Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving exploded for 46 points on 15-of-21 shooting, adding 3 assists and 2 rebounds in 38 minutes of action as the Cavs beat the Los Angeles Lakers 125-120 on Sunday. What It Means: Irving, along with LeBron James and Kevin Love, got Saturday night off to rest after knee tightness forced him to make an early exit from last Thursday's win over the Utah Jazz, and that rest seems to have served him well. Irving finished the win with a game-high 60.7 nERD, per numberFire Live. He sits second among Cavs players and 20th in the NBA with a 7.3...

Why Cavs’ stacked roster is a luxury for Tyronn Lue

Why Cavs’ stacked roster is a luxury for Tyronn Lue

Having such a loaded roster is without question a luxury for Lue, but that does not mean it is always easy to manage, especially with how many players have been shuffling in and out of the...
