Tristan Thompson DOMINATED for stretches and the Cavs' defense fell apart when he left the court (per usual). He finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds and was a +25 in his 37 minutes. Tyler Zeller also had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Kyrie Irving had a bit of a quiet night, but finished with 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. Dion Waiters scored a team-high 18 points on 9 of 17 shooting.

Monta Ellis carried the Milwaukee Bucks and was the only Bucks player in double figures with 37 points. Brandon Jennings was held to just 7 points on 3 of 13 shooting. Larry Sanders had just 2 points but 12 rebounds and 5 blocked shots.

Against all odds, Luke Walton put together some really awesome minutes for the Cavaliers. He set season-highs in minutes, points, rebounds, assists, and steals with 7-6-4-3 in 24 minutes. It was remarkable.

The Cleveland defense was much better tonight, holding the Bucks to just 39.2% shooting from the field.
