If the Cavaliers are to become title contenders anytime soon, the trio of Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett will need to elevate each others’ game. Sort of like this sequence during Monday night’s preseason win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Cavaliers won 104-93. Irving finished with 17 points and 12 assists. Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 16 rebounds. Anthony Bennett had nine points and five boards.
