Kyrie Irving: 85 NBA games, five game-winning shots. This 3-point dagger from about 27-feet out beat the Raptors, 99-98. Imagine when he gets help!
The Cavaliers are 13-32, winners of three straight, and a couple guys they just got from Memphis (Speights and Ellington) combined for 29 points off the bench).
Help, though, is on the way – they’ve got two first-round draft picks in 2014. Wonder if they’ve love Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky shot blocking machine. The Cavaliers permit opponents to shoot 47 percent – worst in the league. How about a Noel-Varejao-Gee-Irving-Waiters starting lineup? In the East, can’t that group compete for a playoff spot with a bench of Speights-Ellington-Thompson-Zeller-Miles?
