Representatives of the Cleveland Cavaliers have quietly inquired whether the Cuyahoga County government would provide public money - in addition to the sin tax dollars voters approved last year - to overhaul the publicly-owned Quicken Loans Arena, Northeast Ohio Media Group has learned. But the Cavs have not yet presented an official proposal or disclosed the degree of public support they may seek, according to Tim Offtermatt, chairman of the board for the Gateway Economic Development Corporation, the non-profit landlord for The Q and Progressive Field.

Make that 2-8, thanks to Kyrie Irving, who went simply bananas in James’s absence, dropping 55 points on Portland to lead his team to a 99-94 win. That scoring total was the highest in the NBA this season, topping the 52 notched by Minnesota’s Mo Williams and Golden State’s Klay Thompson, and it was the most ever scored on the Cavs’ home court.

When it was Irving's turn to step into the spotlight, he was more "aw shucks" than "I'm awesome," and reluctantly accepted the extra attention coming his way. "It means a lot," Irving said. "For me, it's just about the intensity of the game and being out there with my gracious teammates and them doing a great job of getting me open and setting great screens. I'm just happy to get the win. That's the only thing that really matters. We continue our streak." ESPN.com

"I'm going to kindly decline to talk to you guys," James said shortly before slipping out of the locker room and into the cold Cleveland evening. "This is his night." ESPN.com
