CINCINNATI - J.J. Hickson led a balanced Cleveland scoring attack with 22 points and added 11 rebounds as the Cavaliers cruised to a 111-95 preseason victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Tuesday night.
Eight players reached double figures for Cleveland (5-2), including Anderson Varejao, who had 11 points and 11 rebounds in just over 27 minutes in his first game of the preseason.
Varejao, getting a tryout at center, had been out with a sprained ankle and because of a death in his family.
Andre Iguodala led Philadelphia (1-5) with 19 points.
Rookie Evan Turner scored four points in his first game back in the state where he was last year's consensus player of the year at Ohio State.
