The Cleveland Cavaliers winning streak was short lived, the Cavaliers fell to the Indiana Pacers last night 96-81. It looked as though Kyrie Irving could keep up with the Pacers in the game. I even heard Austin Carr the Cavaliers play by play man talk about Irving’s legs being fatigued. The Cavaliers got another great game out of C.J. Miles, he had another night of scoring 28 points but it wasn’t enough to lift the Cavaliers to their second win in a row. Kyrie couldn’t keep up and he only scored 9 points in the contest.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are now sitting at 5-18 on the season. The team still struggles at defense and they have to find a way to play the way they did against the Lakers more often. Tristan Thompson has to pick up his offense, he only scored 4 points in the game.The Cavaliers have to find a way to get Thompson to produce more in the game to justify giving him the starts.
Samardo Samuels led the way in bench points with 10 and it was a slow night for Anderson Varejao who only scored 4 points in the game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have got to find a way to get some consistency. Losing 18 games already isn’t what Cavs fans thought this season would be. Even Alonzo Gee couldn’t get it going in Indiana, in the 31 minutes he played he only scored 1 point. Wow, you can see the Pacers knew how to take the Cleveland Cavaliers off their game last night……
