Pelicans-Cavaliers Preview

(AP) -- Now that they've asserted themselves on offense under Tyronn Lue, the Cleveland Cavaliers may want to get back to defense given recent results and a nagging injury.

With Kevin Love hoping to play through a bruised left thigh, the Cavaliers will try to end a two-game skid Saturday night against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Although it boasts the offensive talents of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Love, Cleveland (35-14) had been winning primarily with defense under David Blatt.
