The Cavaliers got solid efforts from Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao, but lost to the Bucks for the ninth consecutive time.

The Cavaliers committed a season-high 27 turnovers in suffering their ninth-straight loss to the Bucks on Friday, falling 90-86 to remain in the Central Division's cellar.

The Cavs got a team-high 26 points from Kyrie Irving and 18 rebounds from Anderson Varejao, but little production elsewhere. C.J. Miles and Daniel Gibson chipped in 17 and 11 points, respectively. Monta Ellis scored a game-high 33 points for the division-leading Bucks, who have won four straight, while Brandon Jennings chipped in 16 points and eight assists on 5-for-20 shooting.

The Cavs are now 2-8 in their last 10 games and are 0-7 in division games. Elsewhere in the division, the third-place Pacers took down the 76ers, 95-85, while the fourth-place Pistons took the Nets into double-overtime but fell on a buzzer-beating jumper from Joe Johnson, 107-105.

Around the NBA, the Lakers stopped a four-game losing skid with a 102-96 win over the Wizards, the Magic dropped the Warriors, 99-85, and the Raptors trounced the Mavericks, 95-75.
