Sunday's NBA action includes a quadruple-header of games on NBA TV with LeBron James and the world champion Cleveland Cavs featured. The Cavaliers will take on the Atlanta Hawks with both teams already having clinched spots in the 2017 NBA Playoff picture. However, Cleveland still has to wrap up the overall seed in the East and with Boston right on their heels, they'll need to grab wins. Here's a look at today's Cavs vs. Hawks preview including game odds, time, channel and how to watch it live streaming online.

Cleveland vs. Atlanta preview

Several days ago, Atlanta defeated Cleveland 114-100 with Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap and several other starters missing from the lineup.

However, Tim Hardaway Jr. led the charge as the Hawks grabbed a surprising victory on the road. Now they'll try to gain some major momentum towards the 2017 NBA Playoffs with another win at home today. As of right now, the Hawks have clinched a playoff spot with their record of 41-38 overall. Atlanta would be the No. 5 seed if the playoffs started today and face Washington in the first round. However, the Hawks are also just a half-game ahead of No. 6 seed Milwaukee, so a lot could chance in the next several days.

Cleveland will be ready to avenge that recent loss, though. The Cavaliers are still a half-game ahead of the Boston Celtics for the Eastern Conference lead. Prior to their loss to the Hawks, Cleveland had won four in a row including games against playoff-bound teams such as the Celtics and Pacers.

Now they'll try to get back on track with just three games remaining before the postseason starts. If the postseason were to start today, the Cavs would take on the Chicago Bulls in a first-round matchup, although the Miami Heat are right there competing for that final playoff spot as the season comes to a close.

Today's game odds favor the visiting Cleveland Cavs by2.5 points on the spread or -145 on the moneyline. The Hawks are +125 home underdogs on the moneyline, with the over/under total set around 212 points for the complete game. Atlanta is 17-10 against the spread as an underdog, but just 16-23 ATS at home, while Cleveland is 30-39-2 ATS as the favorite and 12-25-2 on the road.
