Irving has easy night as Cavs rout Sixers 114-85

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed a career-best 15 rebounds, Kyrie Irving added 14 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers pushed their winning streak to five games Tuesday night with a 114-85 victory over the skidding Philadelphia 76ers.

Irving, selected MVP of the NBA All-Star game on Sunday with 31 points and 14 assists, played only 23 minutes in this rout.

Dion Waiters had 13 points before leaving with a knee injury in the second quarter. Luol Deng also scored 13 and Tristan Thompson had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Cavaliers (21-33), on their longest winning streak since an eight-game run in March 2010. That was LeBron James' final season in Cleveland.

The reeling Sixers fell to 15-40 with their ninth loss in a row and eighth straight at home - their longest skid since the 1996-97 season. Philadelphia has dropped 19 of 22 overall.
