Cavaliers Schedule 2012: Cleveland Meet New Jersey And Boston Over The Weekend

Nobody on the Cleveland Cavaliers except for Kyrie Irving seem to be enjoying their basketball right now, with only a single win in their last five games. That win was their most recent game against the New York Knicks, but the Cavs will still need to string together a bit more of a winning streak if they want any hope at reaching a playoff seed in this shortened NBA season.

The weekend starts for the Cavs as they welcome the New Jersey Nets to Cleveland. The currently 6-13 Nets don't have all that much going for them, but similarly to the Cavs they have a very exciting rookie named MarShon Brooks lighting it up in Jersey right now. It's unclear as to whether he'll be able to play the rookie showdown against Irving as he currently is struggling with Achilles tendon pain. The game in Cleveland will be Friday night at 7:30 PM EST.

Sunday brings the Cavs to Boston in their first of two games against the Boston Celtics in a row. Boston is currently 8-9 thanks to a mixture of sloppy play and injuries. They did have quite a magical comeback in their last game against the Orlando Magic so it should be interesting to see how they respond.
