CLEVELAND, OH -- The Cleveland Cavaliers jumped out to a 18-6 lead, before giving up an atrocious 34-8 run to the visiting Washington Wizards. The Wizards never looked back after gaining the lead, surpassing the 100-point mark in the third quarter and rolling past the Cavaliers by the final score of 124-112.

Washington relied heavily on Bradley Beal throughout the game, and beal answered the bell. Coming off of a 38 point performance last night in Miami, Beal continued to put on a show, lighting up the Cavaliers defense for 36 points on an impressive 15-22 shooting from the field. Washington forward Davis Bertans hurt the Cavaliers from beyond the arc, knocking down four three balls en route to 17 points.

The Cavaliers had three scorers notch at least 20-points despite falling short to the Wizards. Collin Sexton shot an efficient 10-15 from the field, lighting up the Wizards for 29 points. Larry Nance Jr recorded a double-double against the pesky Wizards, scoring 22 points and pulling in 12 boards off of the bench. Kevin Love was quiet on the glass, grabbing just 5 rebounds, but made up for it on offense with 21 total points.

The Cavaliers have dropped six consecutive games and fall to a record of 12-33. The Chicago Bulls are heading to town to take on the Cavaliers on Saturday evening, tip-off set for 8:00 pm ET at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. Check out highlights from today's game below!
