The Cleveland Cavaliers will have the honor of hosting the first game of the 2012-13 NBA season. Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers will take on the Washington Wizards at 7 p.m. ET.

The Cavaliers will have to wait awhile to host LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat. The two trips the Heat make to Cleveland will come on March 20 and April 15. The latter is the final home game of the season for Cleveland.

Cleveland has four nationally televised games, three of which are on NBA TV. The other is on ESPN on Dec. 5 and has the Cavaliers hosting the Chicago Bulls.

The season closes for the Cavaliers with a game against the Charlotte Bobcats on April 17.
