The NBA schedule is packed Friday and Saturday, including back-to-back games for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
This weekend's NBA schedule is full of games Friday and Saturday, including two contests for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs play at the Hawks Friday night and return home for a showdown with the Trail Blazers on Saturday.
Against the Hawks, Cleveland will be facing the fourth-best defense in the NBA. Atlanta is holding opponents to just 92.0 points per game, and the Hawks have ridden their tough defense to a 9-4 record and a six-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Cavs are in the Central Division basement at 3-12.
The Trail Blazers will head into Cleveland Saturday night for their second straight road game. The Cavaliers should have a much easier time scoring against Portland, which allows 101.1 points per game, good for 26th in the NBA.
