Markkanen contributed 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 120-112 loss to Dallas.
The Scoop: Although he scored in double figures for a fifth straight game, Markkanen continued to struggle from three.

The Scoop: The fifth-year forward led the Cavaliers in scoring on the night as they lost to the Raptors for the first time this season.
