The Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Milwaukee Bucks last night, 109-104. The Cavs trailed by just two at the half and Milwaukee led by four after three periods. In the fourth, Milwaukee jumped out to a 13-point lead with just five minutes left. But Kyrie Irving brought the Cavs right back into the game, scoring six straight points in the final two minutes before CJ Miles drained a three with a minute left to put Cleveland up by one. However, Cleveland missed a few buckets down the stretch and a Caron Butler put back went in with seconds left to win the game for Milwaukee. The Cavs will now head to Philadelphia on Friday at 7.
