Cavaliers Vs. Jazz Score Update: Utah Holds 15-Point Lead At Half

The Cleveland Cavaliers, losers of five straight, are not making their fans at the Q at all confident that the losing streak will end tonight against the Utah Jazz, who are on their second of five straight on the road. Utah leads at the half, 56-41.

Cleveland shot just 34-percent in the first half, despite hitting 38-percent from three-point range. A big reason for the shooting woes was rookie Kyrie Irving, who was 0-for-6. While he did have three first half assists, he was held to just one point.

Utah took care of the ball in the first 24 minutes, turning it over only three times and rebounding it 31 times to Cleveland's 18. Al Jefferson is the Jazz leading scorer with 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting.
