CLEVELAND--Cavs were without Tristan Thompson, Andre Drummond and Darius Garland Monday night against the Utah Jazz. Despite Collin Sexton' 32 points (career-high) and Kevin Love's six 3-pointers, Cavs fall to the Jazz 126-113.
While the Cavs were competing offensively by making 17 three-pointers, they could not stop Utah's 20 Three-pointers. Five of those three's came from Utah's leading scorer Bojan Bogdanovic who scored 28 points. Bogdanovic took advantage of the lack of size from the short-handed Cavs who again was missing Thompson and Drummond.
While the Cavs dropped their third straight, they competed against the playoff-bound Jazz without three of Cleveland's top players. The Jazz featuring Jordan Clarkson, who was traded from Cleveland in late December.
Cavs' Head Coach JB Bickerstaff's thoughts on the game below:
Jazz will travel to New York to face the New York Knicks on Wednesday night. The Cavs will host the Boston Celtics this Wednesday night (7pm Tip) on WTAM 1100AM/106.9FM.
