They say you can’t go home again. But tell that to the Cavaliers dynamic rookie duo of Tristan Thompson and Kyrie Irving.

Cleveland’s freshman tandem – who both played their high school ball in New Jersey – returned to the Garden State in style, combining for 53 points, 17 boards and eight assists, powering the Cavaliers to the 105-100 win, snapping their three-game skid.
