Bucks Hold Off Cavs Late Rally

The Cavaliers played easily their best quarter of the season on Friday night. Unfortunately, it takes three more to beat the NBA’s hottest squad.

John Beilein’s young squad used a monster third period to bounce back from a 22-point deficit, cutting Milwaukee’s lead to just three in the fourth quarter. But Cleveland couldn’t quite close the deal, as the scorching Bucks ran off their 10th straight victory – 119-100 – improving to 16-3 on the season.

In that productive third quarter, the Cavaliers drilled 10 three-pointers – shooting 62 percent from the floor and 67 percent from beyond the arc, handing out 10 assists without committing a single turnover.
