In a match-up of teams with ailing backcourts, the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers host the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Both teams will be without each of their starting guards, respectively, as Derrick Rose, Richard Hamilton, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters all sit out with different issues, though it's still a rather big game for Cleveland.
The Cavaliers have been in a bit of a tail spin since beginning their season with a victory over the Washington Wizards, winning just three of the other 17 games they've played. Most of Cleveland's games have been played away from home, where a young Cavs team has understandably struggled, though the team is just 2-4 at home.
The Bulls have won nine straight games against the Cavaliers, including a 115-86 blowout in Cleveland on Nov. 2. They only play two more times this season after Wednesday night's game, with both of those being played at the United Center in Chicago.
Wednesday's game is being broadcast by Fox Sports Ohio from Quicken Loans Arena starting at 8 p.m. ET.
