Cavaliers Vs. Thunder: Cleveland Storms Into Oklahoma City After Big Win In Denver

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to win two straight games against tough Western foes as they face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.

A surprise win over the Denver Nuggets for the Cavaliers in Colorado gave Cleveland their first win in quite a while. If the Cavs want to go for two wins in a row, they'll have to get past an even better opponent on Friday night when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder, arguably the best team in the entire Western Conference.

Cleveland will have to look for another big performance by Kyrie Irving, who has turned quickly into a star for the young Cavs and scored the game winning lay up in the final seconds against Denver. Against a team with one of the best players in the world in Kevin Durant, having a player like Irving to spark a performance is vital to Cleveland's chances for success. They'll need all the help they can get, the Thunder are 17-1 at home this season.

The game will be at Oklahoma City Arena at 8:00 P.M. Eastern time.
