The Cavaliers had such high hopes against the short-handed Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night at The Q.
Then they fell flat.
Klay Thompson had a career-high 32 points, Jarrett Jack added 26 points and tied his career high with 12 assists and David Lee had 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Warriors, missing three starters and a key reserve, clobbered the Cavs, 108-95.
There went the Cavs' chances for their first four-game winning streak under coach Byron Scott, as well as their first non-losing month since he took over in 2010-11. The magical week that was – three straight wins for the team and an All-Star berth and NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week award for Kyrie Irving – was gone quicker than Thompson's release at the 3-point line.
