All eyes were on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday as they faced off against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The 76ers aren’t easy to beat, especially with Joel Embiid in MVP mode and playing better than he has in so long.
But the Cavs weren’t going to go down without a fight.
A fight is definitely what they brought to the game.

In the end, the players and fans had a lot to celebrate as they definitively beat the 76ers, 113-85.
This now leaves the Cavs with a 14-8 record, inching them ever closer to the second spot in the East and again proving that they are a team that shouldn’t be taken for granted or slept on, no matter who they are playing against.
Once again, there were several players doing sensational work for the Cavs.
You wouldn’t have been surprised to see Darius Garland leading the way for the Cavaliers, as he has multiple times throughout the season.
But it was actually Caris LeVert off the bench who had the most points for the Cavaliers, notching 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Garland was no slouch, of course, and he produced 21 points, 2 rebounds, and 9 assists.
The team has been playing very well, even without their big man Jarrett Allen, who is still recovering from injury.
As for the 76ers, they didn’t have an answer for Cleveland.
Even Embiid, who has been ridiculously good this season, was held to 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
Shake Milton produced 14 but no other player scored in the double digits.
