Cleveland Cavaliers beat short-handed Milwaukee Bucks 119-90 for 6th straight victory

The Cavs stayed red-hot despite the absence of starters Evan Mobley and Isaac Okoro.

MILWAUKEE — Cedi Osman scored 23 points, Darius Garland had 22 and the Cleveland Cavaliers extended their winning streak to six games, beating the short-handed Milwaukee Bucks 119-90 on Saturday night.

Garland made 10 of 13 shots to pace a Cavs (19-12) offense that shot 50% from the floor and made 16 of 45 3-point attempts. Cleveland was without starters Evan Mobley and Isaac Okoro due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, but Kevin Love (15 points, seven rebounds) and Ricky Rubio (15 points, 10 assists) both helped pick up the slack.

Jordan Nwora led Milwaukee (19-13) with 28 points on 11-of-21 shooting while DeMarcus Cousins finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. The defending NBA champion Bucks were without any of their regular starters due to either injuries or health concerns, with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo missing his third straight game while in the protocols.

Though they likely still won't have Mobley or Okoro, the red-hot Cavaliers will be right back on the court Sunday night when they head to Atlanta to face the Hawks.
