CLEVELAND, OH--- The Cavs take on the Houston Rockets as the Cavs looks to clinch their first playoff berth without LeBron James since the 97-98 season. Cleveland came out the gates with a purpose, as they would control majority of the game as they controlled the first half and take a commanding 60-43 lead going into the second half. Houston however, would not go down without a fight. The Rockets came out of the locker room ready to spoil the Cavs possibility of clinching their playoff spot by outscoring Cleveland 37--25 in the third quarter and ended that quarter with a 16-4 run. Cleveland then showed why they are in the position they're in by taking care of business and eventually closing the game out with a 108-91 victory. Leading the way for Houston was Jalen Green with a 30 point performance. For Cleveland, Allen lead the way with 24 points and 14 boards.

Cleveland improves to a 48-28 record and with their 30th home win at RMFH as they clinch the franchises first playoff berth since the 2017-2018 season. The Cavaliers has 6 games remaining in the season as they continue to try and close this season out strong before the playoff as they play the Atlanta Hawks next in Atlanta on Tuesday.
