The Cleveland Cavaliers have extended their incredible winning streak to 12 as their resurgence continued tonight.
The Cavaliers overcame the LA Clippers tonight 105-94 and it all came down to two of Cleveland's star men to get them through.
After an incredibly high scoring first two quarters for Cleveland where they finished the first half on 65 points, they would then continue their form in the third before a very low scoring fourth quarter.
With just 11 points in the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers allowed the Clippers a life line but had fortunately already established a lead and it was enough to get the win.
LeBron James and Kevin Love were the key men for the Cavaliers as they came away with 47 points between them.

LeBron with 23 and Love scoring 24, the two did everything they could to guide Cleveland to victory.
The turbulent times the Cavaliers endured during LeBron's injury seem to be well behind them as are now on a 12 game winning streak.
Up next for the Cavaliers is a trip to the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night whilst the Clippers face a very tough trip to the Toronto Raptors and desperately need a win to snap their two game losing streak.
