Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) is out for Game 2 against Atlanta.

5/14/2015 9:32:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is doubtful to return to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Thursday.
Insight: That's probably because the Cavaliers have played so well without him. Game 6 was tied, 35-35, in the second quarter, but Cleveland went on a, 23-9, run to finish the first half without Irving. Cleveland is a better defensive team without Irving, and they will hold Irving out as long as Game 6 remains in hand. At halftime, Cleveland led Chicago, 58-44.
