Finally. After what felt like an eternity (but was really 13 days) away from Cleveland, the Cavaliers (6-6) return home to take on the Golden State Warriors (4-8).
For both teams, this is an important, winnable game. Golden State, still trying to get their sea legs under new head coach Mark Jackson, come into this game looking to figure out how to win games on the road. The Warriors...
