article imageNBA Scores: Cavaliers hand Thunder third straight defeat

By Larry Seely     Feb 26, 2014 in Sports
Oklahoma City - The Cleveland Cavaliers still believe they can make a run in the second half of the NBA season and make the playoffs, well they made believers of Oklahoma City as the Cavs upset the Thunder 114-104 on Wednesday night.
Point guard Kyrie Irving led the way, scoring 14 of his game high 31 points in the final period, helping Cleveland to a surprising win on the road. It was the seventh victory in the last ten games for the Cavaliers as they have moved to within 3.5 games of Atlanta for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.
All five starters scored in double figures, including 19 points and seven rebounds from newly acquired Spencer Hawes. The Cavs outscored the Thunder by 12 points down in the paint, a stat that should have OKC concerned.
This was the third straight loss since the return of Russell Westbrook, not a good sign for a squad trying to record the best record in the NBA and get home court advantage throughout the playoffs, but the team still has time to regroup and get back to their winning ways as the 2013-14 season still has over 20 games remaining on the schedule.
