Wrap-Up – Kyrie Irving was outstanding against Charlotte at The Q, going off for a career-high and almost single-handedly keeping the Cavaliers in the game. But it was the one that got away that’ll probably keep him up on Saturday night, as Irving’s three-point attempt with 8.9 to play in overtime rimmed out to preserve the Bobcats lead and allow them to escape with the 96-94 win.

FINAL - CHA 96, CLE 94 ... Jefferson hits one of two FT, but Spencer Hawes desperation heave falls short and Cavs fall in overtime, 96-94. Kyrie Irving scored a career-high 44 points, going 16-for-31 from the floor, including 5-of-9 from long-distance to go with 8 assists, 7 boards and three steals; Dion Waiters was the only other Cavalier to notch double-figures with 14 points in the loss.
