The biggest news in the NBA on Wednesday happens to also involve the best matchup of the night.
The Milwaukee Bucks fired head coach Adrian Griffin on Tuesday, and they are expected to hire Doc Rivers to replace him. Milwaukee is 30-13 on the season, but it felt that Griffin had lost the locker room, according to reports.
That puts the Bucks in an interesting spot against a tough opponent in Cleveland tonight.
That's one of eight games on the slate, with a few teams playing the second night of a back-to-back, including the Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Plus, the Golden State Warriors are back in action for the first time since the tragic passing of assistant coach Dejan Milojević. The team takes on the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

This is a clash of two interesting trends.
Portland is an impressive 5-2 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back this season, while the Rockers are 7-3-1 ATS as home favorites.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Odds, Spread and Total
It's unclear if Rivers will coach this game for Milwaukee, but it was reported on TNT's broadcast last night that he is expected to be the Bucks' next head coach.
Milwaukee is a 6.5-point favorite in this game, but the team is just 8-13-1 against the spread as a home favorite this season.
The Bucks are also a bottom 10 defense this season while the Cavs rank in the top five in the league in defensive rating. This should be an interesting matchup with Griffin now gone.
