NBA Summer League 2012: Cleveland Blows Out New York In Finale, 98-64

The Cleveland Cavaliers concluded their five-game Summer League quest in Las Vegas on Friday afternoon with a huge win, as a Dion Waiters-less squad took down a woeful New York Knicks team in blowout fashion, 98-64.

Sitting out his second straight game with a sore knee, Waiters had to watch from the sidelines while his teammates soared out to a 26-12 advantage over the now-winless Knicks in the opening quarter, and proceeded to never look back. Forward Tristan Thompson led the way offensively with a team-high 13 points on 5-for-7 shooting, despite, rather miraculously, playing a team-low 12 minutes in the game.

Each of the12 Cavs players who set foot on the floor managed to score at least three points, while all except for guards Donald Sloan and D.J. Kennedy were able to create contact and get to the foul line at least once. First-round pick Tyler Zeller also capped off an impressive summer in Vegas on Friday, as the former North Carolina big man recorded 12 points and five rebounds before exiting after just over 12 minutes of action.
