Cavs Fall to Boston, 103-100
BOSTON, MA — The Cleveland Cavaliers rallied late in the game Saturday against the Boston Celtics, but despite cutting Boston’s 22-point lead down to a single shot, the Cavs found themselves with another loss, 103-100.
The Cavs entered Saturday’s contest under the microscope, with speculation mounting surrounding Andrew Bynum’s suspension. The announcement was made two hours before game time. Bynum was suspended for “conduct detrimental to the team” and did not travel to Boston.
Cleveland was down 59-44 at the half, but came back late in the fourth quarter. Down just three points, Earl Clark could not squeeze off a final three-pointer.
Boston’s win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Celtics.
Kyrie Irving lead the Cavs with 32 points. It was his eighth time in the last 10 games he’s scored 20 points or more.
Dion Waiters and Jarrett Jack followed up with 17 points and 14 points, respectively.
The loss marks four in a row for Cleveland. The team will play the Golden State Warriors Sunday at home.
