A valiant effort from Cleveland, but not enough against the soaring Blazers.
LeBron James: A
35 points, 14 rebounds and six assists? The tough missed layup at the end dropped this from an A+ to an A.
Kyle Korver: A-
Korver continues to be an effective Robin to LeBron’s Batman, with so many players out.
Jordan Clarkson: B
While his three-point shot wasn’t falling, Clarkson still managed to fill out the box score.
Jeff Green: B-
Green had a bounce-back game, but was still a minus-9 for the night.
George Hill: C
Hill’s lack of aggressiveness as a scorer continues to be frustrating.
John Holland: C
Holland was one of two players that didn’t finish with a negative plus/minus. That has to count for something, right?
Rodney Hood: C-
Hood returned from injury, but didn’t have much of a positive effect on the team in his 18 minutes tonight.
J.R. Smith: C-
Three shot attempts in 27 minutes? Smith wasn’t engaged tonight and it led to a team-worst minus-10.
Ante Zizic: D
Zizic’s box score had zero’s across the line, except for two blocks. The Cavaliers’ biggest player on the active roster has to have a bigger impact right now.
