Cavs Fall to Timberwolves
CLEVELAND, Ohio — After winning seven of 10, the Cleveland Cavaliers are suddenly limping toward the all-star break, and that includes Kyrie Irving.
The all-star guard hopped to the locker room just before halftime in a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday night, after landing on the foot of an opposing player.
He returned to score the first points of the second half of the game and finished with 20, but the ankle limited him down the stretch.
Wayne Ellington’s big three-pointer cut the Wolves’ lead to one with seven minutes left.
That’s when Luke Ridenour took over. The veteran scored 13 of his game-high 21 in the fourth as Minnesota held off the Cavs, 100-92.
The Cavs host San Antonio Wednesday before the all-star break.
