Cavaliers top Orlando Wednesday night

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic 101-93 Wednesday night at The Q.

That makes six straight wins.

Kyrie Irving scored 22 points and the Cleveland 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.

In other news, Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters was examined today by Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health.

His exam and MRI confirmed the left knee hyperextension he suffered during the second quarter of last night's game in Philadelphia.

He was listed as OUT for tonight's game against the Orlando Magic at Quicken Loans Arena and will continue to receive treatment while he progresses back into basketball activity as his symptoms improve.
