The Cleveland Cavaliers only have one game on the schedule this weekend, and it is a Friday matchup against the Phoenix Suns.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a 2-3 start to the 2012 season, and the NBA schedule for this weekend brings the fourth and fifth games on the team's six-game road trip. Cleveland dropped games to the Bucks and Warriors, while they picked up a road win against the Clippers this past week. On Friday they take on the Phoenix Suns (9 p.m. ET, FOX Sports Ohio), and then on Sunday they meet up with Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder (7 p.m. ET, FOX Sports Ohio).

The Houston Rockets take on the Memphis Grizzlies (NBATV, 8 p.m. ET) on Friday night, and then the Utah Jazz match up against the Denver Nuggets (ESPN, 10:30 p.m. ET). On Saturday, the Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Bobcats meet at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBATV.

The Cavs finally finish their road trip on Nov. 13 in Brooklyn, but even after that they get very little relief. Four of the next six games will also be played away from from the Quicken Loans Arena, so the goal for Kyrie Ivring and company over the next few weeks should be to avoid digging a big hole.
