CLEVELAND: LAST SEASON: 50-32, lost in NBA Finals.
COACH: Tyronn Lue (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G George Hill (10.0 ppg), G Rodney Hood (14.7 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.6 ppg), F Cedi Osman (3.9 ppg), C Tristan Thompson (5.8 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F LeBron James, F Jeff Green, G Jose Calderon
KEY ADDITIONS: Rookie G Collin Sexton, F David Nwaba, F Sam Dekker
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Sexton and Osman. The No. 8 overall pick in the NBA draft, Sexton could fill the massive void left when the Cavs granted Kyrie Irving's trade demand and dealt him to Boston last year. Hill can adequately hold down the fort while Sexton, more of a slasher than shooter, develops. Lue will be patient with Sexton, but it may not take long for him to force his way into the starting lineup. Osman has the misfortune of being the player to take the spot owned by James. But the 23-year-old is fearless, very talented and he learned a ton while being teammates with the world's best player.
OUTLOOK: Forget the Finals. After four straight June matchups with Golden State, the Cavs will have a tough time even making the playoffs. Love has gone from being the third option, to the second to the first and it will be interesting to see if the All-Star can carry the Cavs the way he carried Minnesota for six seasons. The Cavs have no intention of tanking, and head into the season trying to stay competitive while developing young players ' and that's not easy.
CHARLOTTE: LAST SEASON: 36-46, missed playoffs.
COACH: James Borrego (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (22.1 ppg), G Jeremy Lamb (12.9 ppg), G Nicolas Batum (11.6 ppg), F Marvin Williams (9.5 ppg), C Cody Zeller (7.6 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Dwight Howard, G Treveon Graham
KEY ADDITIONS: G Tony Parker, C Bismack Biyombo, F Miles Bridges
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Hornets added 17-year veteran Parker to bolster their second team and to play down the stretch of tight games alongside Walker, a two-time All-Star and the team's best player. Lamb is expected to replace former No. 2 overall pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in the starting lineup, although second-year guard Malik Monk could push him for that job. Zeller regains his starting job after Howard was traded, a move that may prove to be addition by subtraction. Borrego is expecting big things from Batum, who should have a bounce back season playing with close friend and fellow Frenchman Parker.
OUTLOOK: The Hornets should compete for a playoff spot in the East, where mediocrity reigns. Their starting lineup isn't any better than it was a year ago, but they're much deeper this season and there shouldn't be as much drop off as last season when it comes to the second team. Charlotte will play an up-tempo game under Borrego, a former assistant with the Spurs. In fact, the Hornets have been working with a 12-second shot clock in practice to get used to playing at a faster pace. Rebounding could be an issue with Howard gone.
Hornets go for revenge vs. Cavs

CHARLOTTE -- The revenge pendulum swings back in the favor of the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night when they face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third time this season.

The teams have split one-sided affairs, with the Hornets running up a 126-94 home win 10 days before the Cavaliers turned the tables in a 113-89 shellacking on their home floor.

Charlotte has gone 3-3 this season when attempting to avenge a loss in its previous meeting with an opponent, beating Atlanta, Chicago and Milwaukee under those circumstances.

Flipping things against an opponent that clobbered them by 24 points might be asking a lot of the Hornets, but surely that could have been said of the Cavaliers when they faced Charlotte after having been smothered by 32 in the earlier meeting.

"We're going to get better," Hornets coach James Borrego insisted to the gathered media after a 128-100 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday. "That's what we do. We respond."

It was Cleveland that responded the last time the teams met. After allowing Charlotte to shoot 57.1 percent and accumulate 67 points off the bench in its earlier home win, the Cavaliers limited the Hornets to 34.7 percent shooting and their backups to 32 points in the rematch.

For Cleveland, it was one of four times this season in which it avenged an earlier defeat.

On the other hand, the Cavaliers haven't beaten any opponent more than once this season, a task that will be made tougher on Wednesday night by the fact that they'll be playing the second game of a road back-to-back.

The good news is the first night of the sequence went well for Cleveland, which got a buzzer-beating tip-in from Larry Nance Jr. in a 92-91 win at Indiana.

The Cavaliers were without three starters against the Pacers, with Tristan Thompson (sprained foot) and Jordan Clarkson (sore back) having recently joined Kevin Love (toe surgery) on the sidelines.

Nance made the most of a rare start at center, pulling a career-high 16 rebounds to complement 15 points, six assists and three steals.

David Nwaba was inserted into the starting backcourt, and while he didn't score in 14 minutes, the defensive-minded guard helped the Cavaliers hold the potent Pacers tandem of Victor Oladipo (12 points) and Darren Collison (five) to a total of 17 points on 6-for-21 shooting.

Nwaba was returning to the starting group as Cavaliers coach Larry Drew sought to find a way to end a two-game losing streak.

"When he was in the starting lineup, we did establish some type of rhythm with our starters, and then the guys coming off the bench, they were in a rhythm as well," Drew explained of the Nwaba promotion before Tuesday's game. "What I saw with him in the starting lineup, I really liked."

Defending Charlotte's guards has been a handful for most teams. Kemba Walker has scored 20 or more points in 20 of the team's 29 games, while Jeremy Lamb has reached double figures in 20 of his last 21 games.

Neither has been at his best in the Hornets' current two-game losing streak, with Walker having been harassed into 8-for-33 shooting (4-for-18 on 3-pointers) while totaling 20 points in the losses to New York and the Lakers, while Lamb has shot 11-for-30 (2-for-11 on threes) and scored just 28 points.
