CLEVELAND, OH -- Andre Drummond made his Cleveland Cavaliers debut against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night, and the new-look Cavaliers looked a bit lost. The Clippers did not trail one time throughout the entirety of the game, and seemed to get stronger as the game went on. Los Angeles cruised to a 133-92 victory, handing the Cavaliers their largest home-loss in franchise history.

Sunday's blowout victory for the Clippers came after an ugly 142-115 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have the NBA's worst record. Despite losing in blowout fashion on Saturday, the Clippers chose to give Kawhi Leonard a rest day, but the Clip Show didn't miss a beat. Paul George stepped up in a big way for the visiting Clippers, scoring 22 points on an efficient 8-12 from the field. Lou Williams, who is usually at the six-man role, started at point guard and led all scorers with 25 points, shooting an impressive 8-14. Montrezl Harrell carried the weight for the bench squad, lighting up the Cavaliers for 19 points and 9 boards.

Andre Drummond stepped in and had a decent night against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cleveland big-man led the Cavaliers in points with 19, and also pulled in 14 rebounds. Kevin Love struggled to find his place in the new Cavs offense, finishing the game with 10 points, and falling 1 rebound short of a double-double.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have now dropped six straight games, and twelve straight at the homefront. Cleveland moves to 13-40 on the season and will have back-to-back off days before taking on the Hawks. The Atlanta Hawks will come to town to take on a struggling Cavaliers squad on Wednesday evening. Tip-off set for 7:00 pm ET at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
