The Cleveland Cavaliers are riding a two-game losing streak and continue a seven-game road trip on Thursday as they head to Phoenix to take on the Suns. They haven't been playing exceptionally poorly this season, and that's mostly due to the help of Kyrie Irving. He's been playing well and leads all rookies in scoring and is second in assists. That being said, it wasn't enough to stop the Cavs from losing their last outing, a 113-105 defeat at the hands of the Utah Jazz, or the one before that, a 10-point loss to the Portland Trailblazers.
They'll take on a Phoenix Suns team who are glad to be home and will be confident, especially with Steve Nash playing well again. The Suns have lost their last three outings on the road, and have won their last three outings at home. With a five-game road trip looming, they'll be hard to beat at home as they pick up wins wherever they can.
Game Date/Time: 9:00 p.m. ET, Thursday, Jan. 12
Location: US Airways Center, Phoenix, AZ
TV Schedule: FSOH
Radio: WTAM 1100
