CLEVELAND–The Cavaliers lost their 3rd straight game on Tuesday night, 99-93, at Quicken Loans Arena.
DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 33 points including several key plays down the stretch.
Terrence Ross chipped in with 19 points for the visitors, who have beaten Cleveland twice in 5 days.
The Cavs had 5 players in double figures, led by Kyrie Irving who gunned in 25 points and dished out 9 assists.
Cleveland was missing three players: Anderson Varejao, Dion Waiters and C.J. Miles.
With another game set for Wednesday night in Oklahoma City, it’s quite possible the Cavs will not have their services once again.
Newly-acquired center, Spencer Hawes, scored 15 points for the wine and gold, going 3 for 4 from 3-point distance.
A Terrence Ross three pointer with 3:01 left in the game gave Toronto a 90-89 lead and they held the advantage the rest of the way.
The 6-game win streak the Cavs had seems like a distant memory now.
