Cavs' Kyrie Irving on shoulder: "It's a little sore right now. It's uncomfortable. We'll see how it feels (Friday) and go from there."
To clarify, NBA teams travel at night after games. Kyrie merely not traveling with Cavs TONIGHT. If cleared, he could fly to Indy on Friday.
Cavs not yet sure of severity of Kyrie's shoulder, as MRI scheduled for Friday at Cleveland Clinic. He did play, however, after the injury.
Kyrie Irving won't travel with the team. He will receive an MRI for a shoulder injury at the Clinic tomorrow. He is doubtful against IND
Kyrie Irving will not travel to Indiana. He's doubtful for game against the Pacers on Friday with a left shoulder injury. He'll have MRI.
Kyrie Irving will not travel in the tonight to Indy, to get MRI on shoulder in CLE. Is doubtful for the game
Kyrie Irving will receive an MRI on his L shoulder tomorrow morning in Cleveland. Won't fly to Indy tonight w/ team. Doubtful for IND game.
Kyrie Irving won't travel to Indiana with shoulder injury. He's doubtful for Pacers game. He'll have a MRI tomorrow
Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not travel to Indiana for Friday's game. Doubtful vs Pacers.
LeBron confirmed his back was stiff and he would get treatment (routine)
Kyrie Irving was still favoring his L shoulder a bit after the game. He said he'll get treatment in Indiana and hopes to play.
Steve Kerr on LeBron: “The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us.”
Stephen Curry on MVP: "I hope it’s not handed out on this one game. I hope it’s about the body of work. Tonight just wasn’t my best game"
Stephen Curry on the officiating: "We felt like the calls didn’t go our way and it was pretty blatant.”
Steve Kerr on LeBron: "The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us"
Not sure if LeBron is getting treatment on his back, but game ended at 10:43 and we haven't seen him in LR yet
Alright...so revisiting that whole Cavs roster vs. Golden State's...no wrong answer but might have to change my vote from earlier haha.
Cavs' Kevin Love, smiling, on LeBron's performance: "It was alright."
Cavs 110, Warriors 99. Make it 18 wins in last 20 for Cavs. Make it LeBron with season-high 42. Make it Cavs on another level right now.
Cavs win 110-99 for 18th W in last 20 games, improve to 37-22. LeBron season-high 42p 11r; Kyrie 24p; Love 16p 8r; Mozgov 10p 10r
Cavs fans loudly mocking Steph Curry after that last missed 3. Curry and Klay Thompson just 10-of-30 shooting. Cavs' D comes thru again.
LeBron's 11 rebounds tie a season high
Sometimes it looks like LeBron just gets bored. And he's got 42 vs the team with the league's best record. Cavs up 107-94 with 2:53 left.
Season-high 42 pts for LeBron
LeBron James season high 42 points
With that floater, LeBron James has a season-high of 42 points.
And he's up
LeBron remains laying down during this timeout. Three Cavs went over to help him up and he waved them off
So LeBron is having his best game this season (arguably) but his back is clearly bothering him. He's laying on the floor instd of bench
Kyrie Irving is coming back in.
Tonight's LeBron's third 40-point game of the season. Cavs were 1-1 in his first two.
I could come up with a bunch of informative things about this Cavs game, but it's really about one thing: Cleveland has LeBron. GS doesn't
LeBron James' season high is 41. He now has 40.
Cavs up 90-78 through 3Q. LeBron 38p on 13-for-21 5r 4a; Kyrie 20p; Mozgov 10p 10r; Love 10p; T.Thompson 8p 7r.
LeBron's season high of 41 appears to be in jeopardy
LeBron just broke out the MJ shrug after hitting a 3 to give him 36 pts for the game on 12-for-18 shooting.
This is LeBron's third break tonight. In Dec., he wouldn't have been able to sit out in game like this. What a statement game
LeBron is cooking and is as animated as we've seen him on the court since that Toronto win the Cavs had back at The Q early on.
LeBron James is letting everybody know that Stephen Curry may be the MVP favorite, but he's still the game's best player.
LeBron is off to a 9-for-12 start to the game. Has 28 pts. Cavs up 11 on the Warriors. Has twice as many pts as his MVP competition, Curry
Warriors get 2nd technical, this one on Draymond Green. Cavs on top, 68-61
Here in CLE, LeBron James has 24 pts as Cavs lead Warriors 61-56 at half. There'd be several cool Finals matchups this year and this is one.
Cavs take a 61-56 lead into the half. LeBron 24p 3r 3a; Kyrie 15p; Tristan Thompson 6p 6r. David Lee 15p; Curry 14p for GSW.
Pregame James. http://t.co/YX6cwnLlRn
Can't leave Harrison Barnes in the corner. He's better than 50 percent from that spot.
Love how fiery Kerr is. That's his 8th technical of the season, tied with Thibs. Only Indy's Frank Vogel (9) has more.
Technical foul on Steve Kerr
Perkins less than thrilled about being removed.
Perk is averaging a foul a minute. He played 2 mins vs Detroit, committed 2 fouls. Two mins tonight, 2 fouls.
Warriors are just 4-13 from three-point range tonight. Cavs have outscored them from beyond the arc.
That's twice in two games Perkins has been whistled for offensive foul.
LeBron went to the locker room to have his back wrapped. Returned to bench
By the way, that was a terrific pass from JR Smith to Love in the corner. Six weeks ago with the Knicks, he's taking that himself.
Lots of talk about Finals and MVPs in my timeline...Word
What a sequence for J.R. Smith: Breaks up the Warriors' fastbreak with a poke-away steal. Then passes up his own shot for an open Love 3
Crowd cheers as Perk ready to check in
LeBron has 22 points on just nine shots. That's some efficiency.
This would be a wildly entertaining Finals. Just sayin.
Kerr was asked if he thought LeBron would try to have "one of those games" w Curry out there. Kerr said: "Probably." He was right. 18 pts
