The Cleveland Cavaliers will end their mini three game road trip tonight as they face the Charlotte Hornets. Tipoff is set for 7:00 p.m. Eastern on Fox Sports Ohio and NBATV.
The Cavaliers will be without Kevin Love tonight as the team announced he has entered concussion protocol after being hit in the mouth by an elbow early in the first quarter last night against Miami.
However, it sounds like the Cavs will be getting Cedi Osman tonight, judging by his Twitter post today.

Tonight, LeBron James could be tying Michael Jordan’s record of scoring in double-figures. James has done that 865 straight times. Jordan is at 866. How cool would it be for James to tie Jordan in his place tonight?
The Cavs have beaten the Hornets twice tonight and are looking for the season series sweep tonight.
Nov. 15 — Cavs 115, Hornets 107.
Nov. 24 — Cavs 100, Hornets 99.
