The Cavs return from the All-Star break with the idea of actually winning. Not that they havent been trying before, but sometimes, all a young team needs is the excitement of All-Star weekend (which four of the Cavs starters received) to get a fresh perspective on what it takes to be great. The Hornets are expected to be without starting guard Eric Gordon, who will sit out because of medical requirements surrounding his still-healing knee.
