Cavaliers Vs. Trailblazers Final Score: Cleveland Falls In Portland 98-78

Cleveland's third game of a seven game road trip did not go as smoothly as Saturday night's win over Minnesota in Minneapolis. The Cavaliers were rather listless in a 98-78 loss at the Portland Trailblazers. Tristan Thompson and Omri Casspi each had 10 points to reach double figures for the Cavs.

Kyrie Irving had 21 points, but the Cavs did very little else offensively as they shot worse than 37% from the field. They were an even more dismal 3 of 24 from 3-point range for 12.5%. Irving added four assists and four rebounds for a solid all-around game, but 24 turnovers for Cleveland made for a sloppy game with little offensive flow.

LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 28 points, and Wesley Matthews, who had 24 points, almost combined to outscored Cleveland by themselves. Gerald Wallace added another 16 points for Portland. Raymond Felton's seven assists also regulated Portland's offense, as Cleveland fell further behind Chicago and Indiana in the Central Division.
