Cavaliers Vs. Celtics Final Score: Cleveland Falls 93-90 In Boston

Kyrie Irving helped lead the Cleveland Cavaliers on another improbable comeback, but this time the Boston Celtics held off Cleveland 93-90 at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday evening in Cleveland.

The Cavaliers entered the fourth quarter down by 18 points, but Irving netted 13 points in the fourth quarter to help bring Cleveland back to within striking distance before ultimately falling just short. Irving finished with 21 point and 6 assists while Anderson Varejao went for 20 points and 20 rebounds.

On Sunday, Irving had capped a 12-0 run to a wild, 88-87 win over the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston with a driving, game-winning layup, one of the many early highlights of Irving's career.

The Cavaliers now get a couple days off before a road game against the Orlando Magic on Friday that is slated to start at 7:00 p.m. eastern.
