CLEVELAND – The 76ers got a rare and much-needed victory.
The Sixers had lost 11 straight games to the Cleveland Cavaliers by an average of 10 points. Add in their recent struggles on the road, and a victory over the Cavs at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night appeared a stretch.
But the Sixers prevailed, 108-97.
This marked their first win over Cleveland (36-25) since Jan. 5, 2015 at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (33-27) had lost their previous two games — to Washington Wizards and the Miami Heat – of this three-game road trip. Thursday’s victory marked just their second victory in their last eight road games.
