OPENING TIP As far as this season goes, the Cavaliers are a mystery from night to night and not a team you can pick to win. When they put four quarters together, theyre actually pretty enjoyable and have a chance against anyone. But that happens about twice a month. Otherwise, they need to rely on their opponent not playing well. Tonight, theyre playing a similar team in the Kings -- young, talented, maddening. The Cavs have lost two straight and the Kings four. Venue: Sleep Train Arena, Sacramento, Calif. TVRadio: 9:30 p.m. EST, FOX Sports OhioWTAM All-Time Series: Tied, 53-53. PROJECTED STARTERS CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (9-30) C Tyler Zeller PF Tristan Thompson SF Alonzo Gee SG CJ Miles PG Kyrie Irving SACRAMENTO KINGS (13-24) C DeMarcus Cousins PF Jason Thompson SF John Salmons SG Francisco Garcia PG Isaiah Thomas Pregame notes: This appears to be the Cavs final game in Sacramento, as the Kings are preparing for an ownership change and move to Seattle. Tyreke Evans didnt play in the Kings win in Cleveland on Jan. 2. He likely will tonight, and possibly even start in place of Garcia. Basically, the hits just keep on coming for the Cavs. Aaron Brooks (flu) is questionable for the Kings. Brooks turns 28 today. This is the Cavs 13th back-to-back of the season. They havent fared well on second nights. (Or too many firsts, for that matter.) Kings rookie forward Thomas Robinson has grabbed 10 or more rebounds in each of the last three games. The Kings are 11-3 when leading at half, but just 2-22 when trailing (and 1-22 when trailing after three quarters).
