NBA scores: Cavaliers drop two to Florida teams

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland lost two games this weekend, but the losses were by a combined six points.

The Cleveland Cavaliers struggled over the weekend, losing two road games to a pair of Florida opponents.

On Friday night, the Cavs fell to the Orlando Magic, 108-104. Without star guard Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters led Cleveland's offense. He finished with 25 points and five assists. He was helped out by Anderson Varejao, who recorded 19 points and 17 rebounds.

The Cavs were done in by the Magic behind the 3-point line, however. Orlando finished 11-for-21 from 3-point land. The teams were tied going into the fourth quarter, but the Magic grabbed the late win.

As close as Friday night's loss was, Saturday's was even closer. The Cavaliers lost to the Miami Heat, 110-108, on the road.

The Cavs had a strong first half, but the Heat had an even better second half. Miami outscored Cleveland in the second half, 62-49.

Waiters and Jeremy Pargo led the Cavs with 16 points each. Watiers had a rebound and two assists, while Pargo had seven assists on the night. Varejao had another big game on the boards, scoring 10 points and pulling down 15 rebounds.
