Maybe Kyrie Irving was reading all of our content today about his inept fourth-quarter performances? Whatever it was, he scored 16 of the team’s 20 points in another awful final frame, as the Cavaliers barely held off the Charlotte Bobcats for a 106-104 victory. The Cavaliers (8-26) are now one game below the Bobcats (8-24) in the Eastern Conference standings. Also noteworthy: Tristan Thompson had arguably his best game of the season with 19 points and 13 rebounds, and new reserve guard Shaun Livingston saw 26 minutes off the bench.
