There was a time when the Cleveland Cavaliers used to beat up on the Toronto Raptors.

Of course, that was during the LeBron James era.

But nowadays, the Raptors are an elite team in the NBA and the Cavaliers are rebuilding to get back to that status.

For the second time in a week, Toronto beat the Cavs. Tuesday night’s score was 99-93. The Cavs third straight loss after winning six in a row.

Leading the way for the Raptors was DeMar DeRozan with 33 points, six assists and four rebounds. Terrence Ross scored 19 points.

The Cavs were led by Kyrie Irving and the recently-acquired Spencer Hawes. Irving finished with 25 points and nine assists. Hawes, making his first start since joining the Cavs in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers five days ago, collected 15 points and 7 rebounds.

76ers topple Cavaliers by 20 points, 117-97

Byron Scott (file photo)

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott is learning that winning games are going to be very difficult this year without a superstar player around who can score 30 to 40 points and also come through when the game is tight.

Scott has seen his team lose to teams with lesser talent as they have been on a losing skid. This time to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The team’s biggest problem is on the defensive end where they’ve given up more than 100 points for the fifth straight game and the 14th time this year. They are 2-12 when they give up 100 points or more.

Philadelphia came out and put the game out of reach early. The Sixers recorded a season in first quarter points (35) and half (66).

It was the fifth time this season Cleveland have lost by 20 or more points, and it’s the first time they’ve lost five straight games since early in 2007, when they lost six straight from November 28-December8.

J.J. Hickson led the Cavs with 18 points and Daniel Gibson scored 16.
