Kyrie Irving says Cleveland's defense will be better in the playoffs

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving said the team's defense will be better in the NBA Playoffs.

"We get to game plan for one team for a seven-game series, that would be the biggest difference," Irving said.

The Cavs are giving up 107 points a game this season. Irving says you can't compare this year's team to the championship team.

"Totally different season, totally different team," Irving said.

Irving and Indiana's best player Paul George played on the USA Basketball Team together. He was impressed how George got back from his injury.

"You know how he was developing, and how much ground he was trying to make up from what he missed from being injured," Irving said.
