Cavaliers vs. Nets: Game time, TV schedule, preview and more

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Kyrie Irving has made a good case for 'elite point guard' status' so far this season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers make their first trip to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday. The Cavs are coming off three straight losses, while the Nets have won two games in a row.

Cleveland has gotten solid play from its youngsters in the backcourt, led by second-year point guard Kyrie Irving and rookie Dion Waiters. Irving is averaging 22.9 points per game, along with 6.3 assists and 4.1 rebounds. Through his first seven NBA games, Waiters has averaged 15.4 points, though much of that output came in two earlier games this season in which he scored 23 and 28 points.

Brook Lopez has been Brooklyn's leading scorer, averaging 16.4 points per game. Deron Williams leads the Nets with 7.2 assists per game. Newly acquired Joe Johnson has failed to deliver the scoring prowess that made him a six-time All-Star. In five games, Johnson has averaged just 13.6 points per game.
