The Cleveland Cavaliers have one of the most promising backcourts in the league. That was evident last night, when Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters combined for 52 points in the team’s second win of the season. Irving and Waiters form a scary one-two punch, taking turns dominating and embarrassing opponents. Both players can score at will and they’ve done just that through four games.
“If we come to play every single night, I feel like we can play with the best of them on both ends of the floor,” Irving said. “We have the aggressiveness. We have the confidence. Whether anybody else believes it doesn’t matter. It’s just about us, everyone in the Cavaliers organization, believing in ourselves. I believe we are a playoff team.”
“Hopefully we can make the playoffs,” Waiters said. “We want to achieve that. We have to work our way up to that next level. That’s the main thing. For us to do that, it’ll take hard work, dedication and sacrifice. Everybody has one goal in mind and that’s to make the playoffs. We’re young, but we’re going to do whatever it takes to get there and keep building off of each other. Hopefully we can get there.”
