CLEVELAND (AP) — Brandon Knight scored 26 points Wednesday night and the Milwaukee Bucks led most of the way in a 96-80 win over the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers, who played without LeBron James for the second straight game.
James was sidelined because of a sore left knee, an injury that also forced him to miss Tuesday’s game against Atlanta. Kevin Love was out with back spasms, and the Cavaliers went on to their fourth loss in five games.
O.J. Mayo scored 15 points for the Bucks, and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists.
