The NBA schedule on Friday, Nov. 9, has 13 games including the Houston Rockets visiting the Memphis Grizzlies on NBATV and the Utah Jazz headed to Denver to face the Nuggets.

The Phoenix Suns will be hosting the young and explosive Cleveland Cavaliers and their promising backcourt of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters on Friday. The Cavs are 2-3 and Irving has led the team in scoring twice while Waiters has done it once. Irving is averaging 24.6 points, 6.2 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game and the Suns will have all they can handle trying to keep him from continuing his early season tear. Waiters is producing solid numbers with a little over 15 points per game, including a career-high 28 points in a win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

There will be nine games played on Saturday including the Dallas Mavericks traveling to Charlotte to face the Bobcats on NBATV.

The Suns will play the Jazz on the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday and will have to deal with a deep frontcourt consisting of Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. The Jazz are 2-3 and will also be on the second day of a back-to-back.

On Sunday, there are five games on the schedule, highlighted by the Memphis Grizzlies hosting the Miami Heat.
