Cleveland will open the preseason in early October with a matchup against Chicago. Interestingly, the team will be right back in action the next night for a matchup with the Hawks. A preseason back-to-back is an interesting scheduling quirk.
After the preseason wraps up, it will be full steam ahead for the Cavs. Fans are excited to see the new-look team in action.
Most notably, Evan Mobley is going to draw some eyeballs. There will presumably be some growing pains, but the 7-footer going to bring a lot to the table.
It figures to be one of the most intriguing Cavs seasons in several years. With the NBA play-in format sticking around for the 2021-22 campaign, there’s a chance the Cavaliers could sneak into the postseason.
