Losers of four straight, the Cleveland Cavaliers hope to find their way back into the win column this weekend with games on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Cavaliers, 2-6, host the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Mavericks are out to a 5-4 start without their superstar Dirk Nowitzki and have relied on a cast of newcomers while Nowitzki recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery.

On Sunday, Cleveland hits the road to take on the Philadelphia 76ers at 6 p.m. ET. The Sixers are 4-4 and have had an up-and-down season thus far, giving the Detroit Pistons their first win of the year on Wednesday.

It will be a challenging weekend for the rest of the Central Division as the Bulls face the Clippers and the Pacers take on the Knicks.
