The 2012-13 NBA season is getting underway on Tuesday, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are right in the thick of things.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will try to get things started the right way as the 2012-13 NBA season opens at Quicken Loans Arena, when they play host to the Washington Wizards at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
