Cleveland (WOIO) - Forget Kyrie's concussion. By the end of Wednesday's game, it was the Indiana Pacers who were feeling woozy. Kyrie Irving, back after missing three games with a concussion, threw down 12 first-quarter points, on his way to a game-high 22, as the Cavaliers cruised past the Pacers, 98-87 at Quicken Loans Arena.
Semih Erden, starting in place of the injured Andy Varejao, also came up big, with a career-high 18 points, along with 8 rebounds, and Ramon Sessions added 13 points.
The only bad news for the Cavs was the loss of guard Daniel Gibson, who left in the third quarter with a sprained ankle.
