Cleveland vs. Memphis Final Score: Grizzlies Power Past Cavaliers, 84-78

The Cleveland Cavaliers once again battled with one of the best teams in the NBA, only to fall short of a victory. On Monday night, the Cavs gave the Memphis Grizzlies everything they could handle, but ultimately lost 84-78.

The Cleveland Cavaliers just couldn't execute down the stretch. Sound familiar? That's because it's been the same exact thing for the past three games. Just like in their games against the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat, the Cavs led for much of the game but stumbled towards the end. The result was another road loss, 84-78. The Cavs now stand at 3-11 on the season.

Anderson Varejao was once again a total monster. He hauled in 22 rebounds (8 offensive) to go along with 15 points. If this man isn't an all-star, it's a damn crime.

Offensively, the team came back to earth and couldn't hit any threes. Dion Waiters failed to hit a three pointer in a game for the first time this season. He did, however, look strong attacking the basket and running the offense at times. It's a work in progress, but there certainly seems to be progress.

These late-game collapses could probably be fixed by a super talented, intelligent point guard with god-like handles. If only the Cavaliers could get one of those...

The Memphis Grizzlies front court combined for 38 points and 14 rebounds. Despite those numbers, I thought Tristan Thompson played a hell of a game. Thompson and Tyler Zeller struggled with foul trouble all night long.

The Cavaliers are back at it tomorrow night at home (finally) when they host the Phoenix Suns. Go Cavs.
