Love and Waiters picked up the slack in absence of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, in Tuesday night's game. Love scored 25 points, including five 3-pointers and Waiters put in 23.
Even though Love banged his knee in the third quarter, he shook it off and continued to play.
Milwaukee rookie and overall No. 2 pick, Jabari Parker, scored 18 points.
The Cavs next game is Wednesday in Cincinnati against the Indiana Pacers (1-2).
