Mike D'Antoni and the Lakers lost to the measly Cleveland Cavaliers last night 100-94. This clearly puts all the blame on D'Antoni for not "bringing back" the Lakers. Not that this particular Lakers team was ever at the top in the first place. D'Antoni was grilled by the media after the game with multiple questions about the defense and Mike broke down and told reporter T.J. Simers "You're Starting to Piss Me Off."
No Mike, you're starting to piss off Laker fans with all the terrible defense your team is playing. The reporter is simply doing his job. Check out the video below.

Unfortunately Kyrie Irving didn’t do so well on his test.
CJ Miles came into this game picking up right where he left off. He scored 11 of the Cavaliers first 13 points and the Cavs bench played the best quarter of their season in the 2nd quarter. The Cavaliers were up 54-38 with about 4 minutes left in the first half. It looked like the Cavaliers would be cruising to another win...

To celebrate that win, we’re going with another Cavalier themed prize pack today.
Just a reminder how the giveaway works. For the next 11 weekdays...
Life without Kyrie Irving has not been fun. It was hard. How hard? The Cleveland Cavaliers (4-17, 13th in the East) went 2-9 without him. Sure, the Cavaliers are 2-8 with him, so there’s no evidence of the team being worse without him. But if you watched the 11 games he missed, you know the truth.
The Cavaliers score 108.3 points per 100 possessions with Kyrie on the floor. They...

Irving is fourth despite missing half the Cavaliers’ games this season.

Kyrie Irving is back, and man, thats just great.
Dion Waiters is not, and man, that sort of stinks.
After all, Waiters is the Cavs second-leading scorer, a developing rookie, a guy who scores 20 a game when the Cavs win. OK, thats only been four (out of 21) times, but still.
The Cavs need Waiters, Waiters needs playing time, and the Lakers are in town. And guess who...
Kyrie Irving talks after Cavaliers beat Lakers.
Kyrie Irving was ready. The self-proclaimed Cavaliers’ biggest cheerleader was ready to put down his pom poms and swap his suit for a wine and gold jersey. He knew that all of his begging and pleas would fall on the deaf ears of team physicians, keeping a long term, investment-like frame of mind when it came to clearing the reigning Rookie of the Year to resume full basketball...
Kyrie Irving had missed the Cleveland Cavaliers' last 11 games with a fractured finger. In that time, the Cavaliers often looked hopeless. They lost nine of those 11 games. However, irving was back last night as the Cavs took on the Los Angeles Lakers. And he made an instant difference. In his first game back, Irving played the second-most minutes (38) of anyone on the...
The Cavaliers were playing on the road one night after an emotional victory at home.
But what happened Wednesday at Indiana was unacceptable.
The verdict: Pacers 96, Cavs 81.
The sentence: Most likely the wrath of coach Byron Scott.
The truth: Life in the NBA, with its constant stream of back-to-back games and lack of respect from the referees, can be brutal and downright...
CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers ran into one of the all-time greats. But not even Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant's season-high 42 points could ruin the return of Cavs guard Kyrie Irving on Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena. Playing for the first time since Nov. 18, Irving had 28 points, six rebounds and a season-high 11 assists in the Cavs' exciting 100-94 victory...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kyrie Irving scored 28 points in his return after missing 11 games with a broken finger, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 100-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, who dropped to a new low Tuesday night in a tumultuous season.
Irving added 11 assists in 39 minutes and showed off his dizzying array of moves as the Cavs ended a five-game losing streak.
Cavs center Anderson Varejao puts Jordan Hill on a poster during the 1st quarter of Tuesday night’s game:
What a night for Cleveland sports.
First, Kyrie Irving came back for the Cavaliers.
Then, while the game was going on, the Indians made what appears to be a stellar trade.
And then, just for good measure, the Cavaliers beat the Lakers.
It was evident from the beginning just how much Irving was missed. Kyrie wasted no time in making his impact felt and the Cavaliers opened up a huge...
