Philadelphia
Cleveland

[CLEVELAND] — The Cleveland Cavaliers played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 112 to 108 Cavs victory. The win bumps Cleveland's record up to 13-2 on the season, while the loss drags Philadelphia's down to 4-13. Though a win's a win and Cavaliers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from LeBron James led all players in the contest and his 26 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 41 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - James included - and the most important part is that the Cavaliers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining James in the winning effort was Kyrie Irving. Had it not been for Irving rounding out the Cavs's attack with 39 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Cleveland's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting 76ers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Cavs will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Cavs will be a date with the Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting 76ers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Toronto Raptors.
