CLEVELAND – Kyrie Irving started on Sunday as the Cavaliers dominated the Philadelphia 76ers, 108-86.
The Cavaliers trailed the 76ers for a good part of the first quarter, but really turned things up in the second quarter to take a bigger lead. They went into halftime up 55-38.
LeBron James led the Cavs with 17 points at the half, while Matthew Dellavedova had 10.
The Cavs continued to run away with the game as they added to their lead in the third. The quarter ended with the Cavs up 88-60.
The 76ers couldn’t keep up in the fourth either, with the Cavs leading by more than 30 most of the quarter.
Irving announced his return on Saturday, after he missed the beginning of the season due to injury. The last time Irving played was in Game 2 of the NBA Finals before fracturing his left kneecap.
The Cavaliers are off until Wednesday when they take on the New York Knicks at home at 7 p.m.
