Dion Waiters was able to rack up 17 points in this one, but he didn't exactly do it very efficiently.
The second-year guard out of Syracuse shot 7-of-21 from the floor, showing very little inclination to pass throughout (as evidenced by his zero assists).
Despite that, Waiters somehow ended up with a plus-three plus/minus, and in a game where your team loses by 15, that's pretty darn impressive.
He was able to come up with four steals, as well, so he deserves some credit for his defense.
Still, regardless of his positive plus/minus and his thefts, the lack of efficiency costs Waiters quite a bit in the grade book.
Through three quarters of play, Lance Stephenson had nine points. Then the fourth period came.
Stephenson erupted over the final 12 minutes, recording 13 points and nailing four threes. It wasn't like any of the triples were forced, either. They were all good, clean looks.
The Cincinnati product finished with a game-high 22 points off 7-of-13 shooting (5-of-7 from beyond the arc). He also posted five rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes of floor time.
Stephenson quelled any chance of a Cavaliers comeback in the fourth quarter, and for that, he deserves high marks.
