Colin Sexton had 24 points and Kevin Love added 18, but it was not enough as Spurs star DeMar DeRozan scored 21 of his game high 25 points in the second half to lead the Spurs to a 116-110 victory on Thursday night over the Cavs, where it was Manu Ginobili night as the Spurs retired his number in a post game ceremony.
After a rough first half for the Spurs where they scored 44 points, they came out hot in the 3rd quarter scoring 40 points in the quarter while shooting 70 percent from the field. The Cavs cut the Spurs lead to one at 111-110 late in the 4th, but Spurs guard Patty Mills drilled a three with 14 seconds remaining to end any hope of the Cavs pulling out a victory.
This was the Cavaliers fifth straight loss to the Spurs with their last victory coming on March 12, 2015.
A milestone was reached for Cavalier forward Kevin Love as he became the 8th player in NBA history to score 12,000 points, grab 7,000 rebounds, and making 1,000 three pointers!
