Unfortunately Kyrie Irving didn’t do so well on his test. CJ Miles came into this game picking up right where he left off. He scored 11 of the Cavaliers first 13 points and the Cavs bench played the best quarter of their season in the 2nd quarter. The Cavaliers were up 54-38 with about 4 minutes left in the first half. It looked like the Cavaliers would be cruising to another win. Then the bottom completely dropped out. Kyrie Irving had one of the worst games of his career, Alonzo Gee was about as bad as he’s ever been, Anderson Varejao wasn’t much of a factor on offense, and the Cavaliers as a team scored 23 points in the 2nd half. Yeah, that’s right….23 points. CJ Miles finished with 28 points as the lone bright spot for the team. Samardo Samuels was the only other Cav in double figures with 10 points. Best to just forget this one and move on to the next one. 4 straight back-to-backs for the Cavaliers, so this isn’t going to get any easier. 1 2 3 4 T CLE 29 29 12 11 81 IND 25 27 28 16 96   Cleveland Starters Pos Min FG 3Pt FT +/- Off Reb Ast TO Stl BS BA PF Pts C.J.
