LOS ANGELES, CA -- The Cleveland Cavaliers came into the Staples center hungry for their second consecutive win to begin the west coast road trip. JB Bickerstaff's squad was stout on the defensive end of the floor, putting the clamps on the Clipeprs while holding a lead for the entirety of the game. The Cleveland Cavaliers cruised to a 92-79 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
The young bull Collin Sexton led the charge offensively for the first unit, dropping 26 points on an impressive 12-20 shooting. In his first NBA game back home in the LA area, Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley recorded a double-double with 12 points and 10 boards. Veteran point guard Ricky Rubio led the bench in scoring with 15 points.
Cleveland will continue their west coast roadie on Friday night when they take on the Los Angeles Lakers. Tip-off set for 10:30 pm ET at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
