The Cavaliers competed, but in the end, they were no match for a San Antonio Spurs team that looks poised for a deep playoff run. The Spurs shot 55% and connected on eight three pointers as they defeated the Cavaliers 114-98 in the AT&T Center. The Spurs were led by their bench of Manu Ginobili (20 points, 9-of-12 shooting) and Stephen Jackson (17 points) as their bench outscored the Cavaliers’ bench 62-27. Antawn Jamison paced the Cavaliers with 21 points, and their starting backcourt shined with Kyrie Irving adding 19 points and Manny Harris posting 14. The Cavaliers are now 21-42 on the season and face the Grizzlies in Memphis tomorrow night.
