Korver, who will turn 37 this weekend, will make his second start with the Cavs since being acquired last season.
Hood is averaging 10.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting from the floor and 32.5 percent shooting from 3 in 11 games with the Cavs (four starts). He averaged 16.8 points on 42.5 percent shooting overall and 38.9 percent from 3 in 39 games with the Utah Jazz this season before being traded to Cleveland.

The Finnish teen scored five goals in three games, including a hat trick in a 3-0 win over the New York Rangers. Laine became the third player in league history to post four hat tricks prior to his 20th birthday, joining Jimmy Carson (five) and Dale Hawerchuk (five). He also became the ninth player in NHL history to score 40 goals in one season as a teenager. So it was quite a week, and that was before Laine watched Alex Ovechkin hit 600 goals on Monday. I was there when he made history, so I can maybe watch that someday and show that I was there getting the minus on the ice, Laine said.
