After tonight’s game against the Mavericks, the Cavs will come home next week for a three-game homestand. The road trip has been a struggle so far — the team is 0-2 with losses to the 76ers and Magic — but it has a good chance to end on a good night tonight. Dallas has been one of the worst teams in the league and Luka Doncic is struggling. Plus, both Larry Nance Jr. and Tristan Thompson might play. So, maybe this road trip won’t be all losses.
