NBA scores: Cavaliers drop both weekend contests

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers faced the Minnesota Timberwolves and Detroit Pistons over the weekend and dropped both matchups, falling to 4-17 on the season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped both contests this past weekend, their fourth and fifth consecutive losses, to drop to 4-17 on the season.

On Friday, Cleveland traveled to Minneapolis, Minn. to face the Timberwolves and were run out of the building by Kevin Love and co., losing, 91-73. Love scored 36 points and added 13 rebounds to lead Minnesota, while Andrei Kirilenko contributed with eight points, seven rebounds and six assists. Alonzo Gee led the Cavaliers in scoring with 16 points. Anderson Varejao continued his masterful season as a rebounder, grabbing 14 boards.

The Cavs tried to right the ship on Saturday against the Detroit Pistons but had no such luck, falling at home, 104-97, and extending their losing streak to five games. Varejao scored 16 points and recorded 13 rebounds, and Jeremy Pargo scored 24 points of his own. But Brandon Knight's 30-point effort was too much for the Cavs.

Cleveland's 4-17 record has them ahead of only the Washington Wizards, who sit at 2-15, in the Eastern Conference.
