2012 NBA schedule: Cavs get rematch with 76ers this week

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Cavaliers have only one game this week, but it's a rematch with the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, one game after the Sixers defeated them 86-79 in Philly.

The Cleveland Cavaliers only have one game this week, and it's a rematch with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Cavs fell to the Sixers in Philly on Sunday night, 86-79, and will have a chance to even the score on Wednesday night at home.

The Cavs shot only 35.7 percent from the floor on Sunday, a big reason why they came away with the loss. They'll need a much better game from Kyrie Irving, who had an uncharacteristic 4-14 shooting performance, and only had nine points. Almost every player had a poor shooting night, but probably none more than rookie Dion Waiters, who shot 2-13 from the floor.

They'll also need to put the clamps on former Ohio State star Evan Turner, who burned them on Sunday for 19 points, nine assists, and six rebounds. The Sixers had five players in double figures for scoring, and shot 45 percent from three-point range.
