WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Friday.
WHERE: Quicken Loans Arena.
BROADCASTS: TV - FS Wisconsin. Radio - AM-620.
About the Cavaliers: Cleveland guard C.J. Miles had 23 points by halftime Wednesday night in Indianapolis, but the Cavaliers scored a total of 23 points in the second half in a 96-81 defeat to the Indiana Pacers. That came one night after Kyrie Irving returned to the lineup and the Cavaliers beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 100-94, at Quicken Loans Arena. Irving was out the previous 11 games with a broken finger but had 28 points, 11 assists and six rebounds in a sparkling return against the Lakers. Anderson Varejao leads the NBA in rebounding at 14.8 per game and could be making a serious bid for an all-star selection. Cleveland took the Bucks to the wire in Milwaukee's home opener before Brandon Jennings hit a buzzer-beating shot to give the Bucks a 105-102 victory on Nov. 3.
