Cavs send Magic to 12th straight loss

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Kyrie Irving scored 24 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated Orlando 119-108 on Friday night, sending the Magic to their 12th straight loss.

Marreese Speights scored 18 points and Tristan Thompson added 16 for Cleveland, which scored 13 straight points in a stretch that began late in the third period to take control of the game.

The Cavaliers scored the last eight points of the third quarter to go ahead 85-80. A basket by Shaun Livingston and a 3-pointer by Wayne Ellington put Cleveland ahead 90-80 early in the fourth. The Cavaliers scored 34 points in the final period.

Nikola Vucevic scored a career-high 25 points for Orlando, which has lost 23 of 25. Arron Afflalo added 23 points and rookie Andrew Nicholson scored 21, but it wasn't enough for the Magic, who haven't won since Jan. 16.

Speights, who was 12 for 12 at the foul line, scored 12 points in the stretch that helped Cleveland take over. The Cavaliers, who tied a season high with their third straight victory, have won 6 of 8.
