Byron Mullens had 15 points and seven rebounds in 17 minutes and fellow reserve Ramon Sessions added 14 points for the Bobcats, who wrapped up a winless five-game road trip and have lost eight of their last nine road games.

Cleveland led by 11 after one quarter and broke it open in the second. The Cavaliers held Charlotte scoreless for more than four minutes while reeling off a 14-0 run to extend the margin to 50-29, and the Bobcats never threatened again.

Tyler Zeller's layup to end the third quarter gave the Cavs 100 points, and they emptied the bench in the fourth. Wayne Ellington scored 16 points off the bench and Marreese Speights added 11 points and 10 rebounds as Cleveland continued its streak of six straight games with at least two reserves scoring in double figures.
