After several games on the road, the Cleveland Cavaliers returned to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Sunday to take on the Utah Jazz. Well, the Jazz are the cops as they brought Cleveland’s streak to an end, defeating the Cavs 109-108.
This game was a slugfest and it’s a testament to how the Cavs are able to hang with the league’s elite, this time being the Jazz.
The Jazz outscored the Cavs 31-27 in the third quarter and it felt like all momentum was in Utah’s corner heading into the fourth. Rookie big man Evan Mobley had a key block on Donovan Mitchell to give Cleveland one final chance to win the game.
