PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Cleveland Cavaliers were looking to find the key to winning on the road Friday night in Philadelphia after dropping their first three away games of the season.
The Cavs looked good right out of the gate, leading the 76ers 29-14 after the first quarter, but neither the offense nor defense could put together a successful strategy to pull off a win.
The first quarter would be the only time the Cavs would have the upper hand, losing to the 76ers 94-79.
Adding insult to injury, the Cavs’ first-round draft pick Anthony Bennett left the game, clutching his shoulder. Bennett had surgery on his left shoulder last summer. So far, he has underachieved with the Cavs this season, only making one shot.
The Cavs fall to 2-4 on the season. They’ll get a second shot at a win against the 76ers Saturday night when they visit Quicken Loans Arena.
