Donovan Mitchell’s 34 points propel Cavaliers over Trail Blazers

In a commanding performance, Donovan Mitchell’s 34 points led the Cleveland Cavaliers (5-6) to a decisive 109-95 victory over the struggling Portland Trail Blazers (3-8), marking Portland’s fifth consecutive loss.

Mitchell’s stellar performance was complemented by Evan Mobley’s double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Cavaliers concluded their nine-day western road trip with a 2-2 record.

Despite missing key players like Darius Garland, Ty Jerome, and Isaac Okoro due to injuries, the Cavaliers showcased their depth and resilience.

Shorthanded Portland, already dealing with injuries to Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons, Malcolm Brogdon, and Robert Williams III, faced a tough challenge against the Cavaliers.

Jerami Grant led the Blazers with 17 points, and Duop Reath, a center on a two-way contract, contributed 16 points off the bench.

Cleveland controlled the game, leading by 14 points in the opening quarter and maintaining a comfortable advantage throughout.

The victory adds to Cleveland’s early-season success but highlights the Blazers’ struggle to find consistency amid their injury woes.
