The Cleveland Cavaliers returned home from a 5-game road trip to host the Boston Celtics. Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson didn't want to lose this game. The two second-year players combined for 61 points and basically dominated the Celtics en route to a 95-90 win.
Kyrie scored 19 points in the first quarter and 15 points in the fourth quarter. The Celtics, as a team, scored just 17 points in the final quarter. That's ridiculous.
Tristan Thompson's 21 points came in a number of ways. He attacked the basket off the dribble and got easy buckets on pick and rolls. Luke Walton (!!) made several great plays to set up Tristan buckets.
Cavaliers vs. Celtics Final Score: Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson power Cavs win, 95-90
