The Cavs are starting a streak of the wrong time.
On Wednesday night, the Wine and Gold lost their second game in a row 115-105 to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Cleveland got a strong scoring performance from rookie Kyrie Irving, but that was not enough to overcome the surge in the second half by the home team. Irving scored 28 points, but former Cavalier Drew Gooden’s triple double sparked the Bucks to the win. Gooden scored 15 points, pulled down 10 boards and had 13 assists for his first ever triple double.
Ersan Ilyasova had 22 points for the Bucks before fouling out. The home team won its fourth game in a row.
Not a bad night for the Bucks, who have been battling the Cavs and Knicks for the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Cavs are off until Sunday when the Atlanta Hawks come to the Q.
