The cure for a six-game losing streak is finally becoming apparent to the Cavaliers: just line up some Western Conference playoff teams to beat.

After impressively topping the Nuggets and Thunder out West last week, the Cavaliers brought their mojo home – pulling away from the Rockets, 118-107, on Sunday evening at The Q.

“It was good to see us bring that intensity and focus back home like we had the last couple of games on the road,” praised Coach Scott.

For the second time in three days, the Cavaliers defied the odds.

After dropping six straight games, the Wine and Gold hit the road to take on a pair of the West’s heavy hitters – including the top team in the Conference. On Wednesday night, Cleveland stunned the Nuggets. On Friday, they did themselves one better.

Facing an Oklahoma City team that had won 14 straight home games and had beaten Cleveland by an average of 25 points per contest last season, it looked like they might have to settle for a split.
