Cavaliers Schedule 2012: Cleveland Begins Back-To-Back Against Bulls

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to right the ship with a weekend back-to-back.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, losers of three consecutive games, host the Central Division-leading Chicago Bulls (29-8) Friday night before heading to Washington to complete the weekend back-to-back on Saturday.

The Bulls have won four straight, the most recent victory being an impressive road victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Chicago is currently ranked second in John Hollinger's Power Rankings, boasting an impressive average margin of victory approaching 10 points.

Cleveland has struggled since the All-Star break, dropping to 27th in Hollinger's Rankings. Fortunately, Washington has also been playing poorly of late, having dropped its last six contests. To make matters even worse for the Wizards, they will likely be without the services of Rashard Lewis (knee), while Nick Young (knee) is also questionable.
