(Cleveland)-The Cavs have lately lived up to their 2018-2019 tagline "Be the Fight." However, after Jordan Clarkson tied the game at 84, the Oklahoma City Thunder went on a 11-2 4th quarter run to beat the Cavs 95-86.
Cavs fall to 1-10 and the Thunder won their 6th straight game after starting their season 0-4.
Collin Sexton had his first NBA start due to the late George Hill scratch from a sore right shoulder. Sexton was the Cavs leading scorer with 15 points including 9 points in the first half. According to Cavs Head Coach Larry Drew, he pulled some Cavs players aside recently to address some locker room dysfunction.
Coach Drew also said this was gonna be a great test for Sexton who's 19 years old.
Thunder was up by as many as 16 points in the 2nd half but the Cavs fought to make the game competitive against a Russell Westbrook-less Thunder team.
Cavs (1-10) will travel to Chicago to face the Bulls (3-8) Saturday night (8pm on WTAM 1100/FM 106.9) while the Thunder (6-4) will host the Houston Rockets 4-5) Thursday night on TNT.
