Game Summary

The Cavaliers continue their three-game homestand on Friday night when they face off against the Brooklyn Nets. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. (ET).

This season at The Q, Cleveland holds the 2nd-best home record in the NBA at 19-5 (.792), which includes an 11-2 mark against the East.

The Wine and Gold will look to bounce back on Friday following three straight losses. Welcoming an Atlantic Division opponent into The Q may just be what the Cavaliers need. The Cavaliers are a perfect 11-0 against the Atlantic Division this season (3-0 vs. TOR, 2-0 vs. PHI, 2-0 vs. NYK, 2-0 vs. BOS, 2-0 vs. BKN).

Cleveland is 9-2 in their last 11 contests against Brooklyn, and have won the last seven games against them at The Q.

Overall, the Cavs are averaging 116.8 points on .487 shooting from the field and 26.8 assists on 42.8 field goals made in their last four games.

Brooklyn will enter Friday's contest having lost 14 of their last 15 games.

A lone bright spot for the Nets has been the play of their center, Brook Lopez. The 9th year big man from Stanford is averaging 20.6 points, 5.1 assists and 1.6 blocks per game.
