Cavaliers Vs. Spurs Final Score: Cleveland Drops Eighth Straight, 125-90

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost their eighth straight game on Tuesday night, falling to the San Antonio Spurs by 35, 125-90. While it is now eight straight losses for the Cavs, the Spurs have won eight straight.

The Cavs welcomed back rookie Kyrie Irving from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss a game, but he was just 5-for-15 and had three turnovers opposite his five assists. Antawn Jamison was the Cavs' leading scorer with 15 points on 5-for-13 shooting.

The Spurs were led by Patty Mills, who scored 20 points off the bench. Tony Parker and Daniel Green each scored 19.

Cleveland will have to get over this one quickly because they're hopping on a flight to Milwaukee to play the Bucks tomorrow night.
