Kyrie Irving returned to Cleveland's lineup on Tuesday and recorded 28 points, 11 assists and six rebounds in the team's 100-94 win over the Lakers. Irving missed the previous 11 games with a finger injury and the Cavaliers went 2-9 without him in the lineup. The Cavaliers had lost five games in a row prior to Tuesday's win.
David West is averaging a team-high 17.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game this season for the Pacers. Indiana is struggling to get efficient production out of the point guard and center spot this season as Roy Hibbert and George Hill are shooting 38.2 and 39.8 percent from the floor respectively this season.
The Pacers have lost two games in a row to fall to 10-11 this season.
