Kyrie Irving's huge fourth quarter, LeBron's triple-double lifts Cavs to 112-108 win over Sixers

PHILADELPHIA: Kyrie Irving scored 19 of his season-high 39 points in the fourth quarter and LeBron James recorded his 45th career triple-double, allowing the Cavs to overcome a miserable start in Sunday’s 112-108 win against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Cavs missed their first 14 shots and trailed the entire game until Irving’s driving layup with 9:22 left gave them an 85-84 lead. James had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists for his second triple-double in his last three games. Irving, James and Kevin Love combined for 88 of Cleveland’s 110 points on a day not much went right until the fourth quarter, yet the Cavs still won their fourth straight.

Love scored 25 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Tristan Thompson had 12 points and 12 rebounds to offset another terrible shooting performance from J.R. Smith, who shot 0 for 11 and is now 1 for 22 in his last two games, including 1 for 17 from 3-point range.
