Cavaliers Schedule 2012: Bulls And Hawks Games Make A Difficult Weekend For Cleveland

The Cavaliers have a two game weekend, with a draw against division leading Chicago being the highlight.

The Cleveland Cavaliers split their weekday games this week against the Charlotte Bobcats and Golden State Warriors, a disappointing number considering both of those games were certainly winnable for Kyrie Irving and the Cavs. They'll have two chances to get more wins during the weekend but it's going to be a hard task and the Cavs will probably gladly take a 1-1 record out of the second half of the week.

The Cavs get to stay home and face the Chicago Bulls on Friday night, which will be a tough test for a struggling Cleveland team against MVP Derrick Rose and his pals.

The Atlanta Hawks are next on the docket on Saturday, as Cleveland go out to Georgia for the second of the back to back. The Hawks are currently 11-4 and are playing far better than a lot of people expected, even boasting a possible MVP candidate of their own, though not quite of the Rose caliber. That one might prove even more troublesome to the Cavs than the home draw against Chicago.

Like it was said before, Cleveland would probably be plenty happy with a 1-1 split over the weekend like they had earlier in the week.
