2012 NBA schedule: Hawks take on Cavaliers, Pacers back-to-back

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Hawks face the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Friday before facing the Pacers at home on Saturday.

The Atlanta Hawks have a back-to-back this weekend, first heading to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers on Friday before returning home to Philips Arena to face the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

The Hawks head into the weekend with a record of 17-9, good for third-best in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta is coming off a thrilling, 126-119, double-overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, a game in which the Hawks blew a 22-point fourth-quarter lead.

The Cavs come into Friday's game (7:30 p.m. ET) on a two-game winning streak after losing six in a row. Cleveland beat the Washington Wizards, 87-84, on Wednesday in a battle between two of the worst teams in the NBA.

Meanwhile, the Pacers have been on a bit of a hot streak, winning three straight and six out of seven. Indiana had their last game against the Chicago Bulls postponed on Wednesday due to snow, but they will be playing on Friday night against the Phoenix Suns. Saturday's game is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

Every single team in the Southeast Division is playing a Friday/Saturday back-to-back this weekend. The Miami Heat will be on the road against the Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks. The Orlando Magic face the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors. After facing the Magic, the Wizards will travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls. Finally, the Charlotte Bobcats will square off against the Brooklyn Nets and New Orleans Hornets.
