Watch: Kyrie Irving Drop a Double Nickel Against the Portland Trailblazers

Kyrie Irving had to shoulder the load with LeBron James out nursing a minor wrist injury. With the Cavs being 1-8 without the King this season, Irving knew he had to take it to the next level to keep their winning streak alive. I guess you can say taking his game to the next level was an understatement as Irving channeled his Uncle Drew as he went for a career-high 55 points. If...

Video: Kyrie Irving gets a Gatorade bath following 55-point night

One-handed LaMarcus Aldridge drops 38 in Cleveland loss

Less than a week ago, LaMarcus Aldridge announced he was having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Aldridge missed back-to-back games...

LeBron James misses Cavs-Blazers game due to wrist injury

The Cleveland Cavaliers are riding high, owners of a seven-game winning streak, but to continue it, they’ll need to do so without LeBron James.

Portland Trail Blazer Robin Lopez gets “got” by Cavs mascot Moondog

Portland Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez has been terrorizing mascots throughout the NBA all season. But when he made a declaration of war against Cleveland’s own costumed ambassador to the public, Cavaliers mascot Moondog wasn’t going to take it lying down.

LaMarcus Aldridge Likely To Have Double Recovery Time By Waiting On Surgery
