Waiting For Next Year:
Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio tweeted that Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is hopefull both guards Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving will return to action Tuesday against the Lakers.
Waiters has been day to day with ankle injury, missing the Cavs last 3 games.
Irving has been out since November 21 and a Tuesday return would bring the Cavs star back almost two weeks ahead of schedule.
Cavs coach Byron Scott said he is “hopeful” Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving can return Tuesday (vs Lakers). Waiters clearly closer.

CLEVELAND -- Five straight. Nine of 10. Fifteen of 17.
If there's one constant this season, it's that the Cavaliers are finding ways not to win. They've done it while trailing for an entire game. They've done it while leading late in the fourth quarter. They've done it by keeping things close and by getting blown out (although, in their defense, not much of the...
