CHICAGO - Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has a hyperextended right knee and will miss tonight's game against the Bulls. Irving has missed 13 games this season. Irving also sat out Tuesday's game in Chicago, and the Cavs won without him, snapping an 11-game losing streak against the Bulls. The absence of Irving meant both star point guards were out of action at the United Center on Tuesday night. The Bulls were down two when they got the ball back with 37.8 seconds left, but Luol Deng missed a long jumper and Livingston hit two free throws to make it 100-96. "I do know it will give him four days of rest, so we'll see how he feels tomorrow and see if he needs treatment or if he can go out and do some shooting to test it.
Dion Waiters scored 25 points to help make up for the absence of Kyrie Irving, and the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped an 11-game losing streak against the Chicago Bulls with a 101-98 victory on Tuesday night.
