Pargo leads Cavaliers to 92-83 win

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Jeremy Pargo, filling in for the injured Kyrie Irving, scored a career-high 28 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a 6-game losing streak with a 92-83 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.

The Cavaliers came into the game with a 2-8 record, but stopped the Sixers' 3-game winning streak despite not having Irving. The NBA's reigning rookie of the year is expected to miss a month with a broken left index finger. He was injured Saturday against Dallas and played the next night in Philadelphia before an MRI revealed a crack in the bone.

Dion Waiters scored 16 points while Alonzo Gee added 14 for Cleveland. Anderson Varejao scored 10 points and had 19 rebounds.
