Cavs Embark on First Long Road Trip of the Season

The Cavaliers begin their first long road trip of the season Friday night in New York.

Cleveland is 2-1 on the road this season, with wins at Memphis and Philadelphia, and an opening night loss in Chicago.

The Cavs are 5-0 at home this season, including their last four games played at the Q. They look to extend their seven game win streak on the road.

The Cavs play three games in five days with stops in NYC, Milwaukee, and Detroit, who all figure to be in the mix for playoff seeds in the Eastern Conference.
