Philadelphia
Cleveland

[CLEVELAND] — The Cleveland Cavaliers played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night and the homeside took care of business. A 122-105 win has the Cavs and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Cleveland's record up to 48-27 on the season, while the loss drags Philadelphia's down to 28-48. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Cavaliers. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was LeBron James leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 34 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 30 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, Kyrie Irving did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful 76ers. Irving's 24 points, 1 rebounds and 9 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Cavaliers walking away victorious was Cleveland's ability to limit Philadelphia's offensive output. By holding the Sixers to less than they usually produce the Cavaliers made their life considerably easier.

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