HOUSTON, TX --- Cleveland travels to the Toyota center to dominate the Rockets in a convincing 113-95 fashion. The Cavaliers were led by Garland who shot 56% from the field, leading the Mitchell-less backcourt, followed by a pair of double-doubles by Mobley and Allen. Rockets leading scorers tonight included Tari Easton with 18 off the bench, along with two 14 point performances by Rockets Sengun and Smith.

Cleveland got to a hot start and never took their foot off the gas as they outscore the rockets 37 to 25 in the first. Dean wade contributed 15 points off the bench tonight after coming of his injury, and was a big boost to Cleveland's offense. More importantly, a much needed boost off the bench where Cleveland has had its woes these past few games. However, the Cavaliers impressive offense continued throughout the first half scoring 74 to 48 shooting 57% from the field and a scorching 58% from distance. But the story tonight was on the defensive end as they force 19 turnovers (12 steals along with 4 blocks). Ultimately, everything was clicking tonight for Cleveland as they finish off a struggling Houston team 113 to 95.

The Cavaliers are back in action tomorrow night in Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder. Tipoff is set for 8pm, you can listen on WTAM 1100 AM, 106.9 FM, and on your free iHeart Radio App or HERE
