CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Kyrie Irving scored 22 points and the Cavaliers won their sixth straight game, 101-93 over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.
Irving, chosen MVP of the NBA All-Star game Sunday, paced a balanced offense that extended the Cavaliers’ longest winning streak since they won eight in a row in March 2010. That was LeBron James’ final season in Cleveland.
Luol Deng scored 17 points, while Tyler Zeller and Tristan Thompson each added 16 for Cleveland.
Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 23 points. The Magic have lost 14 consecutive road games and are an NBA-worst 3-25 away from home.
The Cavaliers built an 18-point lead in the first quarter and were ahead by double figures until Orlando rallied in the third.
