CLEVELAND– The Cavaliers won their 3rd straight game Tuesday night, 109-99 over the Sacramento Kings.
Rookie Anthony Bennett, who has been much criticized, carved out a fine game for himself, scoring 19 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. It was his first career double-double.
Luol Deng led the Cavs in scoring with 22 points, while Dion Waiters scored 20.
Tristan Thompson had 16 points and 13 rebounds as the big men were competing without Anderson Varejao, who sat out the game. C.J. Miles was also unable to play.
DeMarcus Cousins led the visitors with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
The win was some little revenge for the 44 point posting the Cavs suffered in Sacramento on a recent west coast trip.
The Cavs are back on the court Wednesday night as they travel to Detroit for their final game prior to the NBA All-Star break.
