The Cavs could have started off the week on a better note.

After trailing by as many as 41 points, the Cavaliers lost to the Timberwolves on Monday by a final score of 127-99. LeBron James was held to a season-low 10 points in the loss. He checked out of the game for final time with 4:03 left in the third quarter.

Jeff Green lead the Cavaliers with 22 points off the bench with Kyle Korver adding 19 points (and moving into fourth place all-time in three-pointers made) and Dwyane Wade adding 13 points. Isaiah Thomas scored nine points before being ejected.

The Cavs have now given up 127 points — the most they’ve given up this season — in two consecutive games. They have also lost five of their last seven games overall with each of the losses coming on the road.

Cleveland next plays on Thursday against the Toronto Raptors.
