Daniel Gibson Returns As Cavaliers Host Golden State Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers get back to work tonight when the Golden State Warriors invade Quicken Loans Arena.  The Warriors(27-35) are in the midst of a 7-game road trip, with tonight's stop in Cleveland game #6.  Golden State fell to 1-4 on the trip after a 125-117 overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.

The Cavaliers have played better of late but took a bit of a step back on Sunday with a 96-81 home loss to the New Orleans Hornets.  The Cavs did get some good news when coach Byron Scott announced that Daniel Gibson was expected to play tonight.  Baron Davis will suit up as well but will continue to come off the bench for the Cavaliers, who dropped their 50th game of the season Sunday Night. 

"The fans are great here," Davis said. "I've been dying to play in front of this crowd. The fans have been great. With them standing up and the ovation like that, it just makes me want to play my hardest and win as many games as we can with this organization."

Golden State won the first matchup between the two teams, 116-98, on January 7, out west.
