Cavaliers (7-24) at Nets (15-14) - Game #32
DEC 29, 2012 1:27p ET
The Cavs’ winning streak came to a halt at two after surrendering the game’s final nine points vs. the Hawks on Friday. As has been the case practically all season, the Cavs now get the honor of playing on the road the night after a tough loss. The Nets are a team in turmoil, firing coach Avery Johnson and replacing him with interim man P.J. Carlesimo a couple days ago. They’re coming off a Friday night hammer job of the Bobcats.
Venue: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y.
TV/Radio: 7 p.m. FOX Sports Ohio and WUAB-TV/WTAM
All-Time Series: Cavs lead, 87-68.

• This is the Cavs’ second (and last) visit to Brooklyn. They lost the first matchup, 114-101.
• Anderson Varejao (right knee contusion) and Daniel Gibson (concussion) are out for the Cavs. Kris Humphries (abdominal strain) is questionable for the Nets.
• Irving has scored 20 or more points in 14 of his 20 games. He’s averaging a team-high 23.2 ppg.
• Byron Scott has 399 career wins. Once he hits 400, he’ll become the eighth active coach to do so -- joining George Karl, Doug Collins, Doc Rivers, Scott Skiles, Gregg Popovich, Rick Carlisle and Rick Adelman.
