Cleveland Cavaliers fall to Toronto Raptors for fifth loss in last six games

Isaac Okoro led Cleveland with 20 points. Jared Allen had 15 points and seven rebounds.

TORONTO, ON — Editor's Note: The above video is from a prevously published story.

Pascal Siakam scored 25 points, rookie Malachi Flynn came off the bench with 18 and the Toronto Raptors pulled away in the second half for a 112-96 win over the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers. 

Kyle Lowry contributed nine points, five rebounds and 10 assists for the Raptors, who have won five of six. 

Isaac Okoro led Cleveland with 20 points. Jared Allen had 15 points and seven rebounds and Darius Garland had 13 points and 10 assists for the Cavaliers, who have lost five of six. The Cavaliers played with the same starting lineup they used in Sunday night's 119-110 loss at Washington, but without the first four players who came off their bench in that game.

Larry Nance Jr. fractured his right thumb in the fourth quarter Sunday night and is expected to be out for several games. Matthew Dellavedova had a strained neck, and Lamar Stevens and Isaiah Hartenstein came out of the Washington game with concussion symptoms.

The broken thumb is the latest medical setback for Nance, who missed seven games recently with an undisclosed illness and more than a month with a broken left hand.

During a sequence in the game, Cavs forward Kevin Love batted an inbounds pass instead of catching the ball from a referee. Toronto took advantage of the gift by Love and drained an easy 3-pointer.
