The Cleveland Cavaliers dipped back below .500 again less than 24 hours after they got back to the mark with a 10-point loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. It was the Cavs' second game of a back-to-back.
Cleveland trailed by double digits in the second quarter, but managed to cut the deficit to five at the half and just two going into the fourth quarter. However, it was all Warriors in the fourth as they outscored the Cavs 24-16 in the final frame to come away with the 105-95 win, their second straight after defeating the Pistons on Sunday night.
Kyrie Irving finished with 18 points after having 11 in the first half. He also finished with eight rebounds and five assists.
David Lee torched the Cavs for 29 points on 13-for-20 shooting. Nate Robinson added 17.
The Cavs get a couple days off before trying to get back to .500 on Friday against the first place Chicago Bulls.
