The Cavaliers defeated the defending NBA Champions on Saturday night, beating the Dallas Mavericks 91-88. A huge third quarter for Byron Scott’s club was difference, as Cleveland stormed out of the locker room to take the lead. Kyrie Irving led the Cleveland comeback, scoring a team-high 20 points while dishing seven assists. Antawn Jamison added 19 points and Anderson Varejao continued his incredible streak of play, grabbing 17 rebounds and adding 17 points. It was a huge win for the Cavs, and a solid bounce back effort from the loss in Orlando on Friday.
