Darius Garland nearly had a triple-double as the Cavs out-rebounded Washington 54-33.

WASHINGTON — Darius Garland had 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers went on a 19-0 run spanning part of each half in a 116-101 rout of the Washington Wizards.

Cleveland won its fourth straight game, and this streak has been pretty emphatic. The Cavs beat Orlando by 13, Dallas by 18 and Miami by 26.

On Friday, Cleveland (13-10) scored the final nine points of the second quarter and the first 10 of the third, pushing a 10-point advantage to 29. After Bradley Beal's layup snapped a drought of about 7 1/2 minutes for Washington, Isaac Okoro and Garland made 3-pointers to make it 81-48.

The Cavs out-rebounded the Wizards (14-9) 54-33, with Jarrett Allen leading the way with 13 boards along with 28 points. Kevin Love scored 13 and hauled in nine rebounds off the bench, while Ricky Rubio had six assists in 29 minutes of action.

Riding their second four-game streak of the season, the Cavaliers will be back home Sunday afternoon to welcome the Jazz to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Cleveland has not beaten Utah since December of 2017.
