Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving

Video: Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving put on a show


It really felt like the Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant show at points Tuesday night. And it was damn entertaining.

When the two went head-to-head Kobe got the best of the battle, but Irving and the Cavaliers fot the win.

Both guys put up big lines but both were efficient, too — Kobe had 42 points on 16-of-28 shooting, Irving had 28 points on 21 shots and had 11 assists, too. They both played well, Irving just got a little more help from his teammates. (Which might want to worry Lakers fans a little.)

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
