Cavs Nation Poll Question
Over their recent road trip, which Cavalier performance was the most impressive?
- Kyrie Irving's 34 points, 8 assists vs. Nets
Irving grew up not too far from Brooklyn, and often played pickup games in the hard-nosed borough. The sophomore signal caller seemed right at home at the newly-opened Barclays Center finishing with 34 points and eight assists. He notched 27 of those points in the second half and was a perfect 14-for-14 from the charity stripe.
Not only was Irving productive, but he was entertaining in the process. On several occasions throughout the game, he had the Brooklyn crowd on the edge of their seat, as proven in this FANCY ASSIST to Anderson Varejao.

- Dion Waiters' 28 points, seven three-pointers vs. Clippers
Waiters shone bright in his Hollywood debut, netting 20 of his 28 points in the second half and willing the Wine and Gold to the 108-101 VICTORY over the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.
The Cavaliers came out of the halftime locker room nursing a seven-point lead before Waiters blew the game open – scoring on a four-point play then drilling another two three-pointers followed by a tough runner to keep the Clippers at bay. In the third quarter alone, the No. 4 pick in this past June’s Draft went 4-for-4 from the floor, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc for a dozen points.
For the game, Waiters was 10-of-17 from the floor including an impressive 7-for-11 from beyond-the-arc. WATCH the final game highlights.
- Daniel Gibson's 19 points off the bench vs. Suns
Boobie had a season-high 19 POINTS on 7-of-9 shooting from the field, including a scorching 5-for-7 from long range in 22 minutes off the bench against the Phoenix Suns on November 9th.
GIBSON IS SHOOTING nearly 43 percent from deep on the season and with 537 triples made in his career. With that mark, Boobie is now six three-pointers away from tying Danny Ferry (543) for fourth on the Cavaliers all-time leader list.
His spark off the bench allowed Gibson to surpass 1,000 field-goals made in his career the following night in Oklahoma City.
- Anderson Varejao's 35 points, 18 rebounds vs. Nets
The Wild Thing was RUNNING WILD against the Nets, scoring at will and chasing down seemingly every loose ball and rebound.
Varejao got off to a fast start, posting 17 points and seven boards in the first quarter and didn’t slow down from there. When it was all said and done, the eight-year big man finished with a career-high 35 points to go with 18 boards (11 offensive) three assists and a pair of steals.
The last Cav to record at least 35 points and 18 rebounds was Zydrunas Ilgauskas on Nov. 3, 2004. WATCH the final game highlights.
