NBA scores: Cavaliers snap a 6-game skid

USA TODAY Sports

Dion Waiters scored 18 to lead Cleveland past Milwaukee and snap a six-game losing streak.

It was a fruitful weekend for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as the team snapped a six-game losing streak, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks, 94-82, in Milwaukee on Saturday night. For Cleveland, it was their sixth win of the season, and their first over the Bucks in three tries.

Monta Ellis went off for 37 for Milwaukee, but was unable to get any help from his teammates. No other Milwaukee player reached double-digits, as the Bucks shot only 39% from the field and were outrebounded by seven.

Meanwhile, Cleveland featured a well balanced attack. Dion Waiters led the team in scoring with 18, while two players, Tristan Thompson (14 points and 14 rebounds), and Tyler Zeller (11 points and ten rebounds), came away with double doubles. CJ Miles (16), Kyrie Irving (15), and Alonzo Gee (10) also scored double digits for the Cavaliers.

Cleveland is off until Wednesday, Dec. 26, when they will face the Wizards in Washington. That game will take place at 7 p.m. ET at the Verizon Center.
