NBA scores: Cavs slip up at home vs. Kings

USA TODAY Sports

The Cavs shot the ball poorly on Wednesday night and lost their third-straight game. Here's what else happened around the league.

The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped a close game at home on Wednesday night, 97-94, to the Sacramento Kings. Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 22 points, and he also notched six assists and five rebounds. But the Cavs shot only 5-21 from behind the three point line. Jason Thompson led the Kings with 19 points and 10 rebounds, and DeMarcus Cousins chipped in with 18 points and 16 rebounds.

The biggest game of the night in the NBA was the upset in Oklahoma City, where the Thunder fell at home to the Nets, 110-93, after Kevin Durant's ejection. Elsewhere in the Central Division, the Pacers defeated the Wizards, 89-81, and the Bulls got past the Magic, 96-94. The Bucks stumbled, though, dropping a game to the Spurs, 117-110. The Pistons had the night off.

The Cavs will try to avoid their fourth-straight loss when they get back at it on Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.
