Found November 18, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
In the finish to an ugly day of Cleveland sports, the Cavaliers fell victim to an impressive Philadelphia defense in an 86-79 defeat on the road. Stat of the night: The highest-scoring backcourt in the NBA (Irving-Waiters) was limited to just 14 points and 8 turnovers on 6-27 from the field. Both Cleveland sports teams playing at this time of the year are now 2-8. At least we can be excited about the solid nights from youngsters Tristan Thompson (14 pts, 13 rebs) and Tyler Zeller (6 pts, 7 rebs). … So progress?
