During Cavs-Bulls, Kyrie Irving asked Mike Miller, "Is this, like, similar to what a playoff game feels like?" vine.co/v/OOmE0iLptBd

Brendan Bowers

Kyrie Irving: "Emotions got the best of us last night. We know that's no excuse, so we had to come out here and play our game" #Cavs #Bulls

Brendan Bowers

Kyrie Irving presented Blatt w/ game ball for first NBA win in locker room. Team joined celebration messing up his hair, stuff like that

Chris Haynes

David Blatt was handed the ball by his players after the contest for winning his first NBA game. Kyrie Irving made sure he took the ball.

Joe Cowley

"They don't talk to me.'' Thibs, asked if he was given an explanation by refs on Irving's questionable 3-point play.

Michael Lee

Midway during the #bulls-#cavs game, Kyrie Irving had a question for Mike Miller: vine.co/v/OOmE0iLptBd

Chuck Swirsky

Cavs 114-108 OT James 36-Irving 23 Thompson 16-13 reb Hinrich-Rose each with 20 Bulls 20 turnovers Cavs 52-42 on glass

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers beat Bulls, 114-108. LeBron w/ 36 on 14-of-30. Irving w/ 23. Thompson w/ 16 & 13. Rose has 20 in 25 mins, b4 leaving (ankle).

Jason Lloyd

Final OT: #Cavs 114, Bulls 108. LBJ 36p,8r; Love 16p,16r; Irving 23p,3a; Thompson 16p,13r.

Brendan Bowers

73 points for Cavs big three (James 36, Irving 21, Love 16) #Cavs #Bulls

Javier Gancedo

De todos modos la acción clave del partido es el 2+1 de Irving que fuerza la prórroga. Los árbitros perfectos de la NBA y tal. Vaya fraude.

Daniele Labanti

par condicio #cavs: un cross a testa per lebron, love, irving

Nick Friedell

Great defense by Taj Gibson. He got switched onto Irving and held his own.

Jason Lloyd

End 4Q: #Cavs 98, CHI 98. LBJ 28p,8r,4a; Irving 19p,3a; Love 16p,15r. CHI Rose 20p; Gasol 12p,8r. CLE 41%, 11TO; CHI 45%, 15TO

Beckley Mason

It's a good thing Gibson ran straight to Irving there, because Kyrie got way lost on that switch.

Chris Fedor

GREAT D there by Irving and the #Cavs I thought

Javier Gancedo

Joder, le han dado una canasta a Irving que es para flipar. Acción continuadísima. Empate, 98-98, ver para creer.

Chuck Swirsky

Irving with continuation -a 3 point play at 98..Bulls ball 27 sec left

Tony Jones

Great call. Irving never put the ball back on the floor. Classic continuation

Javier Gancedo

Irving pierde la pelota... dos pérdidas absurdísimas de CLE. Y otro triple de Hinrich que prácticamente cierra el partido, 96-91. Héroe!

John Schuhmann

2 Irving/Bron, 4 Irving/Love, by my count. RT @Rob Peterson: How many PnRs have the Cavs run with Irving-Bron or Irving-Love?

Rob Peterson

How many PnRs have the Cavs run with Irving-Bron or Irving-Love?

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 78, CHI 69 LBJ 24p,4r; Love 12p,13r; Irving 13p; Thompson 10p,7r. CHI Rose 20p,4r,4a; Gasol 10p,7r. CLE 45%, 8TO; CHI 44% 11TO

Steve Aschburner

Thru 3Q: Cavs 78, Bulls 69. LeBron 11/19 for 24p. Irving 13p, 4f, 17m. Love 12p, 13r. Rose 8/16, 20p. CHI 7/21 3FGAs. CLE 8 t/overs (4p).

Ethan J. Skolnick

Kevin Love is now 2-for-11 from the field, and Irving has played only 18 minutes b/c of foul trouble. But Cavs still lead Bulls by 6.

Nick Friedell

Bulls fan next to basket screams: "Cavaliers bench! What are all your names?" Kyrie Irving just looks over and shakes his head.

Sean Highkin

4 fouls on Kyrie Irving.

Marc Stein

K. Irving. R. Rubio. K. Thompson. K. Walker. K. Faried. N. Vucevic. A. Burks. Markieff Morris. Marcus Morris. NINE extensions. N-I-N-E

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 58, Bulls 52. LBJ 19p,3r,2a; Irving 11p,1a; Love 6p,7r; Thompson 8p,7r. CHI Rose 18p,2a; Gasol 8p,4r. CLE 45%, 5TO; CHI 51%, 6TO

Chris Haynes

End of the 1st half. #Cavs on top of Bulls 58-52. James 19 points, 3 rebounds. Rose 18 points, 3 rebounds. Irving 11 points.

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving wants no part of Rose - coming up small without that FIBA basketball in his hand.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cleveland was plus-8 with LeBron off the floor, mostly b/c Irving abused Snell and Brooks.

Joe Cowley

All Irving has shown tonight is he can bully a back-up point guard. Need to do it against Rose to be taken seriously.

Marc Stein

Make that nine extensions so far: Kyrie Irving, Kenneth Faried, Nikola Vucevic, Ricky Rubio, Kemba Walker, Alec Burks and the Morris Twins

Michael Lee

How many players have a better offensive arsenal than Kyrie Irving? Where would you rank him among pure scorers in NBA?

Chris Haynes

Kyrie Irving picks up his second foul midway through the first. That's not good for #Cavs. He is subbed out by Matthew Dellavedova.

Jason Lloyd

Blatt spoke pregame about using bench more tonight. Forced to now that Irving has 2 quick fouls. Delly, Miller checking in. TT already in

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving looking like the little brother so far. Kind of like he did at the start of Team USA.

Nick Friedell

Rose takes a charge from Irving. Falls hard but gets up and keeps rolling. He's very active early on.

Ethan J. Skolnick

When LeBron miscommunicated on pass w/ Irving last nt, he thought of similar play in 2010 opener in BOS w/ Wade. Had 8 TOs that night too.

Yannis Koutroupis

After his performance in the last two Finals, I thought Kawhi was worthy of the Kyrie Irving day 1 extension.

Jason Lloyd

Kyrie Irving wants communication with coach David Blatt to improve; Bulls' Jimmy Butler gametime decision tonight ohio.com/blogs/clevelan…

Frank Isola

For those scoring at home, Andrew Wiggins has more wins this season than LeBron, Kevin Love & Kyrie Irving combined.

Dave McMenamin

New story: LeBron obviously struggled, but Blatt and Irving both owned up to some of the blame Thursday also es.pn/1toglwS

Ethan J. Skolnick

Knicks win, 95-90. LeBron & Carmelo hug. LeBron finishes w/ 17/5/4 & 8 TO's. Irving w/ 22/5/7. Carmelo w/ 25. And Cavs in Chicago tomorrow.

Mike Prada

Irving’s numbers will look great, but I think the Knicks (and other opponents) will accept those given how he’s gotten his stats.

Vince Thomas

That boy Irving is so slick around the bucket...like Rod Strickland slick

Mico Halili

Kyrie Irving's crossover will put a lot of defenders on YouTube this season.
