Cavaliers Vs. Sixers Score Update: Philadelphia Ahead 53-49 At Half

Fresh off Tuesday's whipping at the hands of the Detroit Pistons, the Cleveland Cavaliers look like a vastly different team on Wednesday, and trail 53-49 to Philadelphia after two quarters of play.

Cleveland has shot a sparkling 54.1% as a team in the first 24 minutes, and is 7-of-11 from the free-throw line. Rookie guard Kyrie Irving, who has been out since April 3rd, made his triumphant return to the court for the Cavs in this game, and has produced seven points with three assists in 12 minutes on the floor.

Point forward Andre Iguodala leads the way for the Sixers with 11 points, five rebounds and five assists, and has also drained 3-of-6 from behind the arc. After such a hot start, Iguodala will be looking for his second triple-double of the shortened season if he can continue his pace.

Rookie big man Tristan Thompson leads all players with 12 points at the break, and is 5-of-6 shooting with three rebounds against Philadelphia's veteran duo of Elton Brand and Spencer Hawes down low. With only two offensive rebounds as a team however, Thompson and company will need to create more second chance opportunities in the second half for the Cavs to take control of the game.
