[CLEVELAND] — The Cleveland Cavaliers played host to the Minnesota Timberwolves last night and the Cavs did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 116-108 victory. The win bumps Cleveland's record up to 38-16 on the season, while the loss drags Minnesota's down to 21-35. 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.

On this night it was LeBron James leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 25 points, 8 rebounds, 14 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 40 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. 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.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Andrew Wiggins did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Timberwolves. Wiggins's 41 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

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 Timberwolves, 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 Denver Nuggets while the visiting Timberwolves will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
