Beyond The Buzzer:
Kyrie Irving returned to the Cavs lineup Wednesday night after missing three games last week with a sore right knee. Although he looked fine, scoring 20 points and dishing 10 assists in a comeback win over the Jazz, Irving again complained of soreness in his knee, but plans to play through it, so long as it doesn’t affect his health or level of play.
According to Sam Amico, Fox Sports Ohio:
The knee is still sore, he said. He will carry on anyway, he added. “The only way I would get better is if I sit out for the rest of the season,” he said. “I’m not doing that.”
Anyway, Cavs coach Byron Scott said the Cavs might have to consider shutting down Irving for a while if the knee continues to be a problem — or if it gets to the point “where I know it’s bothering him enough that he can’t perform the way I know he is capable of.”

CLEVELAND -- Ten things from the Cavaliers 103-92 loss to visiting Memphis on Friday night:
1. If Im a Cavs fan, I dont have a major issue with this one. Memphis is a darn good team -- a team that focuses on defense and is the best in the league in that department. The Grizzlies surrender about 90 points a game. Theyre no slouches on offense, either. With the win, theyre 30-2 when...
