The newly crowned All-Star was on the bench, watching. The ones who started the game were cheering boisterously from the sidelines.
And the new guys and the reserves stayed on the court chipping away throughout the fourth quarter.
By the end, it was a ragtag group of Cavaliers reserves and two newly acquired players that overturned a monstrous deficit, locked down on defense and helped Cleveland outlast Milwaukee, 113-108, in front of 15,098 at The Q on Friday night. It was the Cavaliers' second straight victory, a feat that has only been accomplished one other time this season, and it pushed them to 12-32.
New guys, reserves, and oh yeah, Kyrie Irving help Cleveland Cavaliers top Milwaukee 113-108
