76ers Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: Cleveland Drops Second Straight Without Kyrie Irving, 99-84

The Cleveland Cavaliers were already going to be without rookie Kyrie Irving due to a concussion, but they were also without Anderson Varejao on Saturday night after the forward suffered a wrist injury during Friday night's loss. As a result, the Cavs were no match for the Philadelphia 76ers, losing 99-84.

Cleveland shot just 37-percent for the game and never recovered from a 58-41 halftime deficit, although they outscored the Sixers 43-41 in the second half.

Antawn Jamison scored 20 points and Ramon Sessions had 19 points and eight assists for the Cavs. Jrue Holliday led the way for the Sixers with 20 points. Philadelphia only turned the ball over six times and shot 43-percent from beyond the arc.

Cleveland does not play until Wednesday, when they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers.
