Cavaliers get 13th straight win with clutch performances for James, Korver; three takeaways

CLEVELAND– It sure looked like the Cavaliers’ 12-game win streak was in jeopardy on Wednesday night.

But in a game that was admittedly ugly for its entirety, Cleveland found a way to close out down the stretch thanks to a couple of clutch performances, and escape with a 101-95 win over the Sacramento Kings.

With the victory, the Cavs tie their franchise-record for most consecutive wins with 13. They also currently own the longest-active streak in the NBA.

The game didn’t come together for Cleveland until the fourth quarter, when Kyle Korver lit a spark in the opening minutes and LeBron James closed the game out with his dagger Chicago-style three.

Here are three takeaways from the nail-biter.
