Cavaliers Vs. 76ers Final Score: Jodie Meeks Scores Career High 31 Points As Cleveland Loses 103-85

The Cleveland Cavaliers were never really in it on Fan Night on NBA TV against the Philadelphia 76ers, falling by 18, 103-85. The good news for Cavs' fans in the building

Starting for the injured Andre Iguodala, Jodie Meeks scored a career high 31 points on 11-for-16 shooting (7-for-10 from long range). Jrue Holiday added 19 for the 76ers.

The Cavs had five players in double figures and Tristan Thompson added nine on a perfect 3-for-3 shooting night, but the Sixers were 10-for-19 from three-point range and took advantage of the Cavs' 19 turnovers to get over 20 extra shot attempts. Philly led by as many as 19 and it was never closer than 10 after the first half.

Rookie Kyrie Irving had a rough game, shooting only 4-for-13 (he did not have a basket in the second half) and turning it over five times to go along with his seven assists.
