CLEVELAND: Anderson Varejao scored 16 points, Kyrie Irving had 10 points and 10 assists and Tristan Thompson had 14 points and 10 rebounds in an easy 93-78 victory Friday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
It was one of the Cavs’ most lopsided wins of the season and the fewest points they’ve surrendered to an opponent all year. The lead was 16 entering the fourth quarter, allowing Mike Brown to bench his starters for the entire fourth quarter.
It was a much-needed victory for a team that had lost its first two games on this five-game homestand. The Bucks are the league’s worst team and have now dropped 10 of their last 11.
