If the Cavaliers' narrow loss to the New York Knicks was a step forward, this was two steps back. The Cavaliers finally had adequate rest and had everybody healthy....and laid a total egg against the Toronto Raptors at home, losing 113-99.
Kyrie Irving scored 23 points and had 7 assists. Anderson Varejao scored 22 points and had 10 rebounds. Tristan Thompson had 10 points and 9 rebounds. But the defense was total garbage. The Cavs made a bunch of random dudes on the Raptors look like Michael Jordan. It sucked. Visit Raptors HQ for their side of the story.
The Cavs try to bounce back tomorrow night in Boston against the slumping Celtics.
