Cavaliers Vs. Hawks Final Score: Cleveland Loses Second Stinker In A Row, 121-94

After losing by 39 points to the Chicago Bulls last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers followed that poor performance up with another blow out, getting routed by the Atlanta Hawks 121-94. It's the Cavs' third straight loss.

The Hawks scored 60 points in both halves and shot over 55-percent for most of the night, led by Joe Johnson's 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Josh Smith added eight points and 11 rebounds. Six Hawks in all were in double figures.

The Cavs offense was not all that bad, connecting on 49-percent of their shots and having assists on more than half of them. Kyrie Irving was the leading scorer with 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting; he had seven of the team's 20 turnovers, though.

The Cavs will look to rediscover the win column on Tuesday at Miami.
