Kyrie Irving scores 34 points as Cavaliers' one-man show

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving scored 34 points during a 117-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, seven assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes. What It Means: He made 13-of-25 from the field with two turnovers as a one-man band at home. Before tonight, Irving had a massive 45.5 usage rate when LeBron James (illness) and Kevin Love (knee) are out of the lineup, so his 43.8 usage rate in this loss is hardly a surprise. If LeBron's strep throat keeps him out on Monday, Irving will be another easy DFS target. The Cavs have...

Beyond the arc: Korver's 'scary' banged knee, LeBron's strep throat tests Cavs fans' psyches

In my debut as Cavs' beat writer, sights, sounds and observations from the Cavs' 117-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena: 1. Glass half empty fans, take a few deep breaths and remind yourselves it's only the regular season. Otherwise, Saturday's circumstances might get you down. 2. LeBron James stayed home with strep throat that could also compromise his chances of playing in Monday's home game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Kyle Korver took a frightening fall near the stanchion with 2:59 remaining that left him afraid to get up and prompted the medical...
