76ers Defeat Cavaliers 91-77 Reaction Thread: There's No Place Like Home

In a mildly competitive Sunday afternoon matinee, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 91-77 in the team's final home game of the season.


Thanks to a 19-3 Sixers' run to start the contest, this game was over almost as soon as it started.

Dorell Wright led all scorers with 15 points and was one of six Sixers in double figures. Three Cavs (Tristan Thompson, Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington) finished with 12 points apiece.

The expected battle between Jrue Holiday and Kyrie Irving never truly came to fruition: Irving started off 1-for-6 from the floor, picked up his fifth foul early in the third quarter, and finished with just four points in a shade under 19 minutes. Holiday, meanwhile, had 14 points on a rather unimpressive 17 shots.

With the win, the Sixers will finish the season with a 23-18 record at the Wells Fargo Center. The victory also gave Philadelphia a 3-1 edge in the season series against the Cavs.

Full recap to come - until then, feel free to do the reaction thing below.
