The Cleveland Cavaliers have already won two road games this season after winning just seven games away from Cleveland all of last season. They have a chance to move to an even 3-3 on the road on Tuesday evening in Salt Lake City, but it will be no easy task, as the Jazz are 4-0 at home this season.
Cleveland is looking to recover from their worst loss of the season, a 98-78 drubbing on the road by the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Tuesday's game will mark Cleveland's fourth of a seven-game road trip that started with a 92-77 loss to the Toronto Raptors and ends on Jan. 16 against the Charlotte Bobcats.
On his first major road trip of his NBA career, first overall draft choice Kyrie Irving is coming off one of his best pro games yet, as he scored 21 points on 9-17 shooting along with 4 rebounds and 4 assists in the team's loss to Portland.
The game between the Jazz, 5-3, and Cavaliers, 4-4, is scheduled to start at 9:00 p.m. eastern at EnergySolutions Arena.
