Kyrie Irving missed shootaround on Thursday morning, unable to participate because of an illness. When the media chatted with Cavs head coach David Blatt before the game he was hopeful, but still unsure about Irving's availability. "It wasn't close at all," Irving responded when asked about how close he was to not playing. "I just wasn't feeling well this morning. I was in a little bit of a daze when I woke up, my body was cramping up. I had my mind made up that I was going to play regardless, not too sick to play." Cleveland Plain Dealer

"I saw a pretty good player when we first came into camp," Cavs coach David Blatt said. "I'm not seeing him do different things. I just think his level of commitment to both ends of the court is extremely high. "His ability to incorporate his skillset with other great players like Kevin (Love), LeBron (James) and the other guys we brought to the team is a real step forward because he hasn't had to do that before or hasn't had the opportunity to do that before."

Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Miami Heat. Irving missed the team's morning shootaround with an unspecified illness. The team said he is a game-time decision. Cavs forward Kevin Love is also questionable with a sore back. Love only took part in the non-contact portion of practice on Wednesday. He has been bothered by a back issue all season and was hit with an elbow in Sunday's win over Philadelphia. Love said the team getting two days off earlier this week helped. The Cavs have seven games remaining in the regular season and USA Today Sports

This is the story of how James and Irving overcame their differences and transformed into one of the NBA's most menacing duos. "Friends or no friends, at the end of the day we're all here to do one thing, and that's to win," James said to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. Both James and Irving granted separate, exclusive interviews to discuss their months of building on and off-court relationships that are so vital to Cleveland's postseason success.
