Box Score: Raptors 113, Cavaliers 99

The Cavaliers welcomed Dion Waiters back to the lineup in this one, but it would make little difference as Cleveland once again lost to Cavalier Kryptonite, the Toronto Raptors.

This one was close through 3 quarters, but the Raptors pulled away in the 4th quarter to snap their 11 game road losing streak. The Cavaliers were lead by Kyrie Irving’s 23 points and Anderson Varejao chipped in 22 points and 10 rebounds. The Raptors were lead by Jose Calderon’s 23 points and 4 players scored double digits off the bench.

The Cavaliers also had a brief scare when Varejao had to leave the game with a knee injury. He was able to return, though, and was diagnosed with a bruised knee.

    who isn’t cavalier kryptonite these days?

    the losing is getting a bit old…

  • boomhauertjs

    It seems like the players have tuned out Byron…

  • Wow

    It’s gonna be a long season..

  • mgbode

    I think we are down to the Wizards and teams from LA.

  • Harv 21

    Tuned in just in time to watch a fourth quarter sleepwalk turn into a blowout home defeat. Reminded me of the late Rick Majerus story where he asks the player “What’s wrong with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?” and the player replies “I don’t know and I don’t care.”
    Understand that the roster sucks but once again there’s no defense and lack of full effort from everyone but Andy. That includes Kyrie “My Offense is My Defense” Irving. The team is weak-minded and stops playing when an opponent applies even moderate pressure. Byron Scott is this city’s current sacred cow but something is off right now between coach and players. He better bench guys or do something dramatic to change the attitude. Fratello had some dog crap rosters too but he was able to make his players go all out.

  • Blue_Guybrush

    Trade Waiters.

  • architrance

    If only the Wizards weren’t so god awful, we’d be a lock for the top pick next year.

    .192 winning %, only 1970 & ’81 ended worse for the Cavs. Keep on with the rebuild…

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Chris Grant your on deck for the HOT SEAT!

  • ThatAlex

    This was arguably the Cavs worst game of the season.

  • Wow

    Eventually someone has to be held accountable for this right?
