Cleveland's three professional teams formed their unique alliance last year to make a larger social impact in Northeast Ohio and Thursday's event at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse focused on creating dialogue between police officers and youngsters aged 14 to 20.
Led by Jarrett Allens career-high tying 26 points (10-11 FG), along with 18 rebounds and four blocks, the Cavaliers defeated the Rockets, 112-96. Collin Sexton added 23 points for the Cavaliers in the victory, while John Wall tallied 20 points and three assists for the Rockets in the losing effort. The Cavaliers improve to 12-21 on the season, while the Rockets fall to 11-19.
