a seven-game absence and is more concerned with ironing out rotations and getting the defense locked in prior to the playoffs than going after the No. 1 seed. The defense was not at its best as the Nuggets shot 53.1 percent from the field but Korver knocked down three 3-pointers in 19 minutes off the bench and Kevin Love put in 22 solid minutes in his third game back from a knee injury. While Lue was questioning his team’s toughness after the game, superstar forward LeBron James assured reporters that the physicality the team needs will be there in the playoffs.

ABOUT THE HORNETS (32-39): Charlotte rallied to beat Orlando 109-102 on Wednesday behind reserve center Frank Kaminsky, who scored 13 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter on 4-of-4 shooting. “We just started playing with energy in the fourth quarter,” Kaminsky told reporters. “That’s what it came down to. We made the plays we needed to make. We were going back and forth for a while, but one team is going to emerge at the end of the game and it was just us tonight.” Kaminsky is averaging 16.5 points over the last four games and knocked down 7-of-13 from 3-point range in the last two contests.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cavaliers listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Hornets, while the game’s total is sitting at 211½.

The Charlotte Hornets are working hard to stay in the race for a postseason spot but are running out of time as the schedule gets tighter. The Hornets will try to stay in the race and prove they can play with the top teams in the league when they host the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.

The Hornets are winners of three straight but have just 11 games to play and will play 10 of those games against teams competing for postseason spots as they try to chase down eighth-place Miami. The Hornets will play their next three at home before closing with five of eight on the road, including trips to Toronto, Oklahoma City and Washington. The Cavaliers are suddenly in a battle of their own for the top spot in the East and lead the hard-charging Boston Celtics by just one game after suffering a 126-113 loss at Denver on Wednesday. “You have to be tougher,” Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue told reporters after the loss. “You have to have more urgency and that comes from all of us. They got 3-point shots, they got points in the paint, they got offensive rebounds, they got whatever they wanted and we have to be better than that, and that starts with the players and the coaches and we have to look ourselves in the mirror.”

Charlotte won its last outing, a 109-102 result against the Magic on March 22. The Hornets covered in that game as a -4.5-point favorite, while the 211 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Cleveland was a 126-113 loser in its last match on the road against the Nuggets. They failed to cover the -2-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 239 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
