CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers were gunning for their first three-game winning streak since last March. However, the Atlanta Hawks had other ideas. Swingman Kyle Korver buried a key 3-pointer with 1:21 remaining, and the Hawks held off the Cavs, 102-94, on Friday at Quicken Loans Arena. The Hawks (18-9) ended the game by scoring nine unanswered points. The Cavs led by one, 94-93, before Atlanta closed out the game. The Cavs' exciting backcourt of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters outscored their Hawks' counterparts, 46-43. Irving led the way with a game-high 28 points, six rebounds and five assists. He made 12 of 20 shots from the field, 4 of 7 from the 3-point line. It was the Hawks, though, that had the last laugh. Guard Jeff Teague had a team-high 27 points and a game-high eight assists. Atlanta, the top road team in the Eastern Conference at 8-4, also got 16 points from Lou Williams and 14 points and 11 rebounds from center Al Horford. The Hawks shot 48.7 percent f...

Cleveland dug themselves a decent sized hole, forcing themselves to play catch-up for the bulk of the night, but they had a shot. With a player like Kyrie Irving, you always have a shot.
It wasn’t Irving’s best game; Kyrie finished with 13 points on just 5-16 shooting and was 1-6 from behind...
