CLEVELAND: Jeremy Pargo, filling in for the injured Kyrie Irving, scored a career-high 28 points, and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a six-game losing streak with a 92-83 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
The Cavaliers stopped the Sixers’ three-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.
