The Cavs can't overcome a big night from Philadelphia's bench.
The Cleveland Cavaliers notched their sixth straight loss, falling to the Philadelphia 76ers 86-79 tonight. Spencer Hawes and Nick Young came off the 76ers bench and had big nights with 14 and 13 points respectively as Hawes continues to pick up a lot of minutes with the injury to Andrew Bynum.
The Cavs were led in scoring by Alonzo Gee who finished with 17 points. Anderson Varejao picked up a double-double in the loss with 14 points and 15 rebounds as did Tristan Thompson who had 14 points and 13 rebounds. Kyrie Irving had a bit of an off-night, hitting just four of 14 shots and put away only nine points.
Evan Turner led the 76ers in scoring with 19 points and was an assist away from a double-double. Jrue Holiday finished with 14 points and Jason Richardon joined him in double digits with 12 points.
The Cavs will try go get out of this six game funk by playing the 76ers again on Wednesday before heading to Florida on Friday to face the Orlando Magic.
