CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -The San Antonio crowd was ready for a celebration, as the Spurs retired Manu Ginobili’s #20 on Thursday night, but the Cavaliers came close to spoiling the party, leading the Spurs by nine at the half before falling, 116-110.

Collin Sexton continued his strong second half of his rookie season, throwing down a team-high 24 points, but it wasn’t enough to hold off the 8th-seed in the Western Conference.

The Cavs will play four more on the road before returning home for the final two games of the season.
