Kevin Love scored 25 points, Cedi Osman added 23 and the Cavs pulled off their most impressive win in what’s become a turnaround season, 115-99 over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. “We take on all challenges. We don’t run from anybody. We don’t back down. We give everybody our best shot.”
The Cavs made 19 3-pointers – seven in the second quarter – and won for the eighth time in nine games.
Cleveland regrouped after a slow start, tightened its perimeter defense and built an eight-point halftime lead. The Cavs then opened the second half with an 11-2 run that included three 3-pointers in a 48-second span by Garland, Mobley and Dean Wade.
The Cavs pushed their lead to 93-72 before Garland went out briefly with back tightness.
After the Bucks made six 3s in the first quarter, the Cavs did them one better with seven in the second to take a 65-57 lead at the half.
