A REMATCH IN CLEVELAND

The Cavs and Dallas Mavericks did not play each other until game No. 66 this season. Now today, in the span of three days, their season series wraps-up, with the second game of it coming in Cleveland.

LAST TIME OUT

Playing shorthanded again - even more so with Kevin Love ruled out before tip - the Cavs got off to a slow start in the first half. They scored 19 in the first quarter and 18 in the second while Dallas opened up a 25-poit halftime lead. The Wine & Gold tried to make it a game in the second half, but the Mav lead was too large to overcome. Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman both scored 20-plus
