There was a time when everybody said the Cleveland Cavaliers could not win without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

That statement has been proven wrong as peaking Cavs have won four of the past five games without Irving.

In the meantime, other players are stepping up. Dion Waiters, Luol Deng, Jarrett Jack, Tristan Thompson and Spencer Hawes have chipped in to lead the young team.

On Sunday afternoon, Cleveland dominated the East’s best team, the Indiana Pacers, 90-76.

Walters scored 19 points, Deng knocked down 15 and Thompson controlled the boards with 16 rebounds to help in chasing down the Atlanta Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Cavs, who are 14-12 since February 5, might be getting Irving back into action this week as they play at Orlando on Wednesday, at  Atlanta on Friday and host Charlotte on Saturday. The Hawks are injured and sputtering having lost six in a row.

Cleveland ended a nine-game losing streak to the Pacers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 17-point lead, the game and lost All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving in a 100-96 decision to the Toronto Raptors.

The 20-year-old Irving left the game with a bruised left shoulder late in the third quarter. X-rays were negative and he will have further tests in the next few days.

The Cavaliers locker room was kept closed for more than 20 minutes after the game while head coach Byron Scott let the team know he is tired of them blowing games in the 3rd quarter.

Amir Johnson scored 17 points and tied a career high with 16 rebounds for the Raptors.

Rookie Dion Waiters scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter for Cleveland.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have proven that they can win without second year All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

But when they’re playing one of the NBA’s top echelon teams in the Los Angeles Clippers, his services were definitely missed.

The Cavaliers played for the third straight game without Irving and it showed in a 105-89 loss.

Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul, and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to their 43rd win of the season. They lead the NBA’s Pacific Division by 9 games over the surprising Golden State Warriors.

Prior to last night’s game, Los Angeles had not won a game in Cleveland dating back 10 losses in a row to 2002.

Crawford scored 24 points,  Paul dished out 15 assists and  Griffin scored 16 and pulled down 11 rebounds.

The Cavs were led by rookie Dion Waiters with 17 points.
