The Cavs concluded their dismal five-game home stand with yet another disappointing loss, this time dropping one to the Pelicans 100-89 on a night where more boo's rained down than successful shots.
They had no answer for Anthony Davis, who scored 30 points with eight blocks and seven rebounds, showing the type of dominance that a number one overall pick is supposed to be capable of.
New Orleans scored 16 straight points to close the first half and opened a 22-point lead in the third.
The 2013 number one overall pick did have his best game of the season, as Anthony Bennett scored a career-high 15 points, while also collecting eight rebounds in his 31 minutes of play.
Kyrie Irving scored 23 points and Dion Waiters added 21 more, as they finish the home stand at just 1-4.
Cavs now head out to East to MSG and battle the Knicks on Thursday.
