NBA scores: Black masked Kyrie Irving shines over weekend, but Cavs fall twice

USA TODAY Sports

Kyrie Irving scored 26 points on Friday then a career-high 41 points against the New York Knicks on Saturday, but Cleveland couldn't find a way to win either game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got Kyrie Irving back from injury just prior to last weekend but could not take advantage of the added offensive presence, losing both Friday and Saturday.

Irving scored 26 points and Anderson Varejao grabbed 18 rebounds, but Monta Ellis season-high 33 points proved too much for the Cavaliers to overcome. Brandon Jennings contributed to the Milwaukee winning effort as well, tallying 16 points and eight assists.

This matchup proved to be one of the more entertaining games of the young season, led by one of the more dynamic performances from Kyrie Irving. Irving, wearing a black mask to protect his broken jaw, scored a career high 41 points. However, the performance was for naught as Anderson Varejao missed a free throw with a chance to tie the game with one second remaining, and the Cavs fell short once again.

The Cavaliers dropped to 5-20 on the season following the two defeats.
