CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A tough stretch didn’t get any better for the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday.

Cleveland dropped its 6th straight on the road, 110-88 in Boston.

Gordon Hayward returned from a broken hand to score 14 for Boston, which led 53-40 at the half.

Kemba Walker led the Celtics with 22 points.

The Cavs shot just 39% from the field and 7-of-31 from three-point land.

Cleveland’s lone bright spot was center Tristan Thompson, who had 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Next for the Cavs is a tough back-to-back with Houston in town Wednesday, followed by a Thursday trip to San Antonio.
