Reserve guard Brandon Goodwin matched his career-high with 21 points, Jarrett Allen added 16 and Cleveland shook off an ugly road loss – and being without point guard Darius Garland – by rallying to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 93-90 on Monday night. “He’s just a ballplayer. He loves to chase the game, and good things happen to people who do that.”
Love added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Cleveland, which trailed by nine in the fourth quarter but made enough plays down the stretch to hold off the Pelicans.
It wasn’t pretty, but the Cavs weren’t interested in style points. Green said Ingram is “Getting better and better.” Ingram is one of just three NBA players averaging at least 22 points, six rebounds, five assists and three or less turnovers.
