OPENING TIP The Cavs typically havent had much luck against the leagues worst in the Kyrie Irving era. But such is not the case vs. the Bobcats. The Cavs have beaten them five straight. And after getting an earful from Byron Scott about performing less-than-stellar against doormats, the Cavs are looking to bring it from the start against the leagues worst team, record-wise. Venue: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland. TVRadio: 7 p.m. EST, FOX Sports OhioWTAM All-Time Series: Cavs lead, 21-8. PROJECTED STARTERS CHARLOTTE BOBCATS (11-36) C Bismack Biyombo PF Jeff Adrien SF Jeff Taylor SG Gerald Henderson PG Kemba Walker CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (14-34) C Tyler Zeller PF Tristan Thompson SF Alonzo Gee SG Dion Waiters PG Kyrie Irving Pregame notes: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion) is out for the Bobcats. All the Cavs, including Bobbie Gibson and Luke Walton, are good to go. This is the final stop on a five-game road trip for the Bobcats. They lost the previous four -- by an average of 12.7 ppg. Walker is one of five NBA players, along with Irving, who leads his team in scoring (17.8 ppg), assists (5.6 apg) and steals (1.9 spg). Walker also averages an underrated 3.5 rebounds. The game marks the return of former Cavs point guard Ramon Sessions, who has looked good backing up Walker. Sessions also played with Cavs guard Wayne Ellington in Minnesota (2009-10). Sessions has scored 18 or more in five of the previous six games. Walker, meanwhile, has scored in double figures in 18 straight games. He has done so in 44 of the Cats 47 games overall. The Bobcats are third in the NBA in fast-break points (16.4). So they can be dangerous if they get in the open floor.
