Raptors vs. Cavs: Game time, TV schedule, and preview

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

The Cavaliers will return home on Tuesday to face the Toronto Raptors.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost eight of their last nine games, but will attempt to snap a three-game losing streak at home against Toronto on Tuesday.

After losing on the road to the New York Knicks on Saturday, the Cavs will return home for one game before going back on the road on Wednesday. While Cleveland is just 5-20 on the season, the Cavs are 3-7 at home this season. While Cleveland has lost three straight games, the 6-19 Raptors enter the game off back-to-back wins.

Shooting guard DeMar DeRozan leads the Raptors in scoring at 18.0 points per game. He isn't the only scoring threat, however, as Andrea Bargnani (16.0 ppg) and Kyle Lowry (15.8 ppg) are also capable offensively. While the Cavs rank 24th in the league in scoring, they may have some additional opportunities against Toronto. The Raptors are 26th in the league defensively, allowing 101.2 points per game. Cleveland's Anderson Varejao could also be in for a big night. Varejao leads the league in rebounding and will go against a Raptors team that ranks 23rd in the league in rebounds per game.

Tuesday's game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox Sports Ohio.
