WASHINGTON – – Darius Garland had 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers went on a 19-0 run spanning part of each half in a 116-101 rout of the Washington Wizards on Friday night. The Dallas, Miami and Washington wins were on the road.
“These weren’t easy teams. These weren’t necessarily teams that are not making the playoffs,” Cleveland’s Jarrett Allen said. After Bradley Beal’s layup snapped a drought of about 7 1/2 minutes for Washington, Isaac Okoro and Garland made 3-pointers for Cleveland that made it 81-48.
“We’re not satisfied,” Cleveland coach J.B. Bickerstaff said.
Cavaliers: Cleveland’s last 13 opponents have shot under 40% from 3-point range, the longest active streak in the NBA. Washington went 10 of 31.
