Cleveland Cavaliers Schedule Opens With Toronto Raptors

The Cleveland Cavaliers schedule was released on Tuesday night. The Cavs open their season with a home game against the Toronto Raptors on Dec. 26.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had to wait quite awhile for their schedule to be put in place for the 2011-12 season thanks to the NBA lockout shortening the season to a 66-game schedule, but the league released it on Tuesday night. The Cavs will open up with a home game against the Toronto Raptors on Dec. 26.

The Cavaliers will play former head coach Mike Brown and the Los Angeles Lakers just once, on the road, but former Cavs superstar LeBron James will face his old team three times with the Miami Heat. The only time James and the Heat will be in Cleveland, however, will be on Friday, Feb. 17 as part of a stretch that includes nine-straight home games for the Cavs.

The Cavs also lucked out a bit as far as their three-game stretches are concerned, too, as they play just one set of games on three consecutive nights. That series begins on April 13 on the road against the Indiana Pacers before traveling to play the Washington Wizards on Saturday and ending with a home game against the Orlando Magic.
