NEW YORK CITY — The Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t able to hold on against the Brooklyn Nets Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Forward C.J. Miles gave a strong performance off the bench with 33 points, the second best game total overall and highest for the Cavs. He also posted two boards. Guard Kyrie Irving had a lackluster night with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting, 4 rebounds and 7 assists.
