Cavs Rookies Ready for Playoff Push
After three days of fun and exhibition basketball, (Kyrie) Irving and his fellow Cavaliers rookie, Tristan Thompson, resume their pursuit of a playoff berth. The Cavaliers (13-18) host Boston on Tuesday and travel to New York the following night to face the Knicks. These are critical games as the opponents are immediately ahead of them in the standings.
“We’ve had a good first half and probably surprised a lot of people,” Irving said. “But we’ve got some important games right away after the break and we have to be ready.”
Thompson put it more succinctly: “We have a lot of unfinished business.”
