Cavs Irving Takes Responsibility For Loss to Chicago


Following a 105-102 loss to the Chicago Bulls in which Kyrie Irving coughed up three fourth-quarter turnovers Saturday, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard took the blame for the result.

“I was just real s—-y with the basketball, that’s all,” Irving said. “Handle wasn’t crisp, and Justin Holiday threw great defensive pressure at the top of the key, and their defense was extending me out almost to half court. For me, just coming to the bench, I just got to do a better job of leading that second unit — especially when Bron [James] and Kevin [Love] are on the bench.
