Cramping Forces Cavs’ Irving to Exit Game


Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving exited Thursday night’s 124-118 win over the Boston Celtics in the final minute with cramping in his right hamstring, and he had to watch from the sidelines as Cleveland eked out a nail-biter after his team led by 18 points to start the fourth quarter.

“Just tightened up, that’s all,” Irving said after the game. “I took a spill with [LeBron James] in the first half. I threw a pass to Tristan [Thompson] in the middle [of the] lane, and me and Bron bumped knees. Then my calf started getting tight and my hammy started to get tight. I felt better coming out of the second half. Then when I did that last layup, it started to cramp up. That’s all.”
