Kyrie Irving had his best game of the LeBron era sparking the Cavaliers attack with 32 points and 9 assists as his team got their first win of the season in Cleveland. Per the Plain Dealer:
“The guys kept me locked in,” Irving said. “This is one of the closest teams I’ve been on, if not the closest team. They just told me to stay aggressive and play my game. With me being aggressive, it makes everything easier for everybody out there. I wasn’t necessarily out of the game mentally, but they just kept me locked in. Consistently in my ear and telling me to continue to be aggressive.”
Cavs coach David Blatt on Irving’s performance.
“I thought Ky really played a high-level game tonight,” Coach David Blatt said following the game. “We all know what a tremendous scorer he can be but he distributed the ball extremely well.”
