Cleveland (WOIO) - It took them 50-plus games, and cost General Manager Chris Grant his job, but the Cavaliers are finally heating up, winning their third straight game on Tuesday night, 109-99 at Quicken Loans Arena.
The win is even more impressive when you consider the Cavs lost to the Kings in Sacramento a month ago by 44 points. But this time, the Cavaliers jumped on them early, built up a 12-pt halftime lead, and refused to let it slip away.
Luol Deng led the way with a game-high 22, while Anthony Bennett recorded his first career double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Dion Waiters added 20 points.
DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 21.
