Kyrie Irving did it again. Thats surprises no one, what is surprising is that the Cavs beat the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night . Five Cavs (Jamison, Gee, Hollins, Parker and Sessions) scored in double digits, Irving NOT one of them, however he did have a career high 12 assists. A back and forth game where neither team lead by more than 5 points until the final minute. A Ramon Sessions buzzer beater 3 was called off at the end of the 1st quarter resulting in the Cavaliers trailing 27-26 after 1. Then a Anthony Parker buzzer beater before the half counted bringing the Cavs to within 51-49. Tied at 69 after 3 quarters the fast-paced Cavs some how pulled off the win despite being out shot 48.7% to 41.8% and 13 blocked shots by the Thunder. Irving had 2 layups and a free throw giving him 5 points down the stretch, throw in an assist and a rebound that sparked a 12-0 run giving the Cavs the lead for good. For OKC Durant finished with 23 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 blocks. Serge Ibaka added 13 points, 7 rebounds and 6 blocked shots. All-star point guard Russell Westbrook had 19 points and 4 assists. The surprising win gives the Cavs back-to-back road wins for the 1st time this season. For the Thunder the 96-90 defeat snaped a 14 game home winning streak and puts the Thunder’s home record for the year at 17-2. Cavaliers next game will be back at the Q Sunday against the Houston Rockets.

    This clearly shows Irving doesn’t have to score for us to win ball games. This was a great TEAM win tonight! The Cavs have a bright future with Irving at the reigns. I am definitely looking forward to more games like this fro
    the Cavs!

      Couldn’t agree more. Future gets brighter and brighter everyday with the young team getting more experience and pulling off huge wins like this.
