2012 NBA schedule: Cavs face Grizzlies, Suns this week

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to find their way back into the win column this week, as they face the Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns in back-to-back nights.

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to trudge through their schedule without star point guard Kyrie Irving, as he remains sidelined with a finger injury.

Irving has been sidelined since Nov. 21 and is expected to miss up to four weeks with the injury. Cleveland is 1-2 in his absence, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers but falling to the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat over the weekend. Dion Waiters has stepped up offensively with Irving out, averaging close to 20 points in the past three games. Anderson Varejao has also played well in that time, averaging 17 rebounds and scoring in double digits in each of the last three games.

The Cavs travel to face a Memphis team Monday that has won nine of the last 10 games and owns the best winning percentage in the NBA. Rudy Gay has led the seventh-ranked Grizzlies offense, averaging 20.1 points and 2.5 assists per game. Big man Zach Randolph leads the team in rebounding with 13.6 per game.

The Suns and Cavaliers meet for the second time this season Tuesday. The Suns took the first matchup, 107-105, in a comeback win led by wing Shannon Brown's 22 points. Cleveland looks for revenge at home against the 6-8 Suns in their last meeting of the 2012-2013 season.
