Cavaliers Vs. Grizzlies Score Update: Kyrie Irving Has 19 Points For Cleveland At Half

The Cleveland Cavaliers are hanging in there against the playoff bound Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, trailing by just three at the half, 55-52.

A big reason why the Cavs are capable of hanging with the Western Conference's potential No. 4 seed is the Rookie of the Year candidate, Kyrie Irving, who has 19 points on 7-for-10 shooting. Antawn Jamison has added 12 points and six rebounds.

The Cavs had a six-point lead going into the second quarter, but the Grizzlies outscored Cleveland 29-20 in the second quarter behind the play of Marreese Speights and recent Cavalier Lester Hudson. Speights has 15 points at the break and Hudson has nine off the bench, all coming in that second quarter.
