Should the Cavaliers Offense Revolve Around Kyrie Irving or LeBron James? bleacherreport.com/articles/24079… via @bleacherreport

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavs rout Grizz, 111-89, w/ 30 assists. All 5 Cavs starters in double figures, led by Irving's 24. Highlight: Perkins, off dribble, 14-ft J.

Ethan J. Skolnick

David Blatt trying to move up in AP poll, still had Love/Irving/Smith in with 27-point lead, 3 minutes left.

For #Cavs, @Kyrie Irving, 24pts, 9-19 FG; @Kevin Love, 19pts, 9-12 FG, 9reb; @LeBron James, 16pts, 7reb, 5asst; @mozg25, 14pts, 5-7 FG, 9reb.

Excellent 1H by #Cavs here in MEM - lead, 55-42; @Kyrie Irving has that look, 18pts, 7-14 FG; @LeBron James, 13pts, 4reb, 2asst.

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 55, Grizz 42. Irving 18p; James 13p,3r,2a; Love 9p,4r,3a; Mozgov 8p,6r. MEM Gasol 14p,2r; Allen 7p,8r. CLE 45%, 5TO; MEM 40%,6TO

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers lead Grizzlies, 55-42, at the half. Irving w/ 18. LeBron w/ 13. Gasol w/ 14. Randolph just 2-of-7.

Eli Savoie

So scary to think that Kyrie Irving just turned 23 a couple days ago. That's right, 23!

Joe Gabriele

As expected, bare-knuckle 1Q between #Cavs and Grizz - Wine and Gold up, 22-19; @Kyrie Irving, 8pts, 3-8 FG; @Kevin Love, 7pts, 3-5 FG.

Jason Lloyd

End 1Q: #Cavs 22, Grizz 19. Irving 8p; Love 7p,2r; James 5p,3r,2a. MEM Gasol 7p,1r; Randolph 4p,3r. CLE 43%, 4TO; MEM 41%, 5TO

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers lead Grizzlies, 22-`19. Irving w/ 8, Gasol w/ 7. Love w/ 7, but also some awkward moments.

Sam Amico

Over previous six games, Cavs PG Kyrie Irving averaging 26 points on 51 pct shooting, including 57 pct on 3-pointers, and 5.8 assists.

Jeff Zillgitt

Podcast time: "NBA A to Z" with @Sam Amick and myself, talking Cavs, James, Irving, Love, James Harden, Nash: usat.ly/1xgD96U

Marcus Thompson

Arguably, the top 10 PGs (sans Curry): Paul, Westbrook, Irving, Conley, Lillard, Wall, Lowry, Parker, Teague, Rose.

Chris Haynes

Pretty amazing and scary that @Kyrie Irving just turned 23 today. Enough said!

Jeff Zillgitt

Love, Irving and Mozgov played less than half of the second half. Cavs excelled with James, Smith, Shumpert, Thompson, Dellavedova.

Jeff Zillgitt

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith all with at least 20 points as Cavs pulling away from Bucks on threes in the fourth.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 75, Bucks 73. CLE James 15p,7r; Irving 20p,7a; Smith 12p. MIL: Giannis 15p,9r; Middleton 14p,7a. CLE 46%, 11TO; MIL 56%, 18TO

#Cavs fight through sluggish three quarters to take 75-73 lead on @Iman Shumpert's nice take; @Kyrie Irving, 20pts, 9-19 FG, 7asst, 3reb.

Joe Vardon

Some rough-looking shooting numbers: Irving 8-of-18, Love 4-12, LeBron 3-7

The Bledsoe Show up to 32 points in 27 mins. Most vs. Rockets this season is Kyrie Irving's 38. Bledsoe to sit with 3 min left in 3rd, up 9.

Jonathan Feigen

Bledsoe's 23 points tied Steph Curry and Kyrie Irving for most in a half against the Rockets this season. Suns up, 62-61.

Paul Coro

Eric Bledsoe's 23 first-point half ties a Rockets opponent season scoring high for a half. Previously done by Curry & Irving. #SunsAtRockets

LeBron James

Dragic has outplayed Irving. Lillard past 2 games & is outplaying Lawson now. At that position, just need a guy who gives u a chance.

With LeBron James under the weather, it looks like Kyrie Irving will (perhaps) direct the offense a little more vs. Pacers.
