The Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night by a score of 103-74. With the loss the Cavaliers have now been passed by the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference for the top seed. The Spurs came out of fire to start the game and Cleveland looked ill prepared to play another game. San Antonio lead by 10 points after the first quarter and outscored the Cavs by 14 points in the second quarter to put them up to a 24-point lead into halftime. The second half was not as bad as the firstst for the Cavaliers, as they outscored the Spurs by 1 in the third quarter and were only outscored by 6 in the fourth. The Spurs were led by Kawhi Leonard, who had 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. Cleveland was led by all star Lebron James, who had 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists. Cleveland will now look to bounce back against the Bulls.
