CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – C.J. Miles set a team record with 10 3-pointers and scored a season-high 34 points, leading the Cavaliers to a 111-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
Miles made eight 3s in the first half, when the Cavs opened a 26-point lead that allowed them to coast to a rare easy win. He notched his ninth with 9:53 left and drained No. 10 with 9:17 remaining. He went 10 of 14 from outside the arc.
Cleveland’s second victory in 10 games came hours after the club acquired forward Luol Deng from Chicago in a trade for center Andrew Bynum and future draft picks. Deng wasn’t in uniform, but Cavs All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving returned after missing three games with a bruised left knee and finished with 16 points.
Philadelphia’s Thaddeus Young, the reigning Eastern Conference player of the week, missed all seven shots and didn’t score in 21 minutes. Evan Turner wasn’t much help, scoring four on 2 of 13 shooting.
